Omega-3 Micro Delivery Ballsfor Fortification via Food
Nuversys‘s products are based on an innovative proprietary Micro Delivery Balls (MDB) technology and they overcome the limitations of state-of-the-art use of Omega-3 as ingredient in food – bad smell, oxidation of Omega-3, deterioration of biological activity and as a result poor customer acceptance and short shelf life.
Nyversys has demonstrated proof of concept and is currently optimizing the product for stability and efficacy. The Omega-3 MDBs will then be used as raw materials in energy bars and other foods.
Nuverys‘s Micro Delivery Balls are double wall micro-capsules made of fats and food grade polymers that protect Omega-3 and other biologically active ingredients from oxidation and activity deterioration. MDBs enable safe delivery and targeted release of the ingredients in the human digestion system.
The process of creating MDBs, based on the proprietary “Removing Solvent” (RS) technology, is generic and applicable to numerous active compounds. Nuversys currently focuses on Omega-3 MDBs for its widely known efficacy and huge market potential.

The first application of Omega-3 MDBs is in energy bars, widely used as “healthy food”.
Nuversys cooperates with Barbary, a well known Israeli producer of energy bars, to develop energy bars with Omega-3 MDBs as ingredient. Nuversys is looking for cooperation with European partners to develop other energy bars.
Nuversys plans to develop a second application of Omega-3 in food, eventually a diary product.
