The technology that unboiled the egg is being used to help improve people's capacity to absorb fish oil.

The discovery is the latest in a growing number of breakthroughs across the globe using the Vortex Fluidic Device (VFD).

Professor - Colin - Raston - Team - Flinders

Invented by Professor Colin Raston and his team at Flinders University in South Australia, the VFD has been hailed a game-changer for applications across the sciences due to its ability to develop a range of novel nano materials without the use of hash or toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process.

Applications have ranged from protein folding, graphene production, biofuel conversion, slicing carbon nanotubes and drug delivery.

Flinders - Institute - NanoScale - Science - Technology

Flinders Institute for NanoScale Science and Technology researcher Nikita Joseph said the most recent trial to enhance fish oil processing had opened new possibilities for the device.

"Using the Vortex Fluidic Device can encapsulate fish oil with a simpler process than is conventionally used," Joseph said.

Possibility - Particles - Method - People - Absorption

"There is a possibility to produce smaller particles through this method, which may enhance people's absorption of the fish oil.

"Through this processing, we aim to improve the n omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil. This is important in processing new formulations for the food industry with improved health benefits."

Researchers - VFD - Encapsulation - Process - Scientists

The researchers found that the VFD can simplify water-in-oil-in-water encapsulation into one process, allowing scientists to exercise control over the particle size.

They also found that by altering the rotational speed, tilt angle, concentrations and ratio of components, temperature and...
