Glanbia Nutritionals, the leading ingredient innovator and formulation expert, is highlighting its ongoing innovation and continuously growing range of food and beverage ingredients at this year’s IFT show in Chicago. Focusing on functionality, advanced nutrition, and specialty ingredients, a variety of great tasting prototypes will be available at booth 1029 to demonstrate Glanbia Nutritionals’ leadership in its markets.

Visitors to Glanbia Nutritionals’ stand will be able to sample a Tropical Fruit Smoothie highlighting Chromax® and VitaCholine™, ingredients which may help increase cognitive function. The smoothie also features BevGrad® XtraThick flaxseed specifically designed to enhance the body of a beverage while delivering omega-3s and other nutrition benefits to beverage applications.

Further highlighting its beverage formulation expertise, Glanbia Nutritionals will also showcase Fatigue Fighter Energy Shots fortified with energy-boosting PepForm® Fatigue Fighter peptides. The inclusion of BevGrad® Chia provides a further natural form of energy, while CarniPure™ carnitine supports sustained energy. Both of the beverages being showcased at IFT can be manufactured at Glanbia’s recent acquisition, Aseptic Solutions USA.

Glanbia Nutritionals will demonstrate some of its bakery ingredient solutions in delicious and playful Cake Pops. The cake pops will feature GanedenBC30®, a heat-stable probiotic aimed at digestive health and immunity. They will also feature OptiSol® 3000, a newly introduced stable cost management egg replacer for bakery products. Plus, for additional protein fortification, the cake pops will be coated with a high protein coating.   

Visitors looking for a new and convenient way to consumer protein can sample Glanbia’s Protein Bites. The bites are made with a high-protein coating and a center fortified with Setria® glutathione that aims to protect against toxins and oxidative stress. The Protein Bites will appear in various flavors to appeal to the latest consumer trends for protein, great taste and bite size convenience on the go.

Continuing the healthy indulgence theme, Glanbia Nutritionals is also presenting gluten free, high omega-3 peanut butter and jelly flaxbread sandwiches to showcase the omega-3 benefits of its fine milled flaxseed in bread, the powerful antioxidant pTeroPure® pterostilbene for a functional preservative and overall health in the fruit spread, and BevGrad flaxseed for omega-3s in the peanut butter.
