Progel specializes in producing alginate microgels on an industrial scale.
Progel is a spin-out company of The University of Queensland. It was formed in 2009 to commercialise the alginate encapsulation method developed by Professor Bhesh Bhandari, a globally recognized expert in drying technology, dairy research and 3D printing based at the School of Agriculture and Food Sciences. Compared to established methods, the Progel technology represents a step up in terms of simplicity, scalability, ease of use and small particle size. The advantages of the Progel microgel has been proven in nutraceutical, food and pharmaceutical products.
Progel is currently based at The University of Queensland and has access to top class research facilities including microbiology, sensory and formulation laboratories. We are assisted by expert chemists, food technologist and researchers. Our highly trained technical staffs have extensive experiences in probiotics research, food R&D and project management.
