Ingredient innovator and formulation expert Glanbia Nutritionals is showcasing trend-relevant custom micronutrient premixes, specialty ingredients and high performance nutritional and functional ingredients at this year’s SupplySide West show in Las Vegas. During the show, Glanbia Nutritionals will present a range of nutritional food and beverage prototypes, focusing on two growing market sectors: nutritional beverages and better-for-you snacking.
Visitors to Glanbia Nutritionals’ stand will be able to sample a High Acid Ginger Pear Protein Beverage. Formulated with Glanbia Nutritionals’ BevWise™ A-101WS ingredient solution, the ginger pear beverage prototype demonstrates reduced astringency and clean flavor expression in a clear beverage. A blend of whey and soy protein specifically developed for high acid applications, BevWise A-101WS delivers superior functionality as well as excellent nutritive value.
Further highlighting its beverage formulation expertise, Glanbia Nutritionals will also showcase an Energy and Recovery Superfruit Punch, featuring CarniPure™ for sustained energy release, and VitaCholine™, an essential nutrient for athletic recovery. The energy and recovery beverage prototype also includes PepForm™ 2:1:1 BCAA Peptides for increased delivery of the beneficial branched chain amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.
In terms of snacking, Glanbia Nutritionals will offer Probiotic and Omega-3 tortilla chips formulated with Ganeden BC30™ a superior shelf stable probiotic which supports digestive health and immune system maintenance. For enhanced textural and visual appeal, the tortilla chips will also be prepared with SelectGrad® Cracked Flax LW Brown Flaxseed, which also offers an excellent and stable source of omega-3 nutrition. The tortilla chips prototype will be complemented by an Antioxidant Salsa containing pTeroPure®, a powerful, nature-identical antioxidant for overall health benefits.
To satisfy SSW visitors who have a sweet-tooth but seek less sugar, Glanbia Nutritionals is presenting a Blueberry Almond Chewy Granola Bar, featuring the company’s award-winning OptiSol® 2000 milk protein concentrate binding system. OptiSol 2000 offers up to 50 per cent sugar reduction and excellent binding properties for chewy granola bars, baked bars, cereal clusters and snack bars, without compromising on the flavor and texture characteristics of the food. Glanbia Nutritionals’ granola bar formulation also includes Setria® Gluathione, a tri-peptide consisting of three amino acids: glutamate, cysteine, and glycine, which helps to protect the body from toxins and oxidative stress.
