Microsphere Technology Permeates Food, Cosmetics Industries

January 19, 2010: 03:14 AM EST
Most big companies in the food and cosmetics are either using or exploring microsphere technology to enhance foods, fragrances, etc., according to this Forbes article. Made of polymers, starches or waxes, the tiny hollow orbs can be packed with flavors, vitamins, cooling compounds, scents, and much more. Energy bar manufacturers, for example, are using microspheres to protect Vitamin C freshness, which can dissipate when exposed to air. The only possible brake on the technology is the trend toward unadulterated, natural foods. But consumers also seek healthier foods and microspheres have a lot to offer on that score, Forbes says.
