Abstract

Article discusses globular protein gels as potential devices for controlled delivery of biologically activesubstances. By simply adjusting of several gelation variables, it is possible to obtain protein gels with different matrix structureand swelling characteristics. The advantages of using food protein based gels is their biodegrability and natural way ofpreparation without any chemical cross-linking agents. Advances in technology of globular protein gels as carriers forcontrolled release of drugs and nutraceutics are presented in the paper.
