Biopolymers, including proteins and polysaccharides, have enormous potential applications in nanoencapsulation technology. The synergistic effect of different biopolymers makes biopolymer complexes excellent candidates for delivery, targeting, and controlled release purposes in food, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries. The objectives of this chapter are to cover the fundamentals of delivery systems generated by mixed biopolymers. Therefore, an overview of the biopolymer complexation will be presented in the first part of the chapter. Further, the application of different mixed biopolymer ...
