Micronization and Nanoparticle
The Coating process can also be used in combination with Micronization and Nanoparticle processes providing unprecedented control and performance over the functional characteristics of each ingredient. The Nanotechnology increasingly used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals is now available in an accessible way for the food and beverage industry. This technology is a response to a number of industrial and market needs, as it allows the use of smaller amounts of raw material, in some cases tens of times smaller, with an enormous boost of characteristics such as flavor, aroma, bioavailability, biocompatibility and modulation of ingredients. Micro and Nanoencapsulated products may be marketed in powder or liquid forms.
By means of Encapsulation – Coating the raw material or active ingredient by a protective membrane – it is possible to optimize the Bioavailability of ingredients. This way, Bio Actives, we can control and program the release schedule, as well as the vectoring of active principles according to the particle size, nature and thickness of the coating.
Emphasize desirable attributes or cancel undesirable in industrial applications (aromas, flavors, textures and colors), opening up new and promising possibilities in the development of premium products with high added value and superior performance.
Increased performance, extended shelf life, preservation of product characteristics and greater control of raw materials dosing ensures versatility never possible before for foods and beverages that utilize the technology of Encapsulation.
