In booth #765 at IFT 2007, LycoRed will showcase “BLT”, a great-tasting new concept for beverage fortification. This antioxidant fortification system exemplifies the company’s theme of “creating innovative nutrition”. BLT is a dispersible, all natural, ready to use formulation of beta-carotene, lutein, and tomato lycopene.
Developed in response to the industry trend favoring antioxidant-rich beverages, it has been added to “Summer Delight”, a fruit juice beverage, and “Tomato on the Go”, a savory beverage. The BLT formulation contains natural beta-carotene from Lyc-O-Beta, natural lutein from Lyc-O-Lutein and natural tomato lycopene plus other tomato phytonutrients from Lyc-O-Mato Red. The BLT formulation is highly soluble and designed specifically for nutritional beverages. Tomato on the Go is flavor-enhanced with CTC, a clear tomato concentrate from LycoRed. Both Summer Delight and Tomato on the Go beverages deliver important antioxidant health benefits as well as great taste.
LycoRed works closely with their customers to successfully develop innovative nutritional products. LycoRed's main expertise lies in the production, and formulation of natural carotenoids including lycopene, lutein, beta-carotene, phytoene and phytofluene, as well as natural colorants, premix and microencapsulated ingredients.
