Since 2006, Capsulæ  develops for its industrial partners (food & nutrition, feed & animal health care, agriculture & environment, home & personal care) practical and cost-effective solutions that facilitate the use and optimize the performances of active ingredients and compounds, via microencapsulation. The company offers a full range of services, including the following:
•    Design of innovative solutions and Feasibility studies
•    Encapsulation problem solving
•    Scaling-up studies and Pilot-scale evaluation
•    Support at the industrialization stage
Microencapsulation of food ingredients is useful in meeting a number of objectives, including protection during the food incorporation process and subsequent storage, taste and odor masking and controlled/prolonged release. These advantages are both essential and decisive when developing products that are to be used in the functional food and nutraceutical market, where maintaining bioavailability and the functionality of the active principles are of the utmost importance.
A wide range of functional, lipophilic and hydrophilic ingredients in powder or liquid form can be encapsulated, including:
•    Probiotic micro-organisms
•    Vegetable oils, fish oils
•    Plant extracts
•    Aromas, fragrances
•    Mineral salts, vitamins, amino acids
•    Enzymes

Capsulae has recently launched turnkey solutions for its clients:
-CapsuBeads , using dripping technologies
-CapsuCaps , using emulsion-based technologies
-CapsuCoats , using coating technologies
These ranges of solutions allow the development of a custom-designed process which takes into account the initial characteristics of the active principle to be encapsulated, the specifications of the desired product, the final application as well as the target market.
