Abstract

This work aims to investigate the feasibility of fluidised beds for seed agglomeration of rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) extract compositions, attempting to form a product with adequate pharmacotechnical and physicochemical properties. Lipid- and carbohydrate-based compositions with different viscosities were top sprayed onto fluidised beds of cassava flour or sugar pellets as seed particles. The compositions used were also spray-dried to compare the physicochemical properties of the product generated by the two processes. The viscosity of the feed formulations influenced the efficiency of the coating/agglomeration and the agglomeration percentage of the granules. Fluidised bed granules exhibited higher efficiency of coating/agglomeration, higher retention of bioactive compounds and better flow properties than the powder obtained by spray drying.
