B&D Nutritional Ingredients Inc. announced it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Nutraberry LLC. Through this agreement, B&D will supply Nutraberry’s Meeker Red Raspberry Seed Powder and Extract to the U.S. dietary supplement, functional food and personal care markets.
Among the numerous plants that have medicinal properties, raspberries are particularly noteworthy because of their ellagitannin content. A great many scientific articles on the biological activity of the components of raspberries have been published. Ninety percent of the total ellagitannins is located within the seeds, which normally pass through the body intact and therefore do not allow the body to absorb the ellagitannins. “Nutraberry’s unique extraction process delivers a wholly natural condition for ellagitannins to be controlled,” said Bill Van Dyke, president of B&D Nutritional Ingredients. “We’re proud to be Nutraberry’s distribution partner and expect it will bring important new opportunities for customers looking to leverage the strengths of ellagitannins.”
“B&D’s is known for its ability to successfully launch new products into the market,” said David Wishnick, president of Nutraberry. “Their sales and marketing process relies on service, science and innovation. We’re honored to enter into a partnership with B&D and to provide its customers with the highest-quality products to help consumers live healthier lives.”
