Protection of functional nutrients for targeted delivery in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Protection of functional nutrients can be useful when a nutrient should become available over a prolonged time or at a targeted place in the digestive tract. Microbial fermentation in the rumen, acid environment of the stomach or early absorption after ingestion are some factors explaining why some functional nutrients will not arrive on the destinated location. A sophisticated coating protects functional ingredients for a too early release. A good coating technology requires a lot of expertise and differs for each feed ingredient.
