DuPont Nutrition & Health to place probiotics at the heart of their presence at Vitafoods Europe 2015

Building on recent claim approvals in Switzerland, DuPont Nutrition & Health continues to work to strengthen the timely discussion of the health-benefits of probiotics. Visitors to Vitafoods will be able to experience firsthand how DuPont has been raising the bar with respect to robust probiotic research through high-quality trials and documentation.

'The high standards to which we conduct our ongoing probiotic research to demonstrate the efficacy of our strains is vital for reaching successful claims’, said Alvin Ibarra, Senior Scientist, DuPont Nutrition & Health . ‘This not only demonstrates the DuPont Nutrition & Health capability, but also helps to build understanding and trust generally in the probiotics marketplace'.

Finished formats in Dietary Supplements as well as Food & Beverage prototypes in three principle areas will highlight the company’s focus on ingredient solutions which address the needs of consumer segments all over the globe. At this year’s event DuPont will focus on the areas of:

Cardiovascular Health: solutions that promote the maintenance of healthy levels of cholesterol, help lower salt intake and improve blood circulation – for a reduction of CVD risks.

Sports Nutrition: health ingredients demonstrated for optimal sports performance, naturally optimized muscle health and strength, and for rapid energy sources.

Immune Health: clinically documented, demographic-focused solutions to help consumers maintain a healthy immune system that can deal with the challenges their bodies face every day whilst supporting general well-being.


Sharing the Science Behind

DuPont is once again participating as a member of the Vitafoods Europe Conference Executive Advisory Board (EAB), helping to set the standards of the most important scientific gathering specialized in dietary supplements in Europe.
