Watson Functionally Optimized Nutrients
Watson Functionally Optimized Nutrients are vitamins, minerals, botanicals, amino acids, sweeteners, carbohydrates, fats (oils), botanicals, fibers and acids designed to provide specific functionality and benefits as desired by the customer.
These benefits include things like:
- easier material handling in a powder form
- reduction in overages resulting in cost savings
- standardized particle size for more uniform distribution in a blend
- potency protection and stability during processing and shelf life
- flavor and odor masking of objectionable tasting ingredients
- easy dispersion and improved solubility in solution
Microencapsulated nutrients have a protective coating called a matrix applied around a small particle called the core or active. The matrix keeps the active ingredient locked in and stabilized until the release of the material is desired. Microencapsulation transforms nutrients in a variety of ways to improve functionality, including masking odors and flavors, improving stability, changing color, changing form, delayed nutrient release. 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 spray drying and fluid bed.
Triturated nutrients are standardized on a carrier for homogeneous distribution in the final blend and for ease of scaling. They can be customized to any level of active to carrier ratio or percentage. The process assures correct dosage and prevention of costly waste and errors. We utilize a wide range of carriers to suit the properties of your finished product, taking into consideration solubility, particle size, special label claims (starch free). Applications include dietary supplements, foods, premixes, and ready-to-mix beverages.
