Abstract(s)[Excerpt] For decades, curcumin (Cur), a natural polyphenol product derived from turmeric (Curcuma longa) has been considered one of the most promising bioactive compounds due to its health benefits such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticarcinogenic properties. However, Cur application as functional compound in food products has been limited due to light, heat, and oxidation sensitive and mainly, to poor aqueous solubility which limit its bioavailability [1]. To increase Cur bioaccessibility and consequently, increase bioavailability, several carriers have been investigated, particularly nanocarriers. Among the various nanocarriers described in the literature, lipid-based nanocarriers may offer a promising tool to increase the stability, efficacy and safety of lipophilic compounds, namely Cur [2]. Moreover, the understanding of Cur-loaded nanocarriers’ behaviour under gastrointestinal (GI) conditions is fundamental to produce safe and customized nanocarriers with optimized bioactivity for oral consumption. The aim of this study was to comparatively analyze the impact of two different lipid nanocarriers incorporating Cur - solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) and nanoemulsions (NE) – on bioaccessibility and Caco-2 cells viability.
