Premier supplier of original active ingredients, Nexira delivers a broad portfolio of nutritional and functional ingredients. At the FI Europe, Nexira introduces three major innovations and presents new clinical results for Cacti-NeaTM

Crystal Pure, a new range of highly purified Acacia Gum by Nexira
Nexira, world leader in acacia gum, and its Food division (previously known as CNI) is launching during FIE Paris a new range of highly purified acacia gum that will provide better transparency with reduced turbidity which broadens the scope of applications for this natural soluble fiber. The unique attributes of this new acacia range was achieved through a proprietary process developed by the Nexira R&D team to protect the natural characteristics of the gum. This exceptional range of highly purified acacia gum will deliver enhanced properties for exceptional performance.

Oli Ola, Organic Olive Extract
Nexira is reinforcing its capabilities in the organic ingredients market by launching a new olive extract with a guaranteed constant high level of hydroxytyrosol, a phytonutrient with strong antioxidant properties. This antioxidant has been shown to aid in a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing low-density lipoprotein oxidation.
This organic ingredient meets the specifications in the positive report from EFSA (April 2011) which approved claims for protection of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidative damage and maintenance of normal blood high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels.  Using this new Olive extract will provide the opportunity to make a cardiovascular health claim, which is a significant marketing advantage for the nutraceutical industry.
This 100 % natural olive extract is produced form organic agriculture and is exclusive to Nexira Health (previously known as Bio Serae Laboratories). The new olive-based ingredient is the latest innovation developed by the Nexira R&D team and it will complement the current broad range of botanical extracts offered Nexira Health.

Fibregum™: The first and only acacia gum approved as a fiber source by Health Canada
Nexira is also demonstrating its leadership in regulatory support with the announcement of Fibergum™ status as the first and only range of acacia gum approved as a source of dietary fiber by Health Canada. In addition to regulatory leadership, Nexira is a global leader in sustainable sourcing and respect for the environment. Finally, Nexira offers superior technical support and assists customers in optimizing their formulations with precisely the correct grade of Fibergum™.

New clinical results for Cacti-Nea™
A second clinical study confirms Cacti-Nea™’s anti-water retention effect.
The open intra-individual study was conducted on 15 women with water retention problems. The aim of this study was to evaluate Cacti-Nea™’s effect at the dose of 2g/day during one week. Very positive results were highlighted, confirming the benefits of this innovative natural ingredient :
·               Cacti-Nea™ helps to significantly increase diuresis by 27% on women with BMI<25
·               Cacti-Nea™ helps to significantly decrease the sensation of swollen feet/ankles/calves
·               Cacti-Nea™ helps to significantly decrease the sensation of “heavy legs”

In addition, 87% of women were convinced by Cacti-Nea™’s efficiency by the end of the study, as revealed in a global satisfaction questionnaire the volunteers completed.
This second clinical study confirms Cacti-Nea™’s diuretic effect and shows that it can help refine the silhouette and provide relief from water retention side effects such as swollen legs and ankles. Cacti-Nea™ is a natural prickly pear fruit extract, developed by the Health Division of Nexira (previously Bio Serae Laboratories). It can easily be incorporated into dietary supplements or functional food and beverages.
Cacti-Nea™ is available in an Organic version, certified by Ecocert.
