Health and Wellness
With an increasing emphasis on healthier and safer products, ABITEC Corporation, Ohly and PGP International produce a range of ingredients derived from high quality sources for customers in the nutritional, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.
ABITEC’s wide-ranging portfolio offers extended functional and nutritional benefits to an array of applications in the functional food, supplement, and nutrition markets as bioavailability enhancers, solubilisers, food emulsifiers, and alternative energy sources. They offer a full line of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), as well as an entire portfolio of nutritional powdered lipids. ABITEC’s products are utilised throughout the Sports Nutrition, Weight Wellness, and Dietary Supplement markets.
Ohly produces a range of nutritional yeast products which are rich in essential amino acids and a great source of dietary fibre. Their AUXOFERM® yeast powder has a subtle nutty, cheese like flavour and contains micro nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron. It is also available as AUXOFERM® vitamin yeast powder, which is enriched with vitamins B1, B2, B6 and niacin.
The company also produces AUXOFERM® Saccharomyces boulardii, an active probiotic yeast for use in the treatment of specific gut and digestive diseases. The yeast activates the host’s innate immune system, while also improving the consumption of nutrients by stimulating the release of digestive enzymes.
PGP International's PAC-GEL® product is a multifunctional pre-gelatinised rice flour, which is gluten free with hypoallergenic properties and low microbial levels. It’s the perfect ingredient to be used as an excipient in dietary supplements and nutraceutical products. PGP International's unique milling process ensures that PAC-GEL® products have a small, even particle size that can absorb 4.5-5.5 grams of water per gram of flour. This allows particles to swell easily, develop instant viscosity in cold water and generate smoother, creamier product textures than traditional wheat flours.Plant based proteins and green powders can often be gritty and chalky, so PAC-GEL®’s small particle size makes it ideal for ready-to-mix protein powder and drink mixes.
ABITEC is a global manufacturer of specialty lipid ingredients for the pharmaceutical, nutritional, personal care, and industrial specialty markets. ABITEC delivers a wide range of solutions in solubilisation, emulsification, and lubrication.
PGP International specialises in developing a wide range of extruded ingredients including cereal and protein crisps, as well as an assortment of high quality rice based flours and blends in addition to gluten free products.
