Aquateric® N100

A delayed release coating solution for nutraceuticals


Aquateric® N100, an alginate-based coating solution, helps to protect nutraceutical ingredients from stomach acid and improve consumers’ sensory experience. The easy-to-use formulation provides an efficient and simplified coating process, helping you to reduce cost, while its versatility allows to coat on wide range of dosage form: from gelatin and vegetarian hard capsules to soft capsules and compressed tablets.

Less Time. Less Cost. More Performance.

Aquateric® N100 delivers maximum functionality for natural dietary supplements while simplifying the manufacturing process. The formula is ready to use, meaning it requires less preparation time, offers easy coating without clogging spray guns and elimination of coating pan build-up.

The Secret is in the Seaweed

The ‘clean-label’ and non-GMO Aquateric® N100 utilizes the strength and flexibility of natural resources that can only be found under the sea: brown seaweed. The alginate technology works by keeping the dosage intact through the digestive process, allowing the nutritional ingredients to be released at the higher pH of the intestines. This reduces unpleasant flavors and odors, allowing for an improved consumer experience, while protecting the product against the stomach’s acidic environment.

Aquateric® N100 also functions synergistically with another popular DuPont functional ingredient, SeaGel®, optimizing enteric coating applications when the two are combined.
