To accommodate the fast growth of the functional food and beverage market, Fenchem has been focusing on the development of functional ingredients to be applied in food products, such as natural antioxidants, In-fibre™ inulin and Liveflax&ttrade; flax lignan. Natural antioxidants include TOCOVET® natural vitamin E succinate, G-Tea™ green tea extract, Grapurit™ grape seed extract and Pomgreat&trade pomegranate extract. These natural antioxidants are ideal substitutes for artificial antioxidants due to health concerns over their use in foods and beverages. In-fibre™ is a dietary fibre targeting digestive health ideally suited for applications in dairy, bakery, beverages and cereals. Liveflax™ is a water soluble phytoestrogen targeting women's health as an alternative to soy isoflavones.
