LycoRed vitamin B formulations for dietary supplements

Thursday, 17 May, 2012



LycoRed has developed formulations designed for hair and nail nutrition based on vitamin B complex and amino acids. The systems are made using LycoRed’s microencapsulation technology.

Vitamins such as thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2) and biotin, along with choline, can benefit hair and nails. Deficiencies can lead to loss of hair and weak, brittle nails.

Combining different nutrients with diverse organoleptic properties in dietary supplements is not always easy, due to undesired aromas or flavours, such as vitamin B1 and methionine. Microencapsulation can mask these unwanted aromas and flavours.

LycoRed’s formulations are suitable for manufacturers of dietary supplements. The company claims microencapsulation improves the flowability and direct-compressible nature of B-vitamin amino acids.

The product is reportedly stable in both tablet and hard-shell capsules.
