Gentle granulation of emulsions (German article)

Product and process optimization using artificial neural networks – case study using the example of encapsulation of volatile substances by spray granulation. Food and animal nutrition products must be developed with a focus on high yields of active ingredients while maintaining low formulation costs. A continuously operated spouted bed apparatus was used to perform the process, which involves spray granulation of a liquid matrix material containing the active substance to be encapsulated.
