Vitamins, fibres and functional extracts
Lifestyle-related health challenges and an ageing population call for a new approach to consumer diets. The DuPont™ Danisco® range of ingredients addresses this by offering vitamins, fibres and extracts for healthier food solutions.
Fractures due to osteoporosis are a risk we all face as we grow older. Among consumers, there is a growing awareness of the need for calcium and vitamin D in the diet to maintain healthy bones.
EFSA has delivered a positive opinion on vitamin K2 and bone health. From the DuPont™ Danisco® range, we offer ActivK™ vitamin K2 (MK-7) for food applications and dietary supplements. ActivK™ ‘unlocks’ calcium for better absorption into the bone mass, which it also helps to maintain. Read more here.
The global obesity crisis places growing demands on our stretched healthcare resources, increasing the incidence of diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and cardiovascular disease. DuPont has expertise in formulating ingredients that can help consumers manage their calorie intake sensibly.
Our soluble fibre, Litesse®, is one example. Perfect for a wide range of low sugar and sugar free food and beverage products, Litesse® can aid weight management by lowering increases in blood glucose after meals compared to sugar-containing foods. Moreover, studies indicate that Litesse® has a prebiotic effect by supporting the “good” bacteria (bifidobacteria and lactobacilli) in the human intestine. Best of all, it does so without compromising taste or texture. Read more here.
From enhanced cardiovascular health to superior sports performance, DuPont™ Danisco® functional extracts accommodate a broad range of consumer needs.
