Frutarom Launches Marine Bioactive Compounds Line at SupplySide East

Frutarom, USA, announces it will launch a new line of marine extracts at SupplySide East in New Jersey, April 27 - 29th, 2009. The new line stems from Frutarom's new business relationship in North America with Copalis, France, manufacturer of marine bioactive solutions for functional food, dietary supplement and nutricosmetic markets. The focus will be on three unique marine ingredients: Phoscalim®, a fish-derived source of calcium; Nutripeptin™, a marine peptide shown to reduce the glycemic effect of foods; and Collactive™, a marine source of collagen and elastin for “beauty from within”.

“We are very excited to provide these high-value, marine-based bioactive compounds for well-being,” says Laurent Leduc, VP USA Health Division of Frutarom, USA. “These research-supported sea ingredients offer optimum solutions to many of the top health issues our nation is facing.”

NutripeptinTM, a marine peptide for use in weight-loss products will be introduced for the first time at the upcoming SupplySide East show at Meadowlands, New Jersey. It can lower the glycemic impact of high-carbohydrate foods and help increase satiety. It is easily incorporated into powdered beverages and nutrition bars, and also can be used in capsule or tablet form to be taken before meals. It has a neutral flavor profile when added into finished products.

“Frutarom will feature Collactive™, a natural, anti-wrinkle ingredient, in a beverage to showcase how we combine extensive know-how in creating cutting-edge, tasty and healthy solutions with our nutraceutical and flavor ingredients,” explains Leduc. “Frutarom just released promising results from a clinical study showing that Collactive can significantly reduce wrinkles in women after 28 days.” Collactive is composed of marine collagen and elastin peptides in the same ratio found naturally in skin. When taken orally, collagen and elastin have shown a synergistic anti-wrinkle action, stimulating skin to lift and tone sagging areas and minimize lines and wrinkles while increasing skin moisture retention.

Phoscalim® is a fish-derived mineral extract that provides highly bioavailable source of calcium to promote optimal bone health. Phoscalim is different from other marine calcium sources in that it is from wild-caught fish. Phoscalim provides calcium and phosphorous that acts synergistically in formulas, as well as type II collagen, making it ideal for calcium supplements or formulations targeting bone and joint health.

Frutarom will be exhibiting at booth no. 1439
