Svetol®, the top-selling slimming ingredient in the U.S., is taking center stage on the Naturex stand at this week’s Vitafoods Europe exhibition.
Developed from decaffeinated green coffee bean extract, Svetol is clinically proven to inhibit glucose-6-phosphatase and increase the rate of fat release from the adipose tissue—a unique mechanism that results in highly effective weight management. The ingredient is produced using Naturex’s proprietary extraction process, which ensures a unique and specific profile of active molecules, in particular chlorogenic acids.
Svetol® has grown to become a phenomenon in North America. It is the number-one slimming ingredient in the U.S., and is now used in 100 cobranded products across the U.S. and Canada. It has a Facebook page of its own with more than 2,700 “likes” and boasts 1,400+ followers on Twitter
Antoine Dauby, Naturex marketing director, said: “Svetol is a real success story for Naturex. Even though it is an ingredient, it has managed to gain a very high level of recognition among consumers across North America. We’re confident Svetol presents a huge opportunity for companies in Europe, too, and we’re delighted to be highlighting its benefits and potential at Vitafoods.”
Vitafoods Europe is taking place at Palexpo in Geneva from May 14 to 16. Naturex is exhibiting on Stand 17035. Also at the show, Naturex is launching Europe’s first clinically proven—and proanthocyanidin (PAC) standardized—organic cranberry powder targeting urinary tract health.
New Pacran® Organic is an extension to the existing range of Pacran ingredients, which are unique full-spectrum whole cranberry powders that are not based only on certain active extracts, such as PACs. Independent science demonstrates that full spectrum cranberry is more effective in helping to prevent UTIs.
Organic dietary supplements are only a small part of the overall market, but Naturex believes this is because there has been a lack of investment in gold-standard clinical research involving organic ingredients. With strong scientific substantiation behind it, Pacran Organic will enable companies to tap into this opportunity.
In addition, Naturex is introducing visitors to Vitafoods Europe to a new range of drinkable dietary supplement concepts that offer great taste, naturalness and efficacy, as well as the potential for strong branding and communication.
The four concepts are called Sharpen Your Mind, Coach Your Body, Balance Your Life and Boost Your Vitality and feature a selection of active ingredients that have been the subject of EFSA-approved claims under the Health Claims Regulation and are now on the EU’s Article 13.1 list of 222 approved general function claims. These active ingredients are delivered by Naturex’s NAT activ™ range of botanical extracts, which contain standardized levels of natural vitamins and minerals.
