Vitae Naturals is a Spanish company established in 2001 with a strong international focus, which produces natural ingredients with the highest quality and purity criteria to enhance people’s life and create value to their company and customers, using raw materials and processes which help to maintain the environment.
Since its opening, Vitae Naturals has become the 1st European manufacturer of naturally-sourced Vitamin E -Vitapherole® - with non GMO IP certification, and nowadays it is one of the main manufacturers of phytosterols ester worldwide –Vitasterol®S-80 esterified-.
Phytosterols are one the first products that obtained an approval of disease risk reduction health claim. The claim of lowering cholesterol and the risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease is well accepted by consumers, since elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) blood cholesterol is a leading cause of cardiovascular health problems.
In addition, natural vitamin E has recently got the following health claim: “Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress”. Having these qualified health claims makes the difference for Vitae’s functional ingredients and benefits Vitae’s customers which will succeed launching finished products enriched with phytosterols or phytosterols esters (Vitasterol®) or natural vitamin E (Vitapherole®). Apart from our non GMO IP soya Vitamin E, we also manufacture Vitamin E from sunflower origin in different concentrations.
A new state-of-the-art microencapsulation facility, based on spray drying technology, began its activities in 2015. We offer microencapsulated phytosterols and tocopherols produced entirely on our premises as well as contract manufacturing services of vitamins, minerals and omega 3. This was a great challenge, investing a great deal of our time and effort, and after years of outsourcing this process.
Our range of water dispersible products: Vitasterol® S-80 WDP (90%) –mixed phytosterols; Vitapherole® TP-350 WD –mixed tocopherols; Vitapherole® EP-500 WD –alpha tocopherol; Vitapherole® EP-700 WD –alpha tocopherol and Vitapherole® EP-500 acetate WD –alpha tocopheryl acetate.
