Founded in 1895, Nexira is a global leader in natural ingredients and botanical extracts for food, nutrition, and dietary supplements.

Nexira first built its reputation as the world leader in acacia gum and now manufactures a wide range of natural ingredients with proven health benefits, such as the flagship brand Exocyan™, a cranberry extract standardized in polyphenols and proanthocyanidins (PACs) from 1 to 90% and recognized for its benefits in preventing urinary tract infections.
