What is micro­encapsulation?

Inovia, your partner for innovation!

Microencapsulation ensures that active substances are released at the right time, at the intended site and in the correct amounts, allowing efficient delivery to their targets.

Why microencapsulation?

  • Taste, odour, and colour masking (bitterness or pungency of herbs/spices)
  • Protection against light, oxidation, heat, acids or bases (vitamins and enzymes)
  • Moisture protection (hygroscopic salts or minerals)
  • High retention of volatile components (flavourings, essential oils)
  • Prevention of undesirable chemical reactions with other components (iron salts, organic acids, enzymes, catalysts)
  • Controlled/delayed release (pharma, plant protection agents, fertilizers)
  • Improved handling before or during processing (flow properties, dust formation)
  • Conversion of liquids to solids (plant oils, fats)
  • Personal protection against harmful or unpleasant materials (chemicals, pigments, flavour concentrates)
  • Improved solubility/suspendability via surface modification (emulsions, suspensions)
