Evolva Teams upp with the Cornelius Groupto Market Resveratrol

evolva_yeast_logo_RGBBoth Evolva and the Cornelius Group, an independent European ingredient distributor, have partnered together for the marketing of resveratrol in certain European markets. Evolva’s resveratrol is produced via a fermentation process using yeast. Resveratrol is an ingredient found in red grapes, blueberries, nuts and other plants. The company notes that there is already a significant body of evidence showing that resveratrol can produce a positive impact on healthy-ageing variables like heart health, bone health, and blood-glucose control and points out that scientists have also found evidence in key biomarkers that resveratrol might slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and mimic the effects of a calorie-restricted diet.

“Most resveratrol on the market today comes from the Japanese knotweed plant,” said Joy Thomas, technical manager, Cornelius Group. “Evolva’s resveratrol is different and is manufactured via the fermentation of yeast, making it a pure product that is free of pesticides and other impurities that can be found in knotweed extracts.”

The fermented resveratrol from Evolva is said to have a purity over 98% and to be suitable for a broad range of products from capsules and tablets for dietary supplements to more complex applications in foods, animal nutrition and personal care products. Cornelius is said to have a strong position in these application markets. As the exclusive distributor for Evolva’s fermented resveratrol, Cornelius will supply the ingredient to the UK, Republic of Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland foods market, countries with a total population 96 million.

“Consumers are now demanding formulations derived from natural sources,” said Thomas. “The clean label trend is now seen more as a consumer expectation, as well as an industry standard. Fermentation of Evolva’s resveratrol is a natural process and supports the current market and consumer trends”.

“Much of the resveratrol sold today is made from knotweed, which results in a lack of control over the standard of crop,” said Evolva CEO Neil Goldsmith. “The benefit of using the fermentation process is that it ensures the quality of the ingredient. Manufacturing resveratrol through the fermentation of yeast offers us, and our customers, peace of mind as it’s made from natural and sustainable feedstocks and has a stable, traceable and reliable supply chain.”

Evolva’s mission is to discover and supply innovative, high-value, sustainable ingredients, with an emphasis on health, wellness and nutrition. The company combines modern genetics with traditional brewing, removing any issues. Evolva’s process is to take every day baker’s yeast and give it the same ability to make the ingredient as the original plant or animal.
