BEER SHEVA, ISRAEL – LycoRed has developed CapsuDar D3 CWD, a clear, soluble vitamin D3 suited for beverages, including flavored or functional waters. The ingredient dissolves instantly and stays stable across a range of pH levels. A microencapsulated, water-dispersible preparation protects the normally fat-soluble vitamin against light, oxidation and acids that normally inactivate vitamin D3 when added to beverage applications.
“In the past couple of years there has been a significant increase in consumer awareness and scientific research showing an array of benefits of vitamin D,” said Udi Alroy, vice-president of global marketing and sales for Israel-based LycoRed. “With this new development we provide a competitive edge to existing vitamin D3 products currently on the market.”
