Mon, 31 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Disruptive Innovations in Natural Colors Consumer demand for naturally derived ingredients and raw materials have led to the increasing demand for natural colors in various industries, the foremost being the food and beverage (F&B) industry. Currently, a major trend in the industry is the clean label trend that is being actively pursued by ingredient manufacturers and product developers alike. The clean label tag helps in gaining consumer confidence and create a perception of health and wellness in various food and beverage products. While the use of natural colors is able to overcome the possible adverse effects of artificial colorants, the use of natural colorants is still considered to be in emerging stages mainly due to challenges related to stability, possible leaching and scaling. Efforts to overcome these challenges and development of natural colorants that can impart additional functional benefits are key areas of focus by both academia and industry alike. Besides the ability to develop colorants for use in a wide range of applications, technology developers are also focusing on improving cost-effectiveness to hasten wide scale adoption.

The material encapsulated is referred to as the core whereas the encapsulates is referred to as the shell . The core material for different nanocapsules differs in size, shape and composition. Encapsulation is performed to achieve specific objectives and functionalities such as targeted delivery, sustained release etc. The need to improve the stability of active ingredients and prevent degradation of the same due to environmental conditions would be the key factors enabling growth of encapsulation. Both micro-, and nano-encapsulation technologies would be predominant in all areas wherein protection and stability of the active ingredient is the key; prominent being personal care, food, and healthcare sectors. Micro-encapsulation is mostly aimed at colloidal and surface properties that provide protection against environment and provides control to the release characteristics of different coated materials while nano-encapsulation exhibits potential to enhance bioavailability, improve controlled release, and enable precision targeting of the bioactive compounds. This research service titled, Micro- and Nano-encapsulation Technology Impact Analysis analyzes the potential of the technology across various applications. In brief, the research study provides: An overview of various micro- and nano-encapsulation technologies. A highlight of various application segments and trends that influence adoption.

Aquaculture is the fastest-growing food production sector in the world, fuelled by stagnating global capture fisheries, rising global protein demand, and rapid population growth. At present, ASEAN is the second-largest aquaculture producing region in the world. Growth in ASEAN aquaculture is driven by the steady development of industries in Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand. In order to maintain seafood supplies from ASEAN, aquaculture practices in the region will be required to address the challenges pertaining to feed and seed quality, minimise disease outbreaks, and mitigate the deleterious impacts of farming operations on the environment. Issues such as climate change, growing concerns on the environment and food safety amongst consumers, and security of supply and scarcity of raw materials are the key drivers for addressing sustainability challenges in ASEAN. As global marine supplies shrink and ecosystems become increasingly fragile, sustainable aquaculture will become increasingly important in the ASEAN region. ASEAN aquaculture producers are in a position to strategically implement sustainability protocols (environmental and social) as a unique selling point for their products in order to increase their value, particularly for exports. The most significant barriers to the sustainable management of ASEAN aquaculture industry are: lack of effective regulations, limited availability of resources and support services, and inability to leverage advanced technologies. Although efforts have been made to adopt policies and establish regulatory frameworks to properly develop and manage sustainable aquaculture practices, several countries in the region are still lagging behind. The implementation of more ecologically-sound management practices is fundamentally constrained by the lack of financial and skilled human resources. Thus, issues of poverty and urbanisation need to be addressed in order to effectively manage the sustainable development of ASEAN aquaculture. In order to achieve this, the public and private sectors will be required to work collaboratively to create effective and efficient sustainability solutions. The technologies currently available for sustainable aquaculture include: feed alternatives, hatchery produced seed, gene and breeding technology, biosecurity monitoring technologies, water purifying agents, holding systems, and advanced harvesting methods. However, the large-scale adoption of such biotechnological innovations in ASEAN is constrained, as their cost is exorbitant for small-scale farmers who continue to form the foundation of aquaculture in the region. The ongoing development of biotechnological innovations for aquaculture will depend on the willingness of the ASEAN aquaculture industry to work collaboratively with scientists and the international donor community on related research, capacity building, and infrastructure development.
