PRACTICAL APPLICATION: Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) were used in this study to encapsulate vitamin D₂, a vitamin important for bone health. It was found that as the concentration of vitamin D₂ increased in the lipid phase of SLN dispersion, the clarity of the dispersion increased. Also, with increased vitamin D₂ concentration, the stability of lipid crystal structure was affected in a way that indicates higher capacity of lipid to incorporate the vitamin molecules and hence to protect them better from oxygen and light. This vitamin loaded SLNs may offer alternatives to milk and margarine as a source of vitamin D.
