LycoRed microencapsulated carotenoid and vitamin beadlets

Monday, 25 March, 2013



LycoRed has introduced a line of microencapsulated and sustainable natural carotenoid and vitamin beadlets. This highly stable, vegetarian, sustainable beadlet line, manufactured in the United States via an advanced process, will complement LycoRed’s core encapsulation technologies of applied gelatin, alginate and spray-dried coating systems.

Beverage and supplement manufacturers face obstacles when using tablet-grade carotenoids since these lipid-soluble compounds are highly unstable and oxidise very easily. LycoRed says its beadlets are stable, which protects the carotenoids and vitamins from oxidation.

The beadlets also are formulated in such a way as to not allow leakage following direct compression - a common problem associated with substandard coating systems. The starch beadlets are designed for use in dry-blend beverages as the coating is water soluble.

The starch beadlets are initially available for the carotenoids lycopene, beta-carotene and lutein, and also for vitamin D and vitamin A-acetate. The beadlets are easy to use both for dry-blend beverage mixes and effervescent tablets, as well as hard shell capsules.

LycoRed natural carotenoids and vitamin beadlets have several certifications, including NSF, kosher by OU and halal by IFANCA. They are certified vegetarian and vegan.
