A Sol-U-Pak is a pouch that is soluble in cold water. The pouch is made entirely of edible packaging film. All components of this film have FDA approval for food use. Sol-U-Paks can be used for both industrial and consumer applications.
For Industrial application in bakeries and food manufacturers: Every step taken out of a production process yields bottom-line benefits. This may occur through reduced labor inputs, increased product throughputs, or a reduction in quality defects. It’s no surprise. Therefore, that production streamlining is critical today—we pre-measure minor ingredients into Sol-U-Pak edible film pouches. The Sol-U-Pak pouch is simply thrown on top of the other ingredients in the mixer. The pouch only takes about 10 to 20 seconds to dissolve.
For Consumer Applications: Mainstream consumers are looking for convenience and alternative delivery methods. Offering a range of delivery forms will help brands strengthen product adoption rates, continued use, and customer loyalty. Sol-U-Pak pouches of powdered drink mixes and protein powders provide the ultimate single-serve convenience.

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
Granulated & Agglomerated Nutrients
Granulation is a process of forming granules from a powder substance, allowing them to be more easily compressible in tableting. Agglomeration is a form of granulation that involves making particles larger in order for them to become more soluble in liquid or to improve the flowabiltiy of a powder.
For Beverage Formulations
Agglomeration “instantizes” the powder or makes it more dispersible. This involves rewetting the finished powder with a material (soy or sunflower lecithin), allowing the fine particles to stick together to create a much larger particle. When liquid is added, the particle’s large surface area increases its solubility, allowing it to dissolve faster.
For Compressible Tablet Formulations
Granulation and Agglomeration creates a more free-flowing powder. Consistency in physical properties such as flowability, particle size distribution, and compression profile are critical when producing a compressible tablet. All Watson agglomerations and granulations are available in starch-free formulations for use in dietary supplements with special labeling requirements.
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.
