Microencapsulation of spices and extracts

The challenge:
When spices are ground their natural protective layer is brokendown. The valuable ingredients are then exposed and can escape. This results in a high loss of flavour and a significant reduction
in quality. This is the point where KapFox® technology comes into its own.

The solution:
The natural flavours and colours of spices are preserved both by their adhesion to sugars and in the form of enclosed droplets in a sugar/starch matrix. The extracts are thereby protected from evaporation, oxidation and the influence of light.
The reverse process takes place when the spices come into contact with moisture: the glassy, sugary mass is dissolved and the flavours and colours release their original natural properties. Another positive effect occurs with regard to colouring extracts from paprika and turmeric: the small particles are distributed homogeneously in the sugar/starch matrix and produce a coloured emulsion in the water – without the use of emulsifying agents (E-numbers).
The illustrated applications are only intended as examples.
