Food Ingredient Microencapsulation Services
Patented Food Ingredient Microencapsulation Technology
IFP's fluid bed technology is at the core of our patented food ingredient microencapsulation services. We stabilize your formulations, provide flavor enhancements, and protect ingredients that have poor stability by producing a high performance coating system that creates layers over the core particle’s surface. This process is also commonly referred to as Encapsulation.
Our fluid bed technology creates a coating system where particles are repeatedly propelled through a mist of atomized coating droplets. The multiple layers of coating results in a thin, but very strong shell over the active ingredient. Functionally microencapsulated ingredients are used to:
- control food ingredient interaction within its environment
- extend shelf-life through controlled release of active ingredients
- reduce moisture pick-up by hygroscopic ingredients
- mask unwanted taste and flavor
- extend release of ingredient interaction
Our microencapsulates are tailored for use in your specific product. Whether in baking, confectionary, meat, or another application, let us know your processing conditions and we'll create a microencapsulated ingredient that consistently performs to the survival and release profile your system demands.
IFP has launched a series of Non-PHO microencapsulated ingredients that retain ingredient survival and release properties that are also cost-favorable and label friendly.
IFP’s non-PHO replacement coating systems have been tested in the most stressful conditions (i.e. frozen meat grinding) delivering equal survival properties, little to no cost impact, and label friendly for consumer acceptance and appeal.
Food ingredient microencapsulation services protect ingredients from its environment until release or interaction is desired. IFP's PrimeCAP® Encapsulated Specialty Ingredients are off-the-shelf solutions that can be further customized to your food application needs, or IFP can also provide food ingredient microencapsulation services of your custom ingredients.
- What is Encapsulation?
Food Ingredient encapsulation protects an ingredient from its environment until release or interaction is desired. IFP's PrimeCAP® Encapsulated Specialty Ingredients are off-the-shelf solutions that can be further customized to your food application needs. Custom Encapsulated Ingredients also avaialble.
