We don’t make the bars or bites! We make them healthier:
Watson does not make foods and beverages. We make them healthier!
Custom Micro-encapsulation - Watson designed a specialized
Microencapsulation to mask the salty taste of the potassium. The coating matrix had to
survive the bar making process which involved high heat, high moisture levels, and acidity.
This required some problem solving!
Spray Drying - The Vitamin E, Vitamin A Palmitate and Vitamin K are spray
dried by Watson
Trituration – The Iodine is from a Watson trituration. A trituration of
potassium iodide onto dicalcium phosphate as a carrier in allows for us to accurately
deliver small amounts of the nutrient in a homogeneous blend.
Custom Nutrient Premix – Watson formulated a custom Nutrient premix using
the microencapsulations, spray dried nutrients and trituration listed below. The best forms
of each nutrient were selected, usage rates calculated.
Certificate of Analysis – Every Watson Custom Nutrient Premix is assayed in
our inhouse lab to ensure it meets specification.
