Is a small blister composed of a phospholipid sheath and an internal liquid medium. Vitamins, minerals, plant extracts or other nutrients can be placed inside them. This shape increases the stability and entry of nutrients inside the microcapsule into the intestinal cells.
Absorption of substances encapsulated in microcapsules is up to 6 times more efficient than the same substances contained in non-microcapsules. Better nutrient uptake is due to the size and shell of the microcapsules.
