  • Publication number: 20110064817
    Abstract: The invention relates to microcapsules, and a continuous micro-encapsulation water-in-oil-in-water microencapsulation process through in situ and interfacial polymerization of the emulsion. The formulation comprises a continuous water phase having a dispersion of microcapsules which contain oil drops and wherein the inside of each oil phase drop—containing optionally oil-soluble materials—there is a dispersion of water, or aqueous extract or water dispersible material or water soluble material. The oil drops are encapsulated with a polymerisable material of natural origin. Such microcapsules are appropriated for spray-dry processes, to be used as dry powder, lyophilised, self-emulsifiable powder, gel, cream and any liquid form. The active compounds included in the microcapsules are beneficial to the health and other biological purposes.

  • Publication number: 20110052751
    Abstract: The present invention relates to animal feed compositions which are useful for balancing body weight in companion animals and which after ingestions results in reduced calorie intake at a subsequent meal. It has been found surprisingly that the calorie intake of a pet can be reduced without negative effects towards the begging behavior of the unsatisfied pet which often results in a over-feeding by the owner when the daily feed intake of the diet (preferably a calorie-restricted diet) is combined with the intake of a mixture of triglyceride oils having a solid fat content at ambient to body temperature and an emulsifier, a mixture hereinafter abbreviated by “oil-composition”.

  • Publication number: 20110045147
    Abstract: The invention provides an encapsulate comprising a protein-based encapsulation matrix that envelops one or more oil droplets containing at least 3 wt. % of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) by weight of oil; said encapsulate having a mass weighted average diameter in the range of 0.5-5000 ?m, wherein the protein-based encapsulation matrix contains at least 10 wt. % of a protein that has been cross-linked by means disulfide cross-links, said protein-based matrix further being characterized in that: i. less than 75 wt. %, preferably less than 40 wt. % of the protein contained in the protein-based matrix can be dissolved when 75 mg of the encapsulate is dispersed in 50 ml distilled water having a temperature of 5° C. at any pH within the range of 3.0-7.0; ii. the weight percentage of the protein that can be dissolved is at least a factor 1.3 higher when in the procedure under i) the distilled water is replaced by an aqueous solution of 2 wt. % dithiothreitol (DTT).
