Glanbia Nutritionals partners with Ixoreal Biomed to optimize KSM-66 Ashwagandha with Glanbia's NutraShield Technology

The combination of KSM-66 with Glanbia's NutraShield Technology will provide functional and application dosage improvements.

Glanbia Nutritionals (Chicago, IL) has optimized Ixoreal Biomed’s KSM-66 Ashwagandha with its NutraShield Technology, utilizing the powder extract as a carrier of its flavor masker during the encapsulation process. This would also provide additional support and protection during inclusion in a formulation that contains other vitamins and minerals with off notes, as well as a higher ashwagandha inclusion rate in products to meet efficacious dose requirements.

“The combination of such a well-established and superior ashwagandha extract, like KSM-66 Ashwagandha, with our decades of experience in nutrient optimization provides customers with a powerful ingredient solution for their ready-to-mix powders, ready-to-drink beverages, chewables, gummies and effervescent,” said Ram Nimmagudda, PhD, senior adviser for Bioactive Product Technology, Glanbia Nutritionals, in a press release.
