The final product is a 2 mm bead with a shell and core structure. A high content of 85% product is obtained. Typically, water insoluble products are encapsulated, like for example fish oil, ibuprofen, activated carbon, etc.
The benefits of this type of encapsulation are:
- taste masking
- sustained release
- personalized dose
- easy to swallow
This dosage form is easy to swallow, due to the small size of the beads, being very convenient for the peadiatric and geriatric sectors. Users with dysphagia, who are unable to swallow bigger tablets or capsules, will also benefit from this kind of dosage form. Finally, it opens the possibility to personalised dosing in the treatment of chronic diseases.
