Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Liposome Encapsulation of Vitamins to Enhance Storage Properties of Space-Bound Food, Phase I
InnoSense LLC (ISL) proposes to develop a nanoparticle encapsulation systems for water- and fat-soluble vitamins (VitaCap™) to increase shelf life up to five years for long duration space missions. This encapsulation technology would preserve/enhance the nutrient content of space foods by increasing the amount of bio-active vitamins delivered into the body. More »
