Introducing: Biotis® GOS-OP High Purity
As scientific research continues to highlight the pivotal role a healthy gut microbiome plays in holistic health, consumer interest in gut health is on the rise. To help manufacturers overcome common challenges associated with formulating prebiotic supplements, FrieslandCampina Ingredients will be showcasing its brand new Biotis® GOS-OP High Purity at Supply Side West 2022.
Developed using a patent-pending process, the ingredient delivers a higher concentration of available GOS – typically around 94% – significantly higher than other prebiotics available on the market. Research has also substantiated the efficacy of Biotis® GOS-OP High Purity at doses as low as 2 grams. As a result, this novel ingredient creates opportunities for brands to provide effective dosages of prebiotics in smaller and convenient supplement formats, such as tablets, capsules and gummies.
“Two in three consumers recognise that good gut health is key to overall well-being, meaning there is a significant opportunity for brands to innovate in this area,” says Sophie Zillinger Molenaar, global marketing lead for Biotis® at FrieslandCampina Ingredients. “Gut health supplements are increasingly in demand as they offer busy consumers a convenient way to improve their health and overall well-being. We’re excited to highlight the potential of Biotis® GOS-OP High Purity to help brands reimagine prebiotic supplement innovation at this year’s SupplySide West.”
Plantaris™: powering plant protein NPD
Nearly one quarter of consumers plan to eat more plant-based foods. To inspire product development that meets consumers’ taste and texture expectations, FrieslandCampina Ingredients will be showcasing its range of Plantaris™ plant-based protein powder solutions in the New Product Zone. Plantaris™ Pea Isolate 85 A and Plantaris™ Faba Isolate 90 A provide up to 25 grams of high-quality protein per serving to meet the growing demand for plant-based proteins that are nutritious and mimic dairy’s taste and texture.
Protein fortification on-the-go
To help brands tap into consumer demand for healthy-on-the-go products, FrieslandCampina Ingredients will be showcasing its latest fortified clear protein water concept in the New Product Zone. Built using Nutri Whey™ Isolate Clear and Biotis® GOS, this application is low in calories and highly nutritious, delivering 20g of Protein and 5g of prebiotic galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) per 500ml serving to supporting muscle strength and gut health in one convenient and refreshing solution.
Expert Insight: appealing to gut-conscious consumers
With the global prebiotics market expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% to reach $10.9 billion by 2027, Katherine Burke, Technical Sales Specialist, and Sophie Zillinger-Molenaar, Global Marketing Lead for Biotis®, at FrieslandCampina Ingredients, will highlight opportunities for leveraging this popular ingredient in a presentation at SupplySide West 2022. ‘How to Appeal to Gut-Conscious Consumers in North America’ will take place on 3 November at 2:00pm PST, exploring the trends, claims and product formats gaining traction in the global gut health market.
Innovation for holistic health
On the company’s return to SupplySide West, Auke Zeilstra, Managing Director, North America, at FrieslandCampina Ingredients, said, “Consumers are increasingly taking a proactive approach to their health. Popular health benefit areas include strength and physical resilience, mental well-being, gut health and immunity – with consumers seeking out applications that address as many of their health priorities as possible in one convenient format. Consumers’ health priorities in 2022 and beyond are firmly set on achieving feelings of overall well-being, not ‘fixing’ health issues after they’ve arisen. This is no small feat, but convenient and effective supplements and functional foods can help consumers improve their health, even when busy lifestyles make it difficult to do otherwise.
“SupplySide West always provides excellent opportunities for collaboration and discussion around how the nutrition industry can step up to the challenge of consumers’ ever-evolving health needs. We’re excited to bring our range of ingredients for holistic health – from plant proteins to prebiotics – to the show to accelerate innovation that makes holistic health a reality for consumers.”
