Capsoil to showcase tech for converting oil-based ingredients into water-soluble powder for gummy supplements at SupplySide West

Adding “meaningful” doses of lipid-based functional ingredients can be a challenge with gummies due to the ingredients’ “inherent lipophilic nature and a tendency to exert strong aromatic overtones,” the company explains.

Capsoil FoodTech by Prodalim Ltd. (Winter Garden, FL) is bringing its technology that converts oil-based ingredients into water-soluble powder for gummy supplements to the SupplySide West trade show, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2022, in Las Vegas. At Booth 2818 at the show, the company will showcase a variety of functional gummies created using its platform.

“Opening the door to the inclusion of soluble lipids will bring gummy producers new opportunities to offer ingredients such as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs); omega fatty acids; vitamins A, D, E, K; coenzyme Q10; carotenoids; and lipid-soluble botanicals, such as terpenes and cannabinoids, in flavorful chewy formats,” the company says in a press release.

Adding “meaningful” doses of lipid-based functional ingredients can be a challenge with gummies due to the ingredients’ “inherent lipophilic nature and a tendency to exert strong aromatic overtones,” the company explains.

“By nature, [lipophilic ingredients like oil-based nutrients] don’t assimilate with water and have a tendency to migrate to the surface of the gummy, exposing them to risks of oxidation and spoilage, not to mention off flavors,” added Itay Shafat, PhD, scientific director for Capsoil FoodTech, in the press release.

The company says: “Capsoil’s proprietary technology takes any oil compound and converts it to a self-emulsifying powder without the use of any chemicals or solvents or exposure to heat. This novel process results in a dry, free-flowing powder which dissolves easily in any aqueous matrix. The oil and its bioactive compounds make up to 60% of the powder and maintains the active oils’ original composition.”
