PrimeCAP® for Confectionary Applications

Encapsulated Ingredients are employed in confections for multiple applications including control of ingredient interactions and masking objectionable flavors by isolating an ingredient from its environment until release or interaction is desired. This allows the creation of new and uniquely functional products that only controlled release ingredients can achieve.


PrimeCAP® encapsulates can be tailored for use in your specific product/application.

Rely on high performance coating systems comprising multiple coat layers over the core particle's surface.

Now sought after functionality that seemed unachievable using conventional ingredients are attainable using PrimeCAP® Ingredient and Encapsulation Solutions.

Not all Encapsulated Ingredients Are Equal

There are multiple forms of Encapsulation, each with their own physical attributes, performance and cost advantages and disadvantages. The most common forms of encapsulation in the food industry include spray-chill coating, and fluid-bed encapsulation:

Spray-chill Coating is a low-cost coating process used in the food industry. The coated particles have a non-uniform, single-shell coating, which can be subject to leaking and physical abrasion cracking. Pump variations can also create variations in coating thickness. This can expose the core active to react with other ingredients. This can be critical in higher moisture systems. Active payloads are typically under 50%, and most typically 33%.
Fluid-bed Encapsulation is a process that applies multiple-layers of coating onto an active ingredient. Such a barrier can provide a high and consistent level of protection through high physical stress handling conditions as well as higher moisture environments. IFP’s innovative and patented (Patent # 6,312,521) fluidbed encapsulation technology takes our ingredients to an elevated level of cost-effective performance where high levels of performance are required. Payloads are typically 50% to 90%.
