Spray drying is the most widely microencapsulation method used by the flavors industries, employing primarily maltodextrins and gum arabic as carrier agents. The mussel flavor formation occurs during the protein enzymatic hydrolysis of mussel meat, producing amino acids and peptides that can form aldehydes and carbonyl groups which, by reaction with reducing sugars result in the formation of volatile compounds. This characteristic flavor from mussel meat allows its application as a food flavoring. The development of mussel meat new products can be an excellent alternative to diversify and increase their consumption. Thus, the objective of this work is the study of microencapsulation of protein hydrolyzate mussel meat by spray drying and its agglomeration in fluidized bed. The processing will allow an extended shelf life, maintaining the characteristics of flavoring, in addition to providing physical stability and the powder instantization. The mussel meat hydrolysis will be carried out with ProtamexTM enzyme under temperature of 51°C, concentration enzyme: substrate of 4.5% (w/w) and static pH 6.85 conditions. In the microencapsulation by spray drying, will be studied the influence of the temperature of drying air, flow rate of the hydrolysed suspensions and different concentrations of the carrier agents (maltodextrin, gum arabic and modified starch Hicap 100). The agglomeration of the mussel meat hydrolyzate microparticles will be performed in a fluidized bed. Products obtained will be evaluated for their chemical, physical, physicochemical and sensory characteristics. The stability tests should be performed with monitoring of moisture, volatiles retention and the sensory characteristics stability. (AU)
