The Incap patented Dispensing Closure Technology was developed to keep vitamins, liquid-sensitive and other essential ingredients protected and separated from water until it’s time to drink. This breakthrough dispensing closure is hermetic (airtight) sealed, ensuring freshness and delivering maximum vitamin potency.
The driving force behind the Incap dispensing closure technology is the fact that vitamins deteriorate in water, causing premixed vitamin drinks to lose their strength over time. The supplemental information printed on most premixed vitamin drinks is based on the ingredients at the time of bottling, not the time of consumption.
“Consumers need to know that after just 60 days on a shelf, premixed drinks can have only 40 to 60 percent of their vitamins remaining.
Scientific studies have clearly demonstrated that vitamins are not stable in beverage products and that the longer they stay in contact with liquid, the weaker they become. Such sensitive substances begin to degrade and lose potency almost immediately when mixed with the liquid at the time of packaging. In addition, shelf life and exposure to light promote further loss of their potency creating a rapid decrease in their original value.
This new and exciting technology is the biggest breakthrough in packaging dispensing closure mechanisms and will revolutionize what can be delivered as a product in the future.
For example the next generation of health and wellness beverages that will modernize the way the industry manufactures nutritional beverage supplements throughout the world in PET containers by storing time-and-liquid-sensitive vitamin supplements that can now be held in a dry state avoiding contact with the beverage until it is activated; as it now makes it possible to release vitamins into the beverage allowing for fun user experience and the freshest, most powerful way possible for consumers to enjoy immune-boosting supplements in an effervescent beverage which will be the future of beverages.
As the Incap is activated by twisting and pushing down the cap, the consumer can actually see the ingredients dispensing into the product stored in the main container. This innovative, low-cost functional device brings new solutions and differentiation in the way of packaging. It can be used in many different applications including Beverages, Food, Personal Care, Pharmaceutical, and Chemical. Now through this technological innovation, many new products will be born or existing ones will be reinvented.
It’s intuitive and easy to use — simply twist and push down, and shake to freshly infuse vitamins and nutrients into the water.
