Abstract: Lysozyme was incorporated into glyceryl palmitostearate (GPS) pellets by compression and melting at loadings of 2, 5 and 10% (w/w). Released lysozyme from both compressed and melted pellets showed good retention of enzymatic activity (>80% active). The percentage lysozyme recovered during in vitro release experiments, over 120 h, was significantly lower from the melted pellets (<15%) compared with compressed pellets (71-85%). Scanning electron microscopy suggested this difference in release was due to differen…
