São Paulo, Brazil, 11, February, 2008 – From gut/digestive health to stress reduction and sleep disorders, consumers worldwide are seeking innovative functional foods and beverages to help address these health conditions. Fortitech South America helps manufacturers meet this demand by showcasing the latest trends and food fortification initiatives at Food Ingredients South America (FISA) 2008 (stand # 530). A variety of samples will be on hand to demonstrate Fortitech's capabilities as the premiere provider of custom blended nutrient premixes to the food and beverage industries.
"Consumer demand for foods that deliver specific health benefits continues with unprecedented growth,” said Juarez Fairon Rech, director general of Fortitech South America. "In order for a manufacturer to meet this demand, they need a partner that can work with them to develop nutrient formulations that not only deliver specific health benefits, but doesn't alter the taste, texture or appearance of the end product. Fortitech's capabilities in this area can help a manufacturer develop a product that will deliver successful sales results.”
Fortitech has the ability to fortify virtually any product and has developed over 20,000 custom nutrient premixes. The company's global network of affiliates can source over 1,200 nutrients, and accompanied with unparalleled problem solving expertise, has helped manufacturers introduce thousands of products that offer health and wellness benefits to the global marketplace.
