INNOBIO Carotenoid Beadlets-GF, An excellent choice for tablets and hard capsules

Beadlets are spherical micro-particles typically not less than 500μm in size. Beadlet technology provides an excellent opportunity to add fragile ingredients to supplements while protecting them from formulation stresses of mixing or tablet compression and to enhance shelf-life of the finished product. INNOBIO’s gelatin free (GF) Beadlet technology is a proprietary process designed for carotenoid products, including lutein, lutein ester, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, beta-carotene and lycopene. INNOBIO offers an innovative, gelatin free carotenoid beadlet formulation for a vegan compatible ingredient. INNOBIO beadlet technology can produce nanometer to micrometer capsules, protecting fragile carotenoids from degrading in harsh conditions from temperature, oxygen, or light. This technology provides improved stability while increasing application options using a wide variety of carotenoid combinations.
