How to get the best out of your supplements?

 

flowactives

Microencapsulation by coacervation is employed by a wide range of industries. FlowActives® microcapsules provide proven benefits in the formulation of food supplements and nutraceuticals:

  • Controlled release of the active ingredient
  • Transformation of raw material from liquid to solid
  • Improvement of the active ingredient’s stability over time
  • Greater flowability for better machinability of the product
  • A reduction in oxidation of the active ingredient
  • Resistance to high temperatures and to mixing
  • Masking the flavour of the raw ingredients
  • Possibility of mixing incompatible substances
