Swiss supplier Frutarom has teamed with Spanish biotech firm AB-Biotics to sell and market an encapsulated form  of iron called AB-Fortis to the functional foods market.

"This agreement marks a significant milestone for AB-Biotics, since the functional food market is a priority for our company,”​ said Miquel Angel Bonachera, CO-CEO of AB-Biotics.

”Thanks to Frutarom Health we can bring AB-Fortis to this market with a top-positioned partner.”

Frutarom said the iron form could be incorporated into fat-rich matrices such as milk or yoghurt with minimal oxidation.

“We see a great potential for AB-Fortis in food fortification and supplementation in products such as dairy, beverages, infant nutrition or cereals, especially in Latin America and Asia Pacific but also in other regions such as Europe and the US where iron deficiency is well known among children and pregnant women,”​ said Valerie Barrois, functional food segment manager at Frutarom Health

“We look forward to this agreement hallmarking our two companies’ global success.”
