· Launch of the brand Lynside®
The product range of Lesaffre Human Care® is placed under the global umbrella of the trademark Lynside® (Lesaffre Yeast Inside). This range is currently made up of 4 categories and about 30 products. All of these products are derived from yeast which is a natural source par excellence. Their targeted field of application: dietary supplements and functional foods.
New products will progressively be launched to broaden the existing portofolio. A launch program has already been defined for the upcoming years. This program will be starting in the second half of 2008.
Lesaffre Human Care® is also able to provide custom-made solutions to meet special needs expressed by its partners which are neither covered by the existing product range nor by the already defined launch program.
· The Lynside® brand
Until now, these products were sold under local brands with diverse brand awareness. From now onwards, they are all placed under the umbrella of the global brand name Lynside®.
· Applications of Lynside®
Ingredients derived from yeast contain many components (high quality proteins, minerals, B vitamins, fibres, essential amino acids…) to balance the body’s principal functions: growth, cell metabolism, immune system, anti oxydation…
These ingredients have a special interest for the composition of food/dietary suuplements and functional foods.
· An innovative production with high "quality-safety" standards®
Lesaffre Human Care® relies on the production facilities of Lesaffre Group which are very well recognised in the industry as reliable and of high quality.

Lynside® products are among those that get most of the attention with regards to quality and safety.
