Due to increasing pressure to adopt sustainable approaches to product design and manufacture, the requirement to develop sustainable products has become one of the most important challenges to industry. Currently, there is a growing trend in developing products that maintain the concept of being natural and “green”. This has motivated the utilization of bio-based products to replace petrochemicals for the formulation of Pickering emulsions for food, cosmetic and other industries. Polysaccharide nanoparticles are an excellent choice for this application, as they are derived from nature and consistent with the demands for sustainable development. This chapter’s content includes the definition of emulsions and Pickering emulsions, the instability mechanism of emulsions and the potential applications based on nanopolysaccharides stabilized emulsions and their derived functional materials.
