Spray-dried zein particles (SDZP), spray-water zein particles (SWZP) and gelatin-alginate beads (GAB) were prepared containing a defined dietary mixture and their performances were compared for delivering the soluble fraction of protein hydrolysates. Measures of performances of these three different microbound particle (MBP) types included inclusion, encapsulation, retention and delivery efficiencies in addition to T-50 (time to 50% retention) values.
