NutraShield™ Micronencapsulations

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.

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 nutrient. 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™ Granulations

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 effervescence.
