Fabrication of β-carotene loaded glucuronoxylan-based nanostructures through electrohydrodynamic processing

Various concentrations of β-carotene (2.5–20% w/w dry mucilage weight) were loaded within Cydonia oblonga mucilage (COM) which further processed through electrohydrodynamic processing (EHP) to attain BC-Loaded nanostructures of high thermochemical stability. The BC loaded COM systems were characterized in terms of droplet size, rheological properties, surface tension, and electrical conductivity and their subsequent impacts on the morphology and physicochemical attributes of the produced nanostructures were studied. Increasing the β-carotene content, increased the viscosity and droplet size of colloidal systems but diminished their conductivity and surface tension. A transition from monomodal to bimodal size distribution was also observed at higher levels of β-carotene incorporation. In the case of EHP-produced nanostructures, scanning electron microscopy observations revealed a transition from …
