The company says it will be entering two new health areas – digestive health and skin and beauty and will also unveil a range of new functional food applications for its Collavant n2 native (undenatured) type II collagen ingredient for joint health.
Visitors to Vitafood's New Product Zone will be able to explore two of Bioiberica’s newest ingredients, launching at the event.
Hyaluronic acid has been shown to provide benefits that span several health areas – from mobility to skin and beauty. For companies formulating with hyaluronic acid, Bioiberica will present the science behind its patented hyaluronic acid matrix ingredient, showcasing how its unique composition of three naturally-occurring components can help brands to leverage the growing opportunities for innovation in an increasingly busy marketplace. Attendees can join Bioiberica’s experts at the New Ingredients Theatre on Wednesday 11 May at 11.30am CET to learn more.
The company says that research has shown that more than one-third of consumers want to improve their joint health and that people of all ages are taking a proactive approach to their mobility. They believe that demand for functional foods with joint health-boosting ingredients is growing at a fast pace. In response to the demand, Bioiberica will unveil a new functional food offering for its popular Collavant n2 native type II collagen. Visitors to the Vitafoods Tasting Bar and Bioiberica stand will have the chance to sample mango flavoured Collavant n2 collagen gummies while exploring the latest opportunities.
“There’s never been a more exciting time to be working in the health and nutrition industry. Growing consumer health-consciousness is catapulting innovative ingredients and new product formats into the spotlight, while trends and consumer needs continue to evolve at high speed. For manufacturers, there’s a lot to keep up with,” says Jaume Reguant, Healthcare Director at Bioiberica.
“That’s why, last year, we launched a new brand identity for our branded ingredients portfolio – to provide a stronger foundation with greater potential to build and expand into new areas - not just for Bioiberica, but our partners, too. And now, we’re ready to make our move into the digestive health and skin and beauty markets. Driven by a desire to help our customers grow their business with truly innovative products, we’re very excited to finally showcase these new solutions at Vitafoods.”
