Capsulæ (www.capsulae.com) is a private R&D organization that designs and develops for its industrial partners customized solutions which facilitate the use and optimize the performance of ingredients and active compounds, via microencapsulation.
Microencapsulation of ingredients for food applications is useful for meeting a large number of objectives, including protection during the food incorporation process, and subsequent storage, taste and odour-masking, and controlled/delayed release. These advantages are both essential and decisive when developing products that are to be used in the functional food and nutraceutical market, where maintaining bioavailability and the functionality of the active principles are of the utmost importance.
In order to cope with the demands of a growing market, adopting a global and comprehensive vision from a technical and economic point of view is essential. Through a diversified range of services – including design of innovative solutions and feasibility studies, encapsulation problem-solving, scaling-up studies and pilot-scale evaluation, small pilot-scale production, know-how licensing and technology transfer, support at the industrialisation stage – and a unique pluritechnological expertise (dripping methods, emulsification techniques, and fluid bed coating technology), Capsulæ’s team selects the most relevant approach and proposes the best-suited processes to respond optimally to the numerous requirements of the industrial world.
Capsulæ will exhibit (Stand 6 O51-7) at the next edition of Food Ingredients Europe which will take place in Paris (France), 1-3 December 2015.
