The high-stability associated with the high desorption energy of the particles at the interface is the well-known technological quality of Pickering emulsions. A further exploration territory is the tuning of the biofunctionalities of these emulsions, considering the fundamental biological process of lipid digestion. Regardless of the desired purpose, whether the control of lipid digestion or release of bioactive compounds, Pickering emulsions appear as a promising system to be investigated. For that, different strategies may arise with a focus on the nature and modification of stabilizing particles or even on the architecture of the emulsions. In this review, we present a discussion of what has been done in the realm of the physiological response during transit of Pickering emulsions along the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The indication is that more in-depth comprehension of different factors is still needed to fully harness the potential of such a system to achieve the foreseen structure function relationship. Thus, opening up the opportunity for the design and development of a new generation of reduced calorie absorption or functional food products. (AU)
