DuPont Nutrition & Health has been honored with the eagerly anticipated NutraIngredients Award: Finished-Product-of-the-Year, which was given to HOWARU® Cardio under the category of Heart & Brain.
Results from recent clinical trials have been exceptionally strong, which helped to promote HOWARU® Cardio to the NutraIngredients finalist list.
"We are delighted that HOWARU® Cardio, part of the DuPont™ Danisco® ingredients range, has been awarded this prestigious accolade," said Didier Carcano, marketing strategy leader, probiotics, DuPont Nutrition & Health. "Our probiotic has been able to significantly improve total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels after just 12 weeks. On the strength of this, we look forward to talking with our customers about how HOWARU® Cardio can be applied to their own brands to help consumers maintain their heart health."
HOWARU® Cardio, a new commercial product available globally for the Dietary Supplements & Consumer Health Care industry, embodies the new DuPont Nutrition & Health branding position entitled It’s What’s Inside. The position brings together the dynamic ingredients including knowledge, expertise and science which work together to deliver a full menu of innovative solutions for the food, beverage and dietary supplement industries.
