incaberryFrutarom Health BU launches its new IncaberrixTM superberry ingredient formulations for confectionary products at Fi Europe, Paris, December 1-3.

Incaberrix is a natural ingredient sourced from Inca golden berries, the ancient Andean physalis fruit. It combines superfruit health benefits with an exotic sweet and sour flavour that is trending up.

Incaberrix is particularly rich in B-complex vitamins, protein and minerals. It also is high in vitamin C and carotenoids. This nutrient adds health benefits, combined with a fun and an exotic touch, and has piqued the curiosity of confectionary and beverages companies in the past four months.

“Incaberrix is an exciting natural ingredient,” says Yannick Capelle, Product Manager for Frutarom Health. “We see a rapidly growing interest from the market, not only from beverage producers, but also from food supplement and confectionary companies seeking new, natural ingredients rich in phytonutrients. Incaberrix meets the increasing demand for natural ingredients, specifically for natural sources of minerals and vitamins.”

According to new global product launch activity tracked by Innova Market Insights, the use of superfruit flavours in confectionery increased by 13% from 2013 to 2014. In the confectionery category, superfruit flavours were most prevalent in sugar confectionery (22.5%), gummies/jellies (19.7%), hard candy (17.6%), and chocolate blocks (16.8%).

“Stability during processing and throughout shelf life is one of the main issues the food industry faces when using natural ingredients,” explains Capelle. “Formulation challenges can involve stability to pH, light, and, temperature as well as oxidative degradation and interactions with other ingredients. Frutarom has overcome these problems using its patented EFLA® HyperPure® technology, and also has improved the raw material selection. The company now obtains extracts with much higher solubility, increasing versatility and flavour and enhancing clean label application.”

Frutarom is a leading flavor and fine ingredients house ranked among the top 10 companies in the global market. Fulfilling its commitment to become the preferred partner for taste-driven, healthy success, Frutarom provides advanced solutions for the food & beverage, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

Frutarom will be at Fi Europe, Paris, December 1-3, booth #6R29
