Innovative sustainable ENCAPsulation systems for improving human HEALTH and well-being

Project description

Packing more nutrients into a microcapsule

Functional foods are fortified with beneficial nutrients or are free of certain components such as lactose or gluten. A functional ingredient is a bioactive compound used in the manufacture of functional food products. The EU-funded ENCAP4HEALTH project is proposing the use of biopolymer-based microencapsulation to improve the functionality, digestibility and absorption of these bioactives. The project is bringing together 50 international experts from 12 institutions (technical, medical and traditional universities, SMEs and multinational companies) to identify new biopolymers and develop efficient and sustainable processing technologies for encapsulation. The results will lead to greater affordability of multiple health and food applications, opening market opportunities in the food sector, which will spread out to agriculture, feed, pharma and the biomedical sector.
