Stabilization of basil oil was attempted using gum acacia and/or starch as coating materials and stabilization of major volatile flavour components was determined during 6 months storage in a flexible packaging material. The yield (67-73%) of stabilized product varied with the coating materials. Basil oil was extracted by hydro-distillation and analyzed by gas chromatograph and the results revealed that eugenol (38.0%) and fS-caryophyllene (32.9%) are the major volatile flavour components. Encapsulated oil retained the flavour (94.5-98.2%) during storage at ambient (25±2°C) and refrigerated (4±2°C) temperatures for 6 months. The stabilized (encapsulated) basil oil can be used in herbal beverages, food dishes, confectionary, baked products, chilli sauces, tomato paste, pickles, fancy vinegars and pizza.
