DuPont Nutrition & Health Puts New Alginate on Pharma Agenda

DuPont Nutrition & Health has added an efficient pharmaceutical excipient to the portfolio of ingredients for CPhI Worldwide 2014, in Paris this October. Visit us in hall 5, stand no. 5C89.

Alginate Pharma Grade is the first in a new series of alginate-based excipients developed to ensure the active ingredients in medicinal tablets reach their biological target intact and are released on time. In the pharma portfolio you will find both excipients as well as actives.

Safety Certified
Production is based at the DuPont plant in Landerneau, France, where the French National Authority for Medicines and Health Products Safety has approved the dedicated production line.

“We have documented the Alginate Pharma Grade in a series of trials and expect to launch additional pharma-grade alginates for specific applications in the near future. Samples are available for functionality testing,” says Peter Janetzky, sales manager, Pharma & Industrials, DuPont Nutrition & Health.
Immune health highlights

For the dietary supplement sector, DuPont will present the complete DuPont™ Danisco® range of ingredients and ready-to-market concepts.

Highlights include HOWARU® Protect Kids and HOWARU® Protect Adults, containing selected strains of premium probiotics shown in several clinical studies  to enhance the body’s natural defenses, helping children and adults to reduce the impact of cold and flu incidents .

Support for digestive health
Antibiotic treatment, travel, a poor diet and a hectic lifestyle are just some of the stresses that the gastrointestinal tract may encounter on a daily basis. HOWARU® Restore is a premium probiotic ingredient that can help maintain digestive health during episodes of gut stress, and which has been clinically demonstrated in studies to help reduce the incidence and duration of the gastrointestinal side effects associated with antibiotic therapy.

OsmoAid™ Lactitol is an osmotic laxative that provides gentle relief for the many adults who suffer from constipation – a solution with few side effects and excellent palatability.

Differentiating value
“Our DuPont™ Danisco® range delivers clinically documented, health-enhancing effects that add differentiating value to dietary supplements for immune and digestive health. We look forward to presenting these opportunities to visitors at CPhI Worldwide 2014,” says Valerie Delahaye, sales director, Dietary Supplements & Pharma, Europe, Asia Pacific, China, DuPont Nutrition & Health.
