26.03.2018 International symposium on microencapsulation

SternMaid, Wittenburg, Germany, reports that in association with the Bioactives World Forum (, it will be organising an international symposium on the subject of microencapsulation in Hamburg, 17-18 May 2018. Participants may expect a broad and diversified programme with specialist lectures on the technological and economic aspects of different encapsulation methods, interesting examples of applications, tasting of products, and a visit to the SternMaid facility in Wittenburg. Among others, the symposium is directed towards product developers, R&D experts, chemists, technologists and managers from the food and pharmaceutical industries, and manufacturers of food supplements.
Whether for creating bright colours in sweets and fruity flavours in chewing gum or for integrating valuable vitamins into tablets: microscopic capsules help to work sensitive ingredients into foods, food supplements and pharmaceutical products. The method offers a multitude of possibilities, but it also poses certain challenges which the symposium will address. The topics under discussion will include delayed release and stability of ingredients, enhancement of nutritional properties and the cost efficiency of the process. Among the speakers will be well known scientists and industry experts from the USA, Switzerland and Germany. During a tour of the plant, SternMaid will also present its range of products and services and show how hydrocolloids, sugar, salts or minerals, for example, can be encapsulated and processed by means of fluidised bed technology or on the blending lines. The event will be held at the InterCity-Hotel, Hamburg Dammtor-Messe. Since the number of places is limited, SternMaid recommends early registration.
