Lipofoods - Microencapsulation Technologies

Lipofoods, a Lubrizol company, is a leading developer of microencapsulation technologies for the fortification of functional foods and dietary supplements industries. Our microencapsulated functional ingredients provide nutritional and technical solutions to YOUR BRAND, enabling the development of your premium products with leading performance claims and enhanced functionality.


Microencapsulation for improved functionality

Micronutrient deficiencies, such as iron, calcium and zinc, are a worldwide health and socioeconomic concern. While food fortification is generally considered the best approach for eradicating micronutrient deficiencies and preventing undesirable health conditions like anaemia and osteoporosis, there are some technical issues associated with these ingredients, often resulting in objectionable organoleptic changes, reduced bioavailability and challenging incorporation in final products.

Microencapsulation is currently the leading solution to overcome these technical limitations. Its shield-like coating avoids interactions, improves dispersibility and enhances bioavailability of functional food ingredients.

Lipofoods' expertise in microencapsulation technologies has made us a leading supplier of functional food ingredients for a wide range of food applications. We have a well-established distribution network and are an ISO:22000 certified company.

Benefits of microencapsulation technology

  • Enhanced bioavailability
  • Controlled interactions with other components
  • Improved stability and dispersibility in final formulas
  • Minimised unpleasant taste and controlled release of functional and health ingredients
  • Consequently, easy enrichment of various types of foods, drinks and dietary supplements for YOUR BRAND is permitted
