10 branded ingredient innovations from single-ingredient specialists

Stop it with the commodities already. Up your finished product game with ingredients backed by science, IP dossiers, marketing and formulation help.

Branded ingredients are special, unique and uniquely qualified. Different from a run-of-the-mill commodity, branded ingredients stand apart because of distinctions from the initial discovery of the compounds in nature to proof-of-concept studies – cellular, in vitro, mechanistic studies, defining what is the responsible agent and activity. This evidence-based validation has a price premium, of course, but top shelf comes with a cost.

Branded-ingredient companies come in three stripes:

  • Companies that represent one single ingredient
  • Companies with a portfolio of different brands
  • Companies with a blend of brandeds and commodity ingredients.
