Nanoemulsions have small droplet size and are kinetically stable colloidal systems. They have enhanced functional properties in comparison to conventional emulsions. The composition and structure of the nanoemulsions can be controlled for the encapsulation and effective delivery of bioactive lipophilic compounds. Nanoemulsions have potential application for the delivery of nutraceuticals and antimicrobials. Small compressed micelles developed serves as a carrier for fat soluble bioactives. The micelles incorporated  pass through the digestive system effectively and to the absorption sites without undergoing degradation.
