27 Jul 2020 --- Tapping into the naturality trend amid the recent surging demand for immune support, Naturex, part of Givaudan, spoke to us about the hottest botanicals for this category. Timothée Olagne, Global Category Director of Nutritional Ingredients, explains how investing in environmental sustainability has become a core priority to the company. He also shares more details on how Naturex aims to expand into the oat-based beta-glucan segment.
09 Jan 2019 --- In November 2017, Naturex firmed up its presence in the natural nutrition market with the acquisition of Swedish Oat Fiber, a specialized manufacturer of oat dietary fibers, oils and proteins. Naturex, in turn now, has been acquired by Givaudan recently. Speaking to Nutritioninsight at HiE, Frankfurt 2018, Peo Crona said: “We only do oat-based products, such as oat beta-glucans, oat oil and oat flour. The sports nutrition market is one of the markets that the company is targeting where oat products can be mainly used as an instant powder for athletes or gym goers. When it comes to beta-glucans, oats have some excellent health claims. We are really going back to basics with these ingredients; they are clean label and very trendy among consumers.”
30 Jun 2018 --- Givaudan’s heritage in natural ingredients is rooted in a tradition of exploration, discovery and innovative thinking. Our holistic approach from nature to consumer experience is grounded in a profound understanding of sourcing, natural extraction and cooking techniques. All that, plus over 90% of our research dedicated to innovation in natural solutions, and you have a winning combination.
14 Jun 2018 --- There has been particularly strong recent development happening in the clean label mainstreaming of sports nutrition products. At Vitafoods Europe 2018, FrieslandCampina’s consumer research highlighted a need for clean ingredients as well as innovative flavor profiles. The results of a consumer study showed that 69 percent of sports nutrition consumers find all-natural ingredients to be appealing in these types of products. To address this demand, DMV has come up with native protein launches. “We are highlighting Nutri Whey native and that is some shakes, RTDs. What we highlight is how Nutri Whey native is a concept where we really try to target the millennials. We developed it together with Givaudan, where we looked at what flavor profile consumers are looking for,” says Ramon Mommersteeg at the company.
