  • Publication number: 20110274795
    Abstract: The present invention provides processes and systems for preparing self-supporting film-forming compositions. The process generally includes the steps of: (a) providing a self-supporting film-forming matrix including an edible polymer component and a fluid carrier selected from the group consisting of water organic solvents and combinations thereof: (b) degassing the matrix via the steps of: (i) directing a flow of the matrix having a first density through at least one volume reduction device: and (ii) increasing the density of the matrix to form a second density. The present invention further includes the addition of actives to the matrix so as to provide an active-containing degassed film forming matrix.
