Encapsulated systems are particularly important for food industry and pharmacy. The challenge in producing microcapsules is to achieve the highest possible amount of entrapped material and to control the release of this material. In this study, two lipophilic emulsifiers and their influence on the encapsulation efficiency and the release behavior of the obtained microcapsules, consisting of a hard fat and a salt solution, concerning the release in aqueous environment are compared. © 2018 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
