Utilizing its fluid-bed technology IFP also provides coating and granulation services.

PrimeCAP® Encapsulation: IFP’s patented encapsulation technology produces a high performance coating system comprising of multiple coat layers over the core particle’s surface.  Our encapsulates are tailored for use in your specific product.  Whether for flavor masking, enhanced shelf stability, or ingredient isolation , let us know your specific needs and we’ll create an ingredient that consistently performs to the survival and release profile your system demands.
