INNOVIA EXPERTISE BENEFITS

BENEFITS OF INNOV’IA EXPERTISE

Spray drying consists of spraying a liquid or a suspension (slurry) in fine droplets inside a chamber in which a flow of hot air circulates. With this process, the water contained in the liquid instantly evaporates while preserving the functional properties of the active ingredient.

The powder obtained is either fine (50-100 µm) or micro-granulated (100-350 µm). The powder is recovered in the bottom part of the atomization chamber while the fine particles are drawn by air flow towards the cyclones, which will separate the air from the particles.

This process preserves the product functionalities and offers a competitive alternative to the freeze-drying process.

The INNOV’IA La Rochelle site is FSSC22000 certified for human food and FAMI’QS for animal feed.

The facility meets GMP requirements (part 2) for pharmaceutical products and is regularly inspected by the ANSM.

The production lines are approved for kosher, halal and organic (ecocert) products.
