Specialists in microencapsulation for over 20 years

SILA is specialized in microencapsulation industrial processes, in animal and human nutrition. Through an intensive R & D lab activity, it meets the needs of most heterogeneous market with technologically advanced solutions, in order to increase the effectiveness of the active ingredient, protecting and stabilizing it in a specific coating with slow intestinal release.

A look at the origins

A look at the future

Passion for innovation

SILA was founded in 1998 with its first factory dedicated to animal feed and in 2012 it inaugurates a new one to allow further development in the field of animal nutrition and to diversify the production in the sector of human nutrition and pharma. The increase in competitiveness doesn’t leave SILA insensitive to environmental issues, in fact, in 2016 it launches its own green energy factory, "Robinia" which provides for the 25%, renewable power for its industrial production.

The future of SILA is in searching for new microencapsulation technologies, in the development of close working relationships with universities and multinational partners such as BASF, with whom it worked exclusively for the product Lutrell Pure, based on linoleic acid conjugated (CLA). The look of SILA is aimed at sustainable industrial development with the purpose of increasing the proportion of energy from renewable sources for its production.

The intense laboratory activities is among the most exciting and challenging daily bets of our company. New microencapsulation technology, for new active ingredients in collaboration with new partners stimulate business creativity by ensuring the quality of the final product with an industrial profile designed to minimize negative environmental impacts.

Manufacturing plants

SILA has three production sites, two for the Veterinary industry and one for the Human Food industry.
Every day the QA manager verifies the workplace, through a careful control of raw materials, finished products and plants.

Trademarks and patents

SILA invests on innovation and right with this policy each day develops solutions protected by patents that add value to the products. Our international patent registrations safeguard protection processes, through the microencapsulation of the following active principles, known in literature for their instability and inability in nature to penetrate effectively at the cellular level:

NICOTINIC ACID

Europe

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3 or vitamin PP, is a substance that plays very important functions in the human and animal metabolism. In fact, it is the precursor of coenzyme involved in redox reactions by which the body draws energy for its activities. SILA has patented NO FLASHING niacin, able to slowly release in the organism, without side effects.

CLA

Europe & PCT extension

With the collective term CLA is intended to describe a mixture of conjugated dienoic isomers, derived from linoleic acid, very unstable and chemically reactive in nature. The patented stabilization and slow release technology of CLA, designed by our research and development laboratory, makes it protagonist in numerous physiological and metabolic functions in animal and human nutrition.

Sodium Butyrate

Europe & PCT extension

The sodium salt of butyric acid, despite its high tendency to dissociate, presents interesting biological effects on the digestive system, stimulating the growth of the intestinal villi and modifying the development of gastro-enteric micro-organisms in favor of lactic acid bacteria. The patented formulation in microcapsules with LSC technology barrier effect, allows the sodium butyrate to reach the colon/rectum.
