Controlled Release

Many nutritional supplements contain nutrients that need to be released over a period of time or at a specified time within the body. Controlling the release of certain ingredients allows them to reach their appropriate destination while supporting maximal benefits of the nutritional active. ABITEC supplies a range of products that aid in the controlled release of your nutritional ingredients.

Feature Product: STEROTEX®

Sterotex P is a spray chilled powder produced from fractionated, non-hydrogentated, refined palm oil. It is an excellent ingredient for developing encapsulated multi-particulates, and matrix multi-particulates by means of congealing, hot-melt spraying, or micro-encapsulation processing. Sterotex is utilized as an encapsulating coating or as a matrix material in applications such as controlled release (sustained-release and delayed-release), active barrier protection, and taste masking. Sterotex serves as a uniform, encapsulating outer shell which protects the active and allows for modified release.

Capmul functional lipids act as solubilizers and emulsifiers in oral delivery systems. Capmul ingredients are recognized as the ideal starting point when formulating poorly water soluble and poorly permeable molecules. Lipid based nutraceutical delivery systems may be formulated as liquid or semi-solid formulations for oral dosage forms.

Featuring Capmul GMS-50K, our unique lipid excipient is ideal for controlled release applications because it is a solubilizer, emulsifier and has a high melt point.
