  • Publication number: 20190153371
    Abstract: Ethanol-containing nanolipid particles are disclosed which can be used in food products, frozen desserts, or beverages. The nanolipidic vehicles in which ethanol-containing substances are encapsulated can be combined with food products, desserts or beverage ingredients, including foods that are subsequently frozen. The frozen food product, dessert or beverage can remain in a frozen state during consumption by an individual. A composition comprising ethanol-containing nanolipid particles, which can be used in food products, frozen desserts, or beverages is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9987234
    Abstract: Nanolipidic Particles (NLPs) having average mean diameters of 1 nm to 20 nm are made from a precursor solution. NLPs can be loaded with a desired passenger molecule. Assemblies of these particles, called NLP assemblies, result in a vehicle population of a desired size. Single application or multifunction NLP assemblies are made from the loaded NLPs and range in size from about 30 to about 200 nm. A method of using preloaded NLPs to make larger carrier vehicles or a mixed population provides increased encapsulation efficiency. NLPs have application in the cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries.

  • Publication number: 20160317452
    Abstract: A method for preparing a phospholipid delivery system encapsulating one or more bio-affecting compounds, includes the steps of solubilizing a heterogeneous phospholipid mixture into an organic solvent to form a concentrated formulation of phospholipids, in which the phospholipids include a charged phospholipid species and mixing the concentrated formulation with an aqueous solution having at least one bio-affecting compound. A method of using a phospholipid delivery system encapsulating at least one bio-affecting compound for the administration to an individual in need thereof is also disclosed.
