Functional foods can be improved by addition of bioactive nutrients to enhance health and mitigate disease conditions. Encapsulation can also be used to facilitate the absorption of poorly assimilated compounds. Innovative nanoscale methods are creating alternative delivery options for nutraceuticals. The EU-funded greenEV project proposes the development of a continuous plant tissue culturing system for...
