Pharma-class ingredient properties in food-grade GRAS delivery


The best and most consumer-convenient delivery method of essential botanicals, amino acids, minerals and vitamins is through food and beverage products. Unfortunately, these powerful bioactives are frequently characterized by challenging properties, even at low and ineffective dosing levels, such as foul taste, low bioavailability, gastrointestinal side effects and spike/crash phenomena.

As a result, most of today’s delivery “platforms” of natural bioactives is confined to capsules, tablets and softgels; where impactful formulations of natural bioactives mandate a handful of pills per episode, a requirement most consumers reject.

Aplication Example

Capsaicin is a potent bioactive for abdominal fat reduction, characterized by the following negative properties: ultra-pungent taste even at miniscule dosing levels, stomach irritation side effects, limited bioavailability; and a short window of activity.

Vital Technologies’ innovative NT2 platform, facilitates the resolution of all these inherent technical limitations of Capsaicin by:

  • Completely taste-isolating the pungent taste in its food and beverage products delivery
  • Elevating its dosing level with no impact on food/beverage taste and mouthfeel
  • Enhancing its bioavailability, protecting Capsaicin with a shell that disintegrates only in the small intestines
  • Slowly releasing Capsaicin in the small intestines and colon to expand its effectiveness “window”.
