The aim of this study was to determine the influence of encapsulation methods on fatty acid composition and content of bioactive compounds in cold-pressed oils. Rape, flax, and safflower seed oils (10.2%) were mixed with water (70.0%) and wall components (19.8%) to obtain emulsions, which were then subjected to spray- and freeze-drying. Surface and total oil contents, and changes in contents of fatty acids, sterols, and tocopherols were compared in powders and natural oils. The spray-drying was a more effective encapsulation method compared to the freeze-drying. Fatty acid composition of the oils was quite stable during the encapsulation process. Sterol degradation was high and only 35-40% of these compounds were determined in powders. In turn, tocopherol losses were dependent both on the encapsulation method and oil type. The encapsulation by freeze-drying allowed the retention of almost all tocopherols of cold-pressed flax and safflower seed oils.
