An innovative way to modify the release of active substances to avoid absorption spikes, releasing actives in a controlled manner to maintain optimum therapeutic blood levels. Beadlet technology can also help mask undesirable bitter tastes, opening up opportunities to develop products with strong tasting substances which would usually only be possible in tablet or capsule formats. Beadlets are also visually very appealing and can be coloured using vibrant natural colours to create something visually inspiring, allowing consumers to see the active ingredients.
HydroCurc® is a cold water dispersible powdered extract from the Curcuma Longa with an extract ratio of 25:1.

One of which is curcumin, and it is responsible for the bright orange pigment in turmeric.
HydroCurc® uses LipiSperse® which is a system that allows it to disperse in water and drink applications, previously this would have been impossible. LipiSperse® also won the Editors Award for Innovation at the Nutra Ingredients Awards 2019.
