Inventor University of Queensland
Professor Bhesh Bhandari


There are a plethora of microencapsulation technologies. Many produce small microgels, however none can produce small microgels at commercial volumes required by the price sensitive food and supplements industry. Professor Bhandari has developed a novel method of reacting sodium alginate with calcium chloride enabling continuous production of microencapsulated actives at less then 100 µm at very large volumes.
