Many nutraceutical ingredients are not water soluble. Therefore, they are often formulated as either suspensions or emulsions. In the case of nutraceutical emulsions, the active ingredients are dis¬solved in oil or the oil phase itself can be a nutraceutical ingre¬di-ent, for example fish oil, which contains high quantities of health-promoting omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. In order to stabilize the thermodynamically instable system of two immiscible phases, emulsifying agents are required. Classic emulsifiers support the emulsion formation and stabilization by lowering the surface ten¬sion. VIVAPUR® MCG enables additional long-term stability of oil-in-water emulsions by the formation of a gel network.
