Above all, encapsulation provides your customers with a more versatile and convenient product, giving them maximum effectiveness when and where it counts.


With our commitment to innovation and quality, choosing Prinova as your powder encapsulation supplier and long-term partner means we can help you unlock the full potential of your ingredients.


The encapsulation process

Powder encapsulation is a sophisticated process used by Prinova designed to protect and enhance the stability of your bioactive ingredients, such as vitamins, enzymes, or pharmaceuticals. Using this technique, fine particles of the ingredient get a thin, protective coating made up of proteins or sugar-based carbohydrates. 


The encapsulation process can involve different techniques, such as spray drying or fluidized bed coating, depending on the requirement and final application. As a result, the coating provides an effective barrier against different external factors, including moisture, oxygen, heat, and light. 


It also preserves the active ingredients after the product is taken, protecting them from stomach acids and incompatibilities with other ingredients to optimize efficacy through targeted and controlled release at the right time for maximum effect. 

Encapsulation technology is widely applied in industries from pharmaceuticals to food and nutrition and plays an essential role. As an experienced encapsulation manufacturer, Prinova specializes in this process and can work with you to deliver products with a precision coating to suit your needs.
