Nutraceuticals and Food
Often more similar in processing requirements to pharmaceutical applications than food, nutraceuticals utilize chemistry to deliver benefits and nutrients from plants, fish oils and other natural sources. Microfluidics works with nutraceutical companies and ingredient manufacturers to improve product quality and stability. Products available on the market developed and produced using a Microfluidizer processor include vitamins, weight loss powders, oral vitamin sprays and functional foods enhanced with nutrients such as omega-3. Why do so many nutracuetical companies choose Microfluidics over conventional mixing technologies?
Food producers continually seek ways to improve color, taste, texture and nutritional value. Microfluidizer processors produce highly concentrated emulsions which, when added to foods, intensify color and flavor. A key contributor to advancements in nutriceuticals, these systems also process liposomes to enable the slow release of nutrients that can be more easily ingested.
