Flavor is an important sensory property of foods and beverages and is an important factor for consumers. The using of flavor in food formulation may sound simple but designing a high-quality flavor system and delivery of that to final products are challenging issues. The pure flavors are sensitive to environmental conditions such as light, heat, oxygen, etc., and when they are used in food formulation, it must be considered that food processes such as baking, pasteurization, and sterilization may lead to loss of various flavor compounds. Designing a high-quality protection system of the delivery of flavors into food formulation, which is a demanding task for the food industry, has been attracting the attention of food researchers. The incorporation of the flavor into a capsule designed with food-grade materials such as lipids and biopolymers is a popular method to produce a protection and delivery system for flavors. This is named the microencapsulation technique (Fisher and Scott, 2007).
