- Great efforts have been made to design emulsions considering the need to perform an effective encapsulation, protection, vehiculation, and bioaccessibility of lipophilic compounds. This task can be achieved by manipulating the structure of the emulsion based on the choice of the processes and ingredients of the aqueous phase, interface, and lipid matrix. Thus, the main focus of this perspective is to provide insights into the use of ingredient engineering in manipulating/building emulsion structures that enhance lipophilic compound release and bioaccessibility.
