Applications for micro-
encapsulation in animal feed
Often, the goal is to enhance the smell, taste, or colour of the animal feed or to improve digestion.
We also welcome unique requests. The more challenging, the more Inovia. We work closely with you during the entire project - from concept to final product.
Micro-encapsulated essential oils exhibit high stability in feed mixtures. Premature evaporation of these volatile plant extracts can be minimized by encapsulation within an aroma-tight matrix, dramatically improving shelf-life of the final product.
Minerals contained in complex premixes may give rise to undesirable chemical reactions. Micro-encapsulation effectively blocks these processes.
Plant extracts with strong sensory characteristics (bitter, pungent) can lead to reduced feed intake. Coating these components can mask problematic odour and taste in feed mixtures.
