Microencapsulated raw material supplier for linseed oil-based supplements

In the supplement arena, flaxseed oil is gaining more and more attention for its health benefits. The oil is extracted from the seeds of the Linum usitatissimum plant and is particularly rich in Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids which give it exceptional anti-inflammatory properties. However, linseed oil is highly sensitive to oxidation, which poses a challenge for raw material producers. There comes IPS, which offers a solution that is as simple as it is effective: microcapsules based on linseed oil.

IPS's solution is to transform the oil into a dry form, protected inside microcapsules. The process, called microencapsulation by coacervation, preserves the integrity of the oil and also improves its machinability.

Raw material supplier linseed oil

The granulometry of the linseed oil microcapsules varies from 100 to 600 μm, versatile and suitable for every need. Another advantage over conventionally prepared raw materials is the composition of the microcapsules. In fact, they contain between 75% and 85% oil.

The high concentration of the active ingredient ensures that each dose of the final supplement has remarkable efficacy for the body. This effectiveness is even greater if we consider the unaltered nutritional properties of the oil. The microcapsules can in fact be covered by a gastro-resistant membrane, capable of protecting the active substance from chemical-physical degradation and conveying it directly into the consumer's intestinal tract.

With a density of 0.6 g/ml, the microcapsules supplied by IPS are ideal for numerous shapes, from hard capsules to single-dose orodispersible sachets. Choosing IPS as a supplier of microencapsulated raw material means being able to create a final product that is both effective and versatile at the same time.
