Encapsulating volatile substances – Product optimization with artificial neural networks (German article)

Case Study: Food and feed products have to be developed with a focus on high yields of active ingredients and low formulation costs at the same time. As a typical industrial application, the encapsulation of volatile substances, e.g. flavors or PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids), into dense and free-flowing granules is explained in this paper. This process improves storage stability, protects the products from oxygen and can be carried out with a continuously operating spouted bed apparatus. (aticle in German language)
