Project Summary

Lupos Biotechnology approached Fanshawe to help optimize their cannabis emulsion through homogenization techniques. With Fanshawe’s expertise, a new formulation was developed that met stability requirements under various conditions.

The Challenge

Lupos needed to optimize their cannabis emulsion utilizing expertise, equipment, and laboratory techniques available in the Centre for Advanced Research and Innovation in Biotechnology (CARIB) at Fanshawe College.

The Solution

A team of Fanshawe faculty researchers

  • Produced a review of food grade ingredients and best industry applicable homogenization techniques 
  • Identified new food grade ingredients, that minimize odour, separation, and colour/texture of the company’s water-in-oil (Cannabis) emulsion
  • Developed a new formulation that is stable under various industry applicable conditions (e.g., temperature)
