Evolva solves the supply chain issues of nature through a 21st century mix of biotechnology and fermentation. We develop, make and sell ingredients that provide significant health, wellness and nutrition benefits to people in their daily life, but whose supply chain issues have limited their use until now. Our flagship ingredients are stevia, nootkatone and resveratrol. To make our world sustainable requires nature and technology to work together as one, and our aim is to play a (small) part in achieving this transformation.

Resveratrol: A matter of healthy ageing
Resveratrol (see alsohttp://veriteresveratrol.com/) is a polyphenol found in plants, peanuts, grapes, and berries to name a few.
There is a significant and growing body of evidence that has shown that resveratrol can produce a positive impact on the systems that decline with age like heart, bone, and brain. To date, some 10,000 studies have been published on resveratrol, with nearly 200 clinical studies.
Evolva’s resveratrol is the only resveratrol produced entirely by fermentation using yeast. It is made using natural and sustainable feedstocks and has a stable, traceable and reliable supply chain. Evolva’s resveratrol marks a major step forward for the category, which has been dominated by resveratrol sourced from China from the extract of polygonum (a.k.a. Japanese Knotweed). Our closed-system fermentation process avoids the possibility of environmental contaminants, such as emodin and PAHs, and provides the desired consistency and purity (>98%).

02 Jul 2020 --- Evolva’s health ingredients segment has seen a considerable increase in growth and demand for its resveratrol products. With over 13,000 published studies examining its effects, resveratrol is known as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Clare Panchoo, Global Vice President Health Ingredients, elaborates on resveratrol’s immunity-boosting properties, the company’s new resveratrol product launch and in which regional markets functional beverages are surging. She also shares how a new financial investment is set to strengthen Evolva’s position in the health ingredients sector.
05 Dec 2018 --- Evolva presented its resveratrol ingredient, Veri-te, at this year’s HiE. Speaking to NutritionInsight, Sally Aaron, Senior Vice President, Health Ingredients and Marketing at Evolva, discussed the benefits of using resveratrol. “Bone health is such a key issue right now and people are looking for ingredients that can help them support that demand from a consumer product standpoint to help women as they age, and help women feel better about themselves,” explains Aaron. “Women’s health is, of course, a common topic of discussion, as is ‘beauty from within’ and we are seeing combinations of products that tap into both women’s health and bone health.”
11 Jun 2018 --- Evolva presented several new concepts utilizing resveratrol. “One of things that we are highlighting is that resveratrol pairs very well with chocolate. When you think about the market for women in particular, being able to get your daily serving of resveratrol in this form could be a great new idea. The other product that we are highlighting is melt in the mouth lemon sticks, which is a very refreshing product that you can simply tear open and pour into your mouth. We are also highlighting a cold water dispersible product based on Resveratrol CWD 90, which disperses and goes into the solution very quickly. It is about going beyond the tablets and capsules,” says Sally Aaron at the company.
06 Jun 2017 --- Evolva have launched Veri-te, the brand for high-purity, sustainably produced resveratrol.
