The effects of wall composition and heat treatment on the formation and properties of core-in-wall emulsions (CIWEs) consisting of whey protein-coated milkfat (AMF) droplets and a dispersion of non-fat milk solids (MSNF) were investigated. Microcapsules were prepared by spray drying these CIWEs. The d3.2 of the CIWEs ranged from 0.36 to 0.54 μm. Surface excess of the CIWEs ranged from 1.39 to 6.57 mg/m2, and was influenced by concentration of whey proteins and heat treatment (30 min at 90°C). Results indicated a preferential adsorption of β-lg at the O/W interface. Whey proteins accounted for up to 90% of the proteins adsorbed at the O/W interface. The core retention during spray drying ranged from 90.3% to 97.6% and microencapsulation efficiency ranged from 77.9% to 93.3%. The microcapsules exhibited an excellent long-term oxidative stability at 20 and 30°C that was superior to that of microcapsules consisting of milkfat and...
