PROBIOTICS ENCAPSULATED IN VEGETABLE PROTEIN AND FREE OF ALLERGEN.
NUCAPS NANOTECHNOLOGY is going to develop innovative microencapsulates of probiotic bacteria based on the use of allergen-free vegetable proteins that give them advanced technological characteristics for food, nutricosmetic, and nutraceutical sectors.
This project has as a starting point the previous developments based on dietary proteins in the NANOCAPS, BIOFOOD, and INMUNOCAPS projects.
The project falls within the “Health” sector of the S3 smart specialization strategy, in the “Biotechnology” strategic technology, and responds to the challenge “Commitment to healthy eating”. This project will allow Nucaps, the first company in the world to encapsulate probiotics using natural proteins, to have new methods to encapsulate microorganisms, becoming an international benchmark.
- Title: BIOCAPS, probiotics encapsulated in vegetable protein and free of allergens.
- Execution Period: 2021 – 2023
- Entity / s executing the project: NUCAPS NANOTECHNOLOGY.
