Customizing nutritional solutions to Asian market needs
21 Sep 2018 --- At Vitafooda Asia, Activ Inside highlighted their collaboration with Aqurate Ingredients from Malaysia which has been in place for two years. Benoit Lemaire of the company notes: “The problem with active ingredients is that the taste comes from polyphenols and it is not a taste that Asian people like to consume. So we have to find solutions and looked for a partner to reformulate the active ingredients in order to find a good taste. The first thing required is to have the good fruits and then to work on the sweetness of the formulation. We are checking with Aqurate the different applications, whether a shot or functional drink.” The company highlighted a product for the Malaysian market in a sachet form (Memo-X from CellLabs), based on grape and blueberry extract for memory enhancement.
Exploring the prebiotic potential of polyphenols
04 Jun 2018 --- Diana Food recently created a research chair to study the prebiotic role of polyphenols. “The health benefits of polyphenols are well understood. What is interesting is that only about 5 percent of the polyphenols that we absorb are metabolized by the body. We have been working with a research institute in Quebec, who have been pioneering the research into how the gut microbiota metabolizes the polyphenols. Based on this knowledge that we have gathered, we decided that we can use this to better understand what the role of polyphenols can be as prebiotics. We are going to look at different sources and it will be a great opportunity to scan new raw materials from both the Amazonian and Nordic regions of Canada,” says Stephanie Pretesacque.
