Functional foods and drinks are among the most successful and fastest growing segments in nutrition. More and more consumers prefer supplementing their diet with a functional food or beverage instead of a pill. Many of the most popular and important health ingredients, however, are insoluble in water, and, hence can only be added to a very limited number of foods.
Examples for those actives are the fat soluble vitamins, CoQ10, ß-carotene, Lutein, alpha-lipoic acid, Isoflavone and numerous others.
AQUANOVA, with its NovaSOL® range of health ingredients for functional foods, makes it now possible to fortify all types of functional foods and drinks with all actives. Not only fat soluble ingredients can be added to beverages, the beverages even stay crystal clear, which allows to develop totally new product concepts, particularly in the sport, fitness and energy categories. This has become possible thanks AQUANOVA’s patented solubilisation technology.
As a result of this technology, water insoluble actives become truly water soluble and bio-available without any chemical modification.
