DuPont Nutrition & Health will spotlight today’s leading health trends to illustrate the beneficial effects and consumer appeal of its recently expanded nutritional portfolio at VitaFoods Europe 2013.
All listed by New Nutrition Business in the top 10 trends for 2013, senior nutrition, digestive health, immune health and weight management will frame the DuPont offer of health-promoting ingredients for food, beverages and dietary supplements.
Presenting the new soya proteins
A fiber-protein bar targeting digestive health will be among the samples available to demonstrate the many application possibilities supported by DuPont. The bar will feature products from the range of flexible soya proteins that joined the portfolio last year when DuPont acquired full ownership of Solae.
Benefits for immune health and weight management
One such study established that dietary supplementation with HOWARU® Protect significantly reduced cold and flu symptoms in otherwise healthy, active adults. This supports previous documentation of the probiotic’s beneficial effect on immune health.
In two weight management studies, Litesse® polydextrose displayed the potential to reduce food intake and promote appetite control.
Matching everyday needs
“With our integration of the Danisco and Solae businesses, our customers have already started to experience the synergies that arise when ingredients from our nutritional portfolio are combined. The latest clinical studies confirm the potential health benefits our ingredients can provide,” says Craig Binetti , president, DuPont Nutrition & Health. “And with our enabling ingredients to provide the sensory appeal, shelf life and functional properties in the final consumer product, it is possible to produce healthy foods and supplements that match the needs of everyday life.”
The combined DuPont Nutrition & Health portfolio addresses consumer needs within digestive health, immune health, oral health, bone health, cardiovascular health, weight management, dairy alternatives, children’s nutrition, sports nutrition and healthy ageing nutrition.
