Ingredients for health, nutrition and wellbeing
Our ingredients help manufacturers bring healthier and more nutritious products to market. We are focused on developing a suite of new ingredients designed to enhance people’s wellbeing and provide scientifically-supported active ingredients for healthcare products.
Single-source ingredients for manufacturers
As consumers look for alternatives to artificial and highly processed products, PGP International provides natural alternatives to food manufacturers. Its portfolio of single-source ingredients includes vegan pre-gelatinised rice flours which can support sugar or fat reduction in baked goods or replicate the texture of dairy ice cream.
Ingredients for tastier plant-based meat
Consumers are increasingly looking for plant-based meat alternatives as a healthier and more sustainable choice.
Authentic taste and flavour are key to stimulating repeat purchases of plant-based alternatives. Ohly’s flavour experts have developed a range of vegan flavour solutions that help to replicate the taste of meat, imparting meaty, roasted notes in plant-based meat alternatives.
Versatile alternative proteins
PGP International’s dry texturised protein, PROLIFICA, is a non-GMO high-quality protein, made from soy or pea, that mimics the texture of meat. Available in various combinations of shape, size and protein content, it is exceptionally versatile and allows food manufacturers to be more creative when developing plant-based burgers, meatballs and sausages.
Proving the effectiveness of new health ingredients
Ingredients innovations by the Fytexia team have clinically proven health benefits backed by research and data. Its scientists developed Sinetrol®, a prebiotic citrus polyphenol-based ingredient that regulates lipid metabolism, and has been proven to reduce excess fat mass and improve long-term body composition.
Optimising nutrition in bars and cereals
PGP International’s extruded soy, pea and rice crisp products contain up to 90% protein, essential for healthy and balanced diets that support long-term, good health. They're naturally vegan and popular in bars, cereals and protein snacks.
Ingredients that help manufacturers reduce sugar content
Using PGP International’s vegan pre-gelatinised rice flour means that manufacturers can replace up to 35% of syrup-based binding ingredients and reduce sugar in bars, granolas and bakery products.
Optimising immune systems with better supplements
Quality ingredients are vital to effective health and dietary supplements. AB Biotek Human Nutrition and Health uses yeast fermentation to produce naturally sourced minerals that benefit immune health, including chromium, manganese, selenium, and zinc. Each is available in various formats according to manufacturers' requirements.
Helping consumers get their five-a-day
At Fytexia, Oxxynea® is a whole food concentrate of fruit and vegetable extracts that offer a consumer the equivalent of polyphenols as found in five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables. It helps fill a vital nutritional gap to mimic the beneficial effects of a diverse diet.
Enhancing energy and cognition with high-quality ingredients
ABITEC Corporation's complete suite of nutritional ingredients can be added to food, drinks and supplements to address a range of health requirements, such as enhancing cognition and energy. This includes taste-masking products for palatability, products which maximise the bioavailability of a nutrient and those which enhance its effectiveness by controlling the release of ingredients.
