RAPS microencapsulation enables the customised coating of raw materials. Unlike conventional coating processes this innovative technology can be used to evenly coat products with grains measuring 100 μm to 12 mm, even if they are irregularly shaped. This protects them against temperature fluctuations, moisture and oxygen. At the same time it makes products more stable in their flavour and colour.
This RAPS technology enlarges the areas many times over in which microencapsulation processes can be used in the food industry. Raw materials given special properties by this coating process can provide a foundation for developing unusual and pioneering products.
Areas in which microencapsulation can be used
Products evenly coated using microencapsulation are more versatile for use in the food industry. From baked goods and confectionery, to food supplements, convenience and frozen products, all the way to meat and sausage goods, this process can be used in almost every field. It is therefore a growth-driver and an area that showcases RAPS’ technological expertise.
