Lipidchem started the production of powdered Stearic Acid in 1998. This Stearic Acid Powder is used as an excipient for pharmaceutical products, functioning as a lubricant to prevent ingredients from clumping together and from sticking to the tablet punchers. By early 2000, there was a need to increase the plant capacity of the powdered Stearic Acid product. In the quest of expansion, the decision to make more grades of products were evaluated.
By June 2000, Lipidchem shifted to the present address. To enjoy economy of scale, Lipidchem installed a new powdering plant and 4 beading towers to make the beaded products from various fatty acids such as Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid and special Palm Waxes for the candle industries. With the new facilities installed, Lipidchem can toll manufacture various sizes of beads for the fatty acids, animal feed supplements and food emulsifiers industries.
Being one of the powder experts in the industry, Lipidchem then installed a new microencapsulation plant in 2018 to produce niche product such as Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) Powder for food supplements industry. This new plant is also capable in converting all oils into powder. Through consistent high standard of safety and quality, Lipidchem is committed to become a leading and innovative nutritional fat powder manufacturer. As the ‘one stop solution’ for MCT Powder provider, this product can go to different applications including but not limited to sports nutrition, functional food, and nutritional products.
