NutraShield microencapsulated nutrients have a protective coating called a matrix applied around the nutrients core. The matrix keeps the active ingredient locked in and stabilized.
Watson Functionally Optimized Nutrient Technologies
In-house technologies used to improve the functionality of nutrients in your food, beverage and supplement products. Our functionally optimized nutrient portfolio covers a wide variety of categories including vitamins, minerals, botanicals, amino acids, sweeteners, carbohydrates, fats (oils), fibers and acids.
Our TechVantage functionally optimized nutrient technologies provide optimizations in the areas of color/clarity, taste, stability, dispersibility and bioavailability.
Microencapsulation transforms nutrients in a variety of ways to improve functionality, including masking odors and flavors, improving stability, controlling color intensity, converting oils to powders and delaying the release of nutrients. These ingredients are commonly used in dietary supplements, bars, cereals, snacks, powder drink mixes, beverages, infant nutrition, and medical food, to name a few. Methods used include core and shell encapsulation and matrix encapsulation.
NutraShield nutrients are available in these categories:
GranulPlex granulated nutrients are formed through creating single particles from multiple small and large particles.
Granulation allows for improved instantization, providing a significant improvement in dispersibility. It also allows for a better performing compressible powder. The result is a free flowing powder that allows for uniform fill in the dies and its cohesive properties promote tablet hardness and minimizes friability. Ideal for use in supplement tablets, chewables and effervescents.
GranulPlex nutrients are available in these categories:
UniTrit triturated nutrients are standardized on a carrier for homogeneous delivery of nutrients.
Trituration allows for easier distribution in the final blend and for ease of scaling. Triturated Nutrients can be customized to any level of active to carrier ratio or percentage. The process assures correct dosage and prevention of costly overages and errors. Ideal for dietary supplements and foods.
UniTrit nutrients are available in these categories:
