This invention is a method of creating tunable polymer matrices that entraps bioactive components. The particles can entrap compounds such as lutein that can reduce the risk of age related macular degeneration. The bioactive compounds can also function as antioxidants. The matrices increase the stability of the entrapped components allowing a greater amount of them to reach a desired location and have a beneficial effect.
