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.

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, 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 through the use of a spray dryer or fluid bed.
