DSM Focuses on Diverse Needs of Modern Consumers with New Nutrient Platforms at Vitafoods 2012

2 Apr 2012 — Global supplier of health and nutrition ingredients, DSM, is launching three Health Benefit Solutions and the dietary enzyme Tolerase L at this year’s Vitafoods. Designed to meet the ever-evolving requirements of the modern consumer, these new platforms feature a range of vitamins, minerals and functional ingredients for three growing areas of consumer interest:  relaxation and sleep, improved mental energy and wakefulness and nutrients that cater to the specific nutritional requirements of vegetarians.

The key ingredient in the vegetarian platform is life’sDHA, a form of DHA derived from algae. life’sDHA has supported the nutritional needs of more than 60 million babies and is now included in over 500 food and beverage products worldwide. Essential for brain, eye and heart health, this omega-3 is often lacking in vegetarian diets as the primary food source is oily fish such as salmon and tuna. ‘Energize your mind’ features a number of ingredients, including gingko biloba, ginseng and Coenzyme Q10 that help the mind stay alert, whereas ‘Relax your mind’ features nutraceuticals such as chamomile and lemon balm that help calm the mind and prepare the body for sleep.

To help consumers get the optimal amount of nutrients from food, beverage and dietary supplements, DSM is also introducing Tolerase L at this year’s show.  Tolerase L is an acid lactase that is active at low pH, making it particularly effective to digest lactose in the stomach and therefore ideal for use in dietary supplements as a digestive aid. Tolerase L helps to eliminate lactose intolerance discomfort and increase the quality of life of consumers with lactose intolerance or malabsorption.

“Today’s consumers live varied, demanding and often highly stressful lifestyles, and, when it comes to functional foods, beverages and dietary supplements, they want products that meet their own specific requirements. Our extensive range of targeted Health Benefit solutions help manufacturers respond to those needs,” comments Gareth Barker, Vice President, Marketing, Human Nutrition and Health, DSM. “Our applications know how and blending expertise puts DSM in a strong position to help our customers meet a broad range of consumer demands quickly and effectively.”
