Nutravail Technologies is a world leader in the development of innovative delivery systems for the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries, as evidenced by its strong relationships with many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare companies.
With numerous patented delivery systems and manufacturing processes, Nutravail has the unique ability to deliver today’s functional and healthy ingredients in better tasting and more convenient formats, while enhancing potency and efficacy of other products with its patented encapsulation methods. Nutravail primarily serves as a contract manufacturer for various soft chew products. Nutravail also performs contract research for many pharmaceutical companies in the development of new soft chew and medicated chewing gum products.
Uncooked Soft Chews –a patented confectionery matrix that can be processed without introducing significant heat (less than 45ºC). This patented process gives Nutravail the unique ability to deliver high loads of functional ingredients in a great tasting, candy-like format.
Spun Matrix Flakes – an encapsulated powder produced without the use of solvents or water. Spun Matrix Flakes uniformly disperse the most difficult ingredients, enhancing functionality, while unlocking fresh, clean flavors.
Flash Shear Beads – a lipid encapsulation ideal for taste masking and timed release of active ingredients.
Medicated Gums – Nutravail is on the cutting-edge of product development in the medicated gum category. It holds patents on its own and jointly with other consumer health companies that allow for faster delivery of medicinal and other ingredients.
Company Background Nutravail began as Fuisz Technologies over 20 years ago as a company dedicated to research and development of new drug delivery systems. After being acquired by Biovail Corp. in 1999, the Company's name was changed to Nutravail Technologies and its focus was shifted to developing functional food and beverages and dietary supplements. It was from this effort that the Company developed its patented, uncooked soft chew process.
In 2006, a private group purchased the Company from Biovail and transformed it into a contract manufacturer of dietary supplements. Since 2006, the Company has experienced a dramatic increase in demand for soft chew supplements and it is constantly developing new products and increasing manufacturing capacity to meet that growing demand. The Company also continues to develop medicated gums and various ingredient encapsulations.
