Why Micro-Encapsulation?

In recent years a wide range of bio-actives eg; probiotics, antioxidants have been have been identified and developed to improve Health & Wellness and help prevent chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. These bio-actives are typically very fragile and face numerous challenges in the supply chain

Some challenges that bio-actives face include:

  • They can oxidise or be damaged by heat or moisture during processing and storage.

  • They can be destroyed by stomach acids.

  • Bio-actives may also not be compatible with other ingredients in the formulation

  • They may bestow an unpleasant taste.

As a result of these challenges, their ability to deliver the consumer health benefit is compromised; either because people wont consume them regularly or they are damaged or destroyed before they reach the target site in the body.

 

Micro-encapsulation

For these bio-actives to work, effective delivery systems are required and this is where micro-encapsulation plays a vital role.

What is Micro-encapsulation?

Micro-encapsulation involves protecting tiny particles of the bio-active within a coating to create a microscopic capsule. This capsule protects the bio-active from a wide range of environmental conditions and ensures it is released at an appropriate time and site within the body.

Benefits of micro-encapsulation include:

  • Flavour masking

  • Increased stability of the bio-active

  • Enhanced dispersibility

  • Targeted release

  • Enhanced bio-availability

This allows the creation of:

  • Improved version of existing bio-active based consumer products offering significantly improved consumer health benefits

  • Completely new to the world products eg; Ambient temperature stable beverages with live probiotics
