Carotenoids are natural pigments to be responsible for yellow-orange-red color in many organisms. They are being widely used not only for natural colorant in foods and beverages, but also for health. By scavenging singlet oxygen and peroxyl radicals, carotenoids play important biologic activities associated with antioxidant properties. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables full of carotenoids content will strengthening immune system, decreasing risk of degenerative illnesses such as cancer, preventing risk of cardiovascular disease, preventing macular degeneration, and reducing risk of cataracts. However, carotenoids are unstable molecules sensitive to light, temperature and or extreme pH in the presence of oxygen. Encapsulation has become an important technology to overcome the instability problem, helping to protect those carotenoids pigment under the desired conditions, especially when they are ingested in the body. For the encapsulation purposes, an optimized design of capsules, choosing the best encapsulation process and conditions are important factors to be considered. This paper discusses application of carotenoids encapsulation technique in this field.
