Ocean Spray’s Ingredient Technology Group (ITG) and Artemis International, a specialty provider of nutraceutical ingredients, will be showcasing cranberry powders at this year’s SupplySide West.
Ocean Spray ITG provides a range of cranberry ingredients for nutraceutical, beverage, dairy, bakery, snacking and confectionery applications. Produced from superior grade cranberries, its cranberry powders lend fruit appeal to confections and dry-mix beverages, while delivering the health benefits associated with the cranberry to dietary supplements, and offering a superior replacement for artificial colors and flavors.
Artemis specializes in supplying phytonutrient ingredients for nutraceutical applications to the food, beverage, dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries. The partnership between Artemis and Ocean Spray combines their experience, technical application expertise and product knowledge to help drive sales growth in the global nutraceutical market.
Cranberry’s nutrient profile includes vitamin C, quercetin and fiber, adding further weight to this berry’s holistic health proposition. Ocean Spray has been a leader in cranberry research for 65 years and is committed to supporting independent research into the whole body benefits of cranberry. While the cranberry is known for its role in maintaining urinary tract health, ongoing research highlights cranberry’s potential to support many different areas of the body.
Tom Jones, Senior Manager, Business Development, Ocean Spray ITG commented: “The synergy between Ocean Spray and Artemis will help us compete in the global nutraceutical market. Artemis is excited about our innovative product range and proves a great choice of partner to help provide sales and marketing support to nutraceutical manufacturers across the world.”
