ß-carotene: the best choice for the global market

INNOBIO uses advanced extraction techniques to produce high-quality ß-carotene. Strict testing standards guarantee that INNOBIO products always meet or exceed EU and US standards. INNOBIO ß-carotene products are available as oil suspension (OS), cold-water-soluble (CWS) powders, and beadlets to meet a range of formulation applications.

INNOBIO technology and quality control always insure a superior quality ingredient with enhanced yield and stability. INNOBIO technologies for ß-carotene include:

  • Crystal: with fermentation using blakeslea trispora, food-grade extraction techniques ensure product safety and reliability.
  • Oil suspension: INNOBIO nano emulsion technology guarantees a particle size of <10µm; INNOBIO steady-state technology also ensures ß-carotene stability.
  • CWS powder: INNOBIO microencapsulation technology ensures excellent cold-water solubility and product stability
  • Beadlets: the double-shell structure is designed for high strength and shear resistance during tableting, minimising tablet damage and ß-carotene extrusion. It also protects ß-carotene from a possible cross-reaction with other ingredients in the formulation.

Applications for ß-carotene products

ß-carotene oil-suspension advantages include non-GMO vegetable oil suspension; smooth flowing and slightly viscous material with micro-milled ultra-fine particles (particle size <10µm guaranteed) for vegetarian, kosher, halal, allergen-free, non-GMO and BSE/TSE-free products. It is an excellent choice for soft-gel capsules and the fortification of foods.

ß-carotene CWS powder advantages include that it is rapidly self-dispersed; has excellent cold-water solubility; is stable in low-pH applications and formulations; thermal and light stabile, with superior flow characteristics for kosher, halal, non-GMO and BSE/TSE-free products. Applications include powdered drinks, pre-mixes, beverages and tablets.

ß-carotene beadlets have robust characteristics with exceptional stability for a longer shelf life; they are cold-water dispersible for improved bioavailability for vegetarian product options, as well as being suitable for kosher, halal, non-GMO and BSE/TSE-free products. Applications include two-piece capsules and tablets.

INNOBIO ß-carotene products are available in a variety of forms to meet a wide range of product and formulation requirements. Its scientists understand product formulation challenges and have creative solutions to meet these tests.
