Vana®-Cappa B01 is a product that contains encapsulated pressurized gas. In instant mousse, the application in which Vana®-Cappa B01 is used as ingredient, the product makes sure that no mixers are needed to beat up the mousse, but that by simply stirring the mousse gets the right structure.
In the functional products category, the launching customer for the Vana®-Cappa B01 also was nominated and ended up in the top five. The ingredient is introduced in a protein-rich mousse intended for athletes.
