What is it about?

Whey proteins have been reported to be effective for microencapsulation by the spray-drying of volatiles. Its application in microencapsulation vanilla (Vanilla planifolia Andrews) might be an effective process to the preservation of antioxidant activity in the final product. Whey protein is an alternative to produce powder with vanilla extract using spray drying. Microcapsules presented good physicochemical and antioxidant properties, and were not altered during storage period.
