Products / Markets

Health ingredients

Our vitamins and carotenoids enable you to enhance your dietary supplements, functional drinks and health food products with attractive additional benefits. You can choose from a wide range of premium quality natural and nature-identical formulations that we can supply in industrial quantities with absolute reliability. For example, LycoVit® is our nature-identical red carotenoid: it can be used as a coloring in drinks and food products, but it is also a powerful antioxidant which protects human cells by counteracting the damaging effects of free oxygen radicals applicable for dietary supplement concepts.

Our health ingredients will ensure that your products don’t just taste great, but also support good health, boost energy and help to ensure health in old ages. For instance it has been shown in clinical trials, that our Tonalin® CLA conjugated linoleic acid has a positive effect on lipid metabolism, and as such delivers body shaping benefits for your customers.
