In this study, we investigated the effect of alginate-pectin-poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) electrospun fibres on the stability of folic acid. Fibre-forming solutions containing folic acid were prepared by blending low- or medium-viscosity alginate with pectin. PEO was added to make the electrospinning process possible. Folic acid encapsulated in electrospun fibres achieved close to 100% retention when stored in the dark at pH 3 after 41 days of storage. By contrast, recovery of unencapsulated folic acid was 0% and 8% within the first day when stored at pH 3 in the presence and the absence of light, respectively. Electrospun fibres produced from the combination of alginate-pectin resulted in higher retention of folic acid compared to that of alginate alone. Nucleic magnetic resonance and FTIR results show that folic acid has been encapsulated in electrospun fibres through physical entrapment.
