Controlled release to protect nutrients from gastric acids.
EUDRAGUARD® control is a functional coating designed for enteric release, sustained-release formulations and gastro retention.
These water-based coatings are suitable for tablets, multiparticules and soft- and hard-shell capsules. They have been specifically designed for dietary supplement applications that require reliable and reproducible controlled-release profiles.
EUDRAGUARD® control coatings are quick and easy to apply, enabling high throughput. They provide a smooth and even finish for visual appeal and to enable easy swallowing. And because the coatings can be applied and processed at low temperatures, heat-sensitive ingredients remain fully intact. This also ensures a safe working environment.
EUDRAGUARD® control meets the regulatory requirements for use in dietary supplements in the European Union (E 1206) and the United States (GRAS).
EUDRAGUARD® control is applicable for water-soluble health ingredients that are:
Absorbed in the stomach, e.g. anthocyanins, polyphenols, niancin
Absorbed in the early parts of the upper GI track (duodenum), e.g. calcium, magnesium, biotin
Stable in acid (stomach) but not stable at neutral pH (intestine), e.g. green tea extracts, iron, riboflavin
