Abstract

The common turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) is a plant originated from Southeast Asian countries, which belongs to the Zingiberaceae family. After drying, turmeric rhizomes may be submitted to extraction processes giving origin to essential oils or to its main pigment, curcumin, a yellow pigment used in food industry to impart color and flavor and, in pharmaceutical industry, for its antitumoral and antioxidant properties. Curcumin is soluble in ethanol and in other organic solvents but is insoluble in water, in addition of presenting instability against different physical and environmental factors, such as light, pH and high temperatures. With the objective of both increasing the pigment stability and of its functional properties, either during storage or during the shelf life of the products in which its is used as an ingredient, as well as facilitating its use in aqueous media, this research project intends to study the microencapsulation process of the turmeric oleoresin through its coverage by a polymeric water soluble matrix based in mixtures of gelatin and Arabic gum or gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen. It is also intended to evaluate the physical-chemical and functional properties of the obtained microcapsules and to study the stability of the microencapsulated pigment against light, pH and temperature. In order to attain such objectives the following aspects will be evaluated: the most adequate proportions of encapsulating materials and oleoresin; the effect of ultrasound application during the pigment emulsifying step; the effects of drying conditions either by spray drying or by freeze-drying on the encapsulation efficiency and on the stability of the obtained microcapsules.
