Optical microscopy images of the beads (A) and percentage of Feret’s diameter reduction with respect to alginate (A) beads (B). White beads in A correspond to control beads without lycopene. Standard deviation values are included. The letters below the columns indicate significant differences between values with p < 0.05. A alginate, T trehalose, Ch chitosan, P pectin, AAG arabic gum
