Natural nanotechnology for Nutrition and health. New encapsulation technology, for oral delivery of bioactive substances and microorganisms. Diet related illnesses (heart disease, obesity, diabetes...) are the largest cause of death in western countries. This has increased the demand for functional foods, nutraceuticals and probiotics to prevent and combat these diseases. But producers face important difficulties to manufacture new products (poor bioavailability, degradation, etc.), and some bioactives with healthy properties cannot be used in an efficient and affordable way in oral administration. We have been working for nearly ten years in a research project to solve these problems. Nanocapsules protect the actives, increasing shelf life and stability, improving solubility and absorption, masking undesirable tastes and odours.
If you have a proposal on some of these areas, we will gladly analyze:
