Collagen supplement combines effective ingredients
NeoCell Corp's Collagen + C Pomegranate Liquid supplement combines the antioxidant power of pomegranate and green tea, the healing properties of collagen and vitamin C, and the absorption benefits of ionic minerals. The combination helps combat the signs of ageing evident in the deterioration of bones, joints and connective tissues; insufficient elasticity of the skin; and diminished cardiovascular health. The collagen types I and III in liquid Collagen + C support collagen production in tendons, ligaments, hair, skin and nails, while the ellagic acid (ellagitannins) of pomegranate and the polyphenols of green tea protect the body against LDL oxidation and fight free radicals. The supplement is sweetened with organic agave nectar, providing a lower glycaemic index than standard corn syrup or sugar sweeteners. The ionic minerals have been shown to aid in nutrient absorption and mineral balance in the body, while ionic calcium complements the collagen in supporting bone health, NeoCell says.

Organic CO2-dried 100 per cent grass-juice powders
Synergy Production Laboratories in Utah has developed a line of certified organic and kosher cereal grass-juice powders under the Synergized brand name. All products are dried using a proprietary CO2-drying method that offers a comparable, but economic alternative to freeze-drying. Harvested at their optimal stage of growth, the grasses are immediately juiced and then dried at low temperatures. Because the product is not exposed to oxygen or heat, the resultant powders are enzymatically active, retain their nutritional potency, and contain levels of chlorophyll and enzymes that are much higher than average. The range includes wheat, kamut, oat, alfalfa and barley grass-juice powders. Soluble in liquid, the powders can be used for powdered drink mixes or smoothies, tablets or capsules, and bar applications.

DSM Food Specialties has launched Accelerzyme CPG, a pure and label-friendly cheese-ripening enzyme. Accelerzyme CPG significantly reduces cheese maturation time and eliminates bitter peptides, the company reports. The carboxy-peptidase activity of Accelerzyme CPG accelerates cheese flavour by releasing C-terminal amino acids. Accelerzyme CPG's activity remains low during the early stages of cheese-making, rising once the pH level in the cheese has been reduced by culture activity. Accelerzyme CPG is thermo-labile and dormant during standard pasteurisation, ensuring problem-free whey processing. Accelerzyme CPG is both kosher and halal-approved.

Soluble fibre 20-times sweeter than sugar
BeFlora Plus 20x is a new addition to Triarco's BeFlora's line. As the name and number indicate, this soluble fibre product is 20-times sweeter than sugar. BeFlora Plus 20x's timing is related to product shortage and price hikes affecting sucralose customers. This new version of BeFlora is widely used with sucralose to lessen the sweetening cost per serving and the dependence on sucralose. Customers often blend BeFlora Plus 20x with sucralose in a 25-75 per cent ratio to lower costs by almost 24 per cent, Triarco says. BeFlora has also attained self-affirmed GRAS status.

High protein at lower cost
Nuvex Ingredients' new high-protein crisp contains 60 per cent protein at half the cost of traditional soy protein crisps. The Super Saver 60 formula combines soy and wheat proteins. Wheat gluten is a lower-cost source of protein, but the industry has been challenged, trying to tame the natural hardness of wheat gluten to make it palatable. With 60 per cent protein, Super Saver 60 is well-suited for nutritional bars, snacks and cereal clusters, the company reports, without compromising taste.

PL Thomas' policosanol is now kosher certified. Extracted from sugar-cane wax — the same raw material source used for various clinical studies — policosanol is used in cardiovascular health and cholesterol-support applications. It is a mixture of higher primary aliphatic alcohols whose main component is octacosanol. The product is manufactured by a unique process known as molecular distillation. PLT's policosanol provides several advantages to formulators and manufacturers of nutritional supplements, the company says. As a result PLT reports it is able to supply policosanol that is not in violation of existing US patents.
