Consumer awareness for the numerous, well-documented health benefits of vitamin D has never been so high. The health crisis has further highlighted the importance of vitamin D in supporting a strong immune system. To help our customers meet the growing demand for vitamin D, we offer high potency and mini-beadlet vitamin D for use in dietary supplements and fortification of foods and beverages.
Divi’s high potency vitamin D3 for demanding applications
Our high potency vitamin D3 – Vitamin D3 500 SD – is a spray-dried powder providing 500,000 IU per g. Spray-drying is a gentle process that preserves both the integrity and the nutritional value of the product. During this process, vitamin D3 is micronized into very small particles, leading to an easy-to-handle powder. The final product exhibits excellent flowability and does not generate any dust during use. Our technology ensures constant particle size distribution and an optimized concentration, resulting in excellent content uniformity in applications such as premixes. Vitamin D3 500 SD benefits from a reliable supply thanks to stable, scalable production at a state-of-the-art plant in Germany.
Divi’s Vitamin D3 500 SD shows excellent performance in a variety of applications. Thanks to its high potency, only small amounts are sufficient to strengthen end products, resulting for example in smaller tablets and capsules. In addition, since Vitamin D3 500 SD is very stable in applications, there is no need to add high overdosage to guarantee the label claim. Vitamin D3 500 SD shows good tableting performance and is therefore suitable for direct compression of chewable and coated tablets. It can also be used to fortify foods and drinks, as it is fully dispersible in water, fruit juices, milk and other liquids.
Divi’s Mini-Beads for outstanding stability combined with content uniformity
Our range includes also vitamin D2 and D3 mini beadlets. Divi’s exclusive micro-encapsulation process provides excellent stability and grants outstanding uniformity due to the fine particle size of the mini beadlets, about 30% finer than our regular beadlets. Our Mini-Beads cutting-edge technology generates products which are designed for application in fine powders where uniformity is a key performance parameter.
Vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 Mini-Beads are suitable for a variety of applications. Besides hard-gelatin capsules and tablets, they can also be used to fortify foods and drinks, as they are fully dispersible in liquids such as water, fruit juices and milk.
