Fortitech will showcase the company’s ability to fortify any product application with any nutrient, anywhere in the world during FIC 2011 (stand 1F02/1G01). As consumers worldwide continue to drive the market for fortified functional foods and beverages to maintain their overall health and wellness, countless opportunities exist for manufacturers. By engaging Fortitech to aid in their product development formulation needs, manufacturers save on labor, cost and testing, while creating products that capture the attention of these consumers.
With the ability to source over 1,400 ingredients, Fortitech premixes can integrate a comprehensive selection of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleotides and nutraceuticals. Applications that utilize our premixes include baby formulas, cereals, bars, dairy products, nutrition and sports drinks, juices, snacks, waters, candies and supplements, just to name a few. All premixes are certified with the Fortitech Quality Standard Seal, which reaffirms the company’s values of leadership, integrity and certification, and ensures that all of our premixes meet or in many cases, exceed industry standards for food safety, traceability and more.
Product examples that will be featured during FIC which demonstrate the company’s innovative approach to formulation include a Micronutrient Powder (MNP), vitamin fortified water, a snack mix that can aid in mental focus and an all-in-one beverage premix targeting weight management. The beverage is an all-in-one, market ready stick pack, and in addition to the nutrients, contains flavor, color, stabilizers and a sweetener. Attendees will see that Fortitech’s formulation expertise means there is no impact on the final product’s taste, mouth feel, texture or stability.
In addition to working with food and beverage manufacturers throughout the world, Fortitech has taken a proactive stance to dramatically decrease the number of people affected by micronutrient malnutrition through the company’s business unit, the World Initiative for Nutrition (WIN). WIN’s focus is to work with non-governmental organizations, governmental and international agencies aiming to improve nutrition. With on-demand support from Fortitech’s six facilities worldwide, WIN delivers nutritional solutions that are practical, effective and quality assured.
Fortitech also supplies UNICEF and the World Food Program with high quality micronutrient premixes for the fortified cereal blended food distributed through their programs.
