Nutraceuticals & Dietary Supplements
The term "nutraceutical" combines the words "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical." Nutraceutical products are foods meant to provide medical benefits. They contain ingredients that enhance the product's nutritional value and the consumer's health.
Nowadays claims like “probiotic," “source of vitamin” and “an excellent source of fiber” are crucial for consumers to consider and purchase a product. Brenntag Food & Nutrition offers an immense variety of dietary supplements, functional foods, beverages, and medical foods to satisfy consumer demands.
- Dietary supplements
Many people take a nutraceutical every day. Dietary supplements such as multivitamins and botanicals have an isolated form of a nutrient found in food. The consumer takes them as a pill or liquid.
- Functional foods and beverages
Foods with nutrients added through processing or fermentation are functional foods. The food industry adds nutrients to numerous products on the market.
- Medical foods
Patients with severe malnutrition or the inability to eat regular food need medical food. Medical food contains concentrated nutrients that the doctor administers through a feeding tube.
- Plant-based alternatives
Having vegan and plant-based options are one of the biggest trends of the nutraceutical and dietary supplements industry. The perfect mix of a balanced diet with selected elements of performance nutrition is what consumers are looking for.
