Trituration is the process by which a micronutrient is standardized on a carrier for better distribution in the final blend, ease of scaling, and homogeneity. Glanbia utilizes a specialized plating technique to homogeneously distribute a potent micronutrient onto a carrier.

The resulting trituration can be customized to any level of active to carrier ratio or percentage by the blending of micronutrient on a carrier such as di-calcium phosphate, maltodextrin or microcrystalline cellulose, among others. By eliminating the need to scale off pure micronutrients in small quantities, correct dosage is assured and costly errors prevented. Scaling waste of costly pure micronutrients is also minimized.

Most importantly, triturations provide homogeneous dispersion of the micronutrients in your finished blend or product. Glanbia utilizes a wide range of carriers to suit the properties of your finished product, taking into consideration desired characteristics such as solubility, particle size or special label claims, as in the case of starch-free products.
