Abstract: The objective of the current study was to encapsulate flaxseed oil extracted from finely grounded flaxseed powder and determined for its fatty acids content by GC/FID. Ionotropic gelation method was used to form beads containing 40% flaxseed oil with vitamin E being used as an antioxidant agent. The study employed calcium chloride solution as crosslinking agent with a combination of sodium alginate and salep. The effect of polymer concentrations and calcium chloride concentration on the morphology, entrapment …
