Do you know who acquired Emergen-C? Why vitamin D is so important for immune health? Or from which kind of seaweed fucoidan is extracted?

As part of our special edition on immune support we thought we'd test your knowledge to find out how well you know the science, history, and market for immune support products.

We’re also hosting the NutraIngredients-USA Trend in the Immune Health Sector Forum​ on June 30, which will bring together experts from brands, academia and regulatory to answer the most important questions for brand owners in this area, including:

Which ingredients are driving this growth? How do they work and how strong is the science? What claims can be made? Are supplements or functional foods and beverages driving this growth? What do consumers understand? And what’s next for immune support in the US?

Speakers include: Prof. Philip Calder, PhD, Professor of Nutritional Immunology, University of Southampton; Refaat Hegazi, MD, PhD, Medical Director, Abbott Nutrition; Susan Kleiner PhD, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Vynna, LLC; and Ivan Wasserman, Partner, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP.

In preparation for that event, click below to get started on the quiz:
