    Encapsulation Technologies

  • Leading the wayWhat is Microencapsulation?Lambson Microencapsulation Technologies

    • Size: typically 1µm- 1mm

    • Active ingredients are entrapped in a shell or matrix

    • This renders them temporarily inactive

    • Release of the active is “triggered” by a stimulus

  • Leading the wayWhy Encapsulate?

    Isolate, Protect and Stabilise

    Controlled Release


  • Leading the wayIsolate, Protect and Stabilise

    • Prevents degradation

    • Flavour and odour masking

    • Separates reactive components

    • Manipulation of encapsulate (Oil & water)

    • “Plug and play” add to formulation without changing it

    • Flavour /Fragrance burst or slow over time release
