Particle Size Enhancement
Optimize the Performance of Your Product 

Achieve Peak Effectiveness with Particle Size Enhancement 

Optimize product performance with our range of particle size enhancement services, including micronization, agglomeration, spray drying, and microencapsulation. From improving shelf life and blend homogeneity to enhancing flavor and increasing bioavailability, we’ll transform our ingredients to ensure maximum effectiveness.

 

Benefits of Particle Size Enhancement

Our particle size enhancement techniques may help to deliver the following benefits:

  • Improved stability and shelf life

  • Improved homogeneity of a blend

  • Prevent cross-contamination

  • Reduced hygroscopicity

  • Enhanced solubility and flow/dispersibility

  • Mask off-notes in taste and smell

  • Prolonged shelf life

  • Reduction of overages

  • Enhanced mouthfeel

  • Targeted and time-delayed release of active ingredients

  • May increase bioavailability

Micronization

Yield finer particle sizes and uniform mesh size for better sensory characteristics and smoother blends. Through micronization, we improve the solubility and blending properties of powders for sports and lifestyle nutrition blends, flour fortification, infant formulas, and more. 

 

Benefits of micronization include:

 

  • Maximum solubility/suspension

  • Better water dispersion

  • Increased surface area

  • Improved bioavailability

  • Time-release engineering

Microencapsulation

Improve  challenging sensory attributes and increase the bioavailability of your product with microencapsulation.  This process is also beneficial when targeting a time-release mechanism in the gut.

  • Flavor and odor masking

  • Protection of bioactive ingredients from heat, stomach acids, and incompatibility with other ingredients

  • Improved stability and shelf life

  • Targeted and time-delayed release of active ingredients

  • Stable separation of incompatible substances

  • Enhanced solubility and flow

  • Bioactive ingredients, such as caffeine and creatine

  • Oils (fish oil, sesame oil)

  • Flavors and essential oils (vanilla, orange, lemon, peppermint)

  • Vitamins

  • Amino acids

  • Enzymes 

  • Probiotics

  • Microorganisms

  • Omega-3 fatty acids 

Spray Drying

Through spray drying, our experts turn solutions  into dry powders quickly and easily.  This process  can be used for oil-soluble vitamins such as A, D, and E.

 

Benefits of spray drying include:

 

  • Easy incorporation of liquid ingredients into dry premixes

  • Easier handling and scaling in production

  • Free-flowing powders

  • Increased shelf-life stability

Agglomeration

Enhance the application qualities of your powder and increase solubility and dispersibility. By applying agglomeration, our experts produce larger particles and a more free-flowing powder. 

 

Benefits of agglomeration include:

 

  • Improved bulk density of powders for tablet production

  • Greater solubility/dispersibility

  • Flexible particle size

  • Enhanced material flow

  • Improved sensory experience

  • Reduced caking

  • Elimination of dust
