Attendees at Ingredient Marketplace—taking place April 27 to 29 in Orlando, Florida—will have the opportunity to connect with a range of leading companies across the health and nutrition space, with four official sponsors highlighting their innovative solutions in key ingredient and health categories.
“The Official Sponsors of Ingredient Marketplace have unique offerings that can help companies across the food, beverage, dietary supplement and beauty categories differentiate their products in a crowded marketplace," said Jon Benninger, vice president of Informa’s Global Health & Nutrition Network, the producers of Ingredient Marketplace. “As the show focuses on the ‘mind of the consumer,’ it is worth noting areas where consumers are seeking information and efficacious products, and these companies are showcasing their expertise."
The Official Sponsors of Ingredient Marketplace include:
• Antioxidant Sponsor: Welch’s Global Ingredients Group, a global leader in grapes, is focusing on the positive effects on heart, cognitive and immune health. Concord grape ingredients can be integrated into food and beverage products with great consumer appeal, while dietary supplements can take advantage of a familiar ingredient with a powerful health message.
• Collagen Protein Sponsor: GELITA is the leading company for collagen proteins, which are peptides with proven body-stimulating capabilities and tailor-made gelatins for food and pharma applications. Collagen peptides support a range of health benefits, including joint mobility, bone stability, beauty from within and optimized body composition.
• Curcumin Sponsor: The inventor of the patented Curcumin C3 Complex®, Sabinsa, has pioneered the introduction of more than 100 standardized herbal extracts since 1988. Curcumin C3 Complex is carefully cultivated and optimized to deliver unadulterated, non-GMO curcumin, and is being studied for its applications in joint health support and metabolic syndrome.
• Eye Health Sponsor: Since its launch 20 years ago, FloraGLO® Lutein has been shown in 70 human clinical trials to support a lifetime of eye health benefits, from infants to seniors. FloraGLO Lutein has an outstanding reputation for efficacy, trust and safety, and has been brought to market by Kemin Health with DSM Nutritional Products.
