Fortitech Europe Technical Director to Speak at Vitafoods 2010
Copenhagen, Denmark, 15 February, 2010 – As more consumers look to fortified functional foods and beverages to maintain their overall health and wellness, prevent the occurrence of specific health conditions or manage an existing health condition, growth within these categories will continue at an unprecedented rate. Fortitech is uniquely positioned as the only global company solely dedicated to the development and creation of custom nutrient premixes – over 30,000 to date – for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. During Vitafoods 2010, Johnny Thylin, Ph.D., Technical Director for Fortitech Europe ApS, will be presenting a technical seminar on the fortification challenges of beverages aimed at children’s health concerns. There are many parameters and factors to consider when developing a custom nutrient premix that will aid in maintaining overall health, preventing a specific health condition or targeting a certain demographic. Dr. Thylin’s presentation will address these issues and other challenges associated with developing a dynamic premix blend.
