Lipofoods to launch microencapsulated botanical ingredients

Lipofoods is to introduce a new line of microencapsulated botanical ingredients supported by proprietary science for proven efficacy. The inaugural product, Curcushine microcapsules, is described as a highly bioavailable microencapsulated curcumin source for the beauty-from-within market. The formulation is natural and vegan, with high solubility when dissolved in water. It can be readily incorporated into nutricosmetics and beauty drinks.

Lipofoods says it is engaged in ongoing research into the anti-aging and other health condition benefits of Curcushine microencapsulated curcumin, seeking out new markets and different food applications.

Curcushine microcapsules are said to have proven anti-aging benefits and to be suitable for multiple nutraceutical applications. Due to the use of biodegradable materials for the encapsulation of the curcumin compound, production is said to leave a minimal ecological footprint. The formulation is gluten-free, vegan/vegetarian, and kosher and halal.
