Development of a softab nutraceutical formulation
Softab Technologies is a fast-growing company in Windsor, Ontario that is developing new formulations and methods to provide nutraceuticals: vitamins, natural extracts, and minerals in a revolutionary new form of chewable and dissolvable gel. They are working with a research team in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Windsor to refine the formulation and make it flexible for utilizing a number of different ingredients so that it can be customized and tailored to specific ingredients. The partnership involves a combination of analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, chemical engineering, and toxicology and will provide unmatched training opportunities as the MITACS interns will be working directly with both the company leadership and a team of dynamic young faculty. Softab Technologies is positioned to be a leading exporter of these products in the future and their growth will economically benefit Windsor-Essex by creating new technology-intensive jobs.
