In recent years, sports nutrition product distribution has slowly shifted from health food stores and gyms to supermarkets as the preferred distribution channel. More and more people realize that these products are not only for athletes, but they are also suitable for health and wellness purposes. Although developing nations like the Asian countries are quickly increasing their use of sports nutrition products, the U.S. is still the number-one market for sports nutrition.
Fenchem has integrated its ingredients and solutions and launched a sports nutrition service platform to better serve U.S. customers. Fenchem’s sports nutrition platform is comprised of three parts: raw ingredients services, customized ingredients services and finished products solutions.
Fenchem provides comprehensive USP-grade raw ingredients for sports nutrition, such as amino acids for strength and recovery, like branched chain amino acids (BCAA), L-isoleucine, L-leucine and L-valine; plant proteins like pea protein and rice protein; body sculpting ingredients like L-carnitine; and joint care ingredients like Co-JointTM chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine and Hyamax® sodium hyaluronate.
To better meet customers’ requirements, Fenchem provides tailor-made ingredients like premixes, powders, granulars and microcapsules. Take BCAA, for instance, Fenchem supplies several forms such as powder, instant powder and granular, along with different ratios of these.
Fenchem also provides OEM service for finished products, like soft capsules, hard capsules and tablets, as well as formulation recommendation services.
