Nutraceuticals and Bioactives Process Technology


As the name suggests, this research unit of iBET includes two different areas:

Nutraceuticals and Bioactive Ingredients with health benefits that are competitive key factors in agro–food, cosmetic or pharmaceutical industries,  and 

Process Technology  associated with the development of adequate extraction processes and efficient systems to overcome barriers to drug’s usefulness, involving particle formation (micro and nano-scale), and incorporation of the active principles in biocompatible and biodegradable matrixes.

The overall expertise is applied in the formulation of functionalized products or the production of natural bioactive ingredients, for the optimization of stability/shelf-life, solubility/ bioavailability and compatibility with target final products.
