Tiny technology, big boost for bioavailability
Listen now
Young company, TINY Technologies, has cracked the code on optimised systems that address bioavailability challenges for notoriously tricky ingredients. Ingredient and food supplement manufacturers are often challenged with the low bioavailability nature of a number of different ingredients—which usually have relayed effect on the dosage, side effects, delivery, efficacy, and even compatibility with other ingredients in finished products. In fact, approximately 40-50% of ingredients within the supplement market are fat-soluble and suffer from low bioavailability. It’s not uncommon to see supplement brands advising additional dosing of a supplement to improve levels of intake, but often this causes unpleasant side effects for the end user, which can also turn out to be harmful to health. Tune into this podcast with Tobias Meller, CEO at https://tiny-technologies.com/ (TINY Technologies), to hear more about: The challenges when formulating ingredients with low bioavailability The mechanisms of active ingredient absorption in the body Leveraging technology to produce small particles with high stability and optimised active ingredients Exploring an emulsifier-modifying system for optimised ingredient use in capsules If you do like the show, make sure to subscribe and follow the https://www.vitafoodsinsights.com/ (Vitafoods Insights) podcast.
