Flowactives® – Encapsulated products for alimentary use

FLOWACTIVES® products are developed using the microencapsulation technology, a process through which row materials, both liquid as solid, are protected with a very thin membrane to obtain the following benefits:

 

  • Transformation of liquid raw materials in a free flowing powder
  • Flavours and odors masking
  • Increased stability of active ingredients
  • Increase resistance to high temperatures and mechanical stress
  • Reduced oxidation of the active ingredient
  • Active ingredients concentration up to 87%
  • Use in the preparation of tablets and capsules, for a controlled release of the active principle at predetermined conditions

 

The encapsulated product can have dimensions between 100 and 1000 micron, depending on application and relative oil density.
