NattoPharma (Oslo, Norway) unveiled its latest vitamin K2 innovation yet at this year’s SupplySide West trade show: the industry’s first and only full-spectrum vitamin K2 ingredient that comprehensively provides menaquinones (MK) 6, 7, 8, and 9, all vital to heart health.
The company rolled out several botanical-based concepts centered on these two hot-topic health areas.
This ingredient offers benefits such as low glycemic and insulin response and healthy bowel function.
The ingredient is designed to withstand high temperatures and stay soluble and stable when added to hot water.
The Triple-T program takes a three-pronged approach to supply-chain traceability: trace, test, and trust.
The probiotic energy tablet the company is exhibiting at SupplySide West contains 2 billion CFU of probiotics per tablet, but the firm says it can also manufacture other probiotic chewables that contain up to 25 billion CFU probiotic/tablet.
The ingredient, called Sustra 2434, is a blend of native corn starch and tapioca flour and, according to the company, has been scientifically shown in the company’s proprietary research to promote a lower glycemic index and steadier blood sugar levels over an extended period of time.
Reginator is a patented blend of nine essential amino acids, plus arginine, that has been shown to increase muscle synthesis.
The new format is a stick pack containing probiotic powder that melts directly in the mouth—no water needed, the company says.
The new ingredient has a “degree of hydrolysis (DH) of 20,” the company says, which makes it significantly more absorbable in the body compared to other forms of protein.
