Much of the innovation in the dietary supplement and functional products market is from improved delivery technologies. Safeguarding the ingredients from the harsh acidic environment of the stomach, fostering increased bioavailability and absorption, and controlling the release timing and amounts are all the goals of improved delivery. In addition to these attributes, delivery systems must also address consumer demands for convenience, optimized taste and even attractiveness (color, shape, size, etc.), all which improve compliance and ease-of-ingestion.
With an increasingly prominent role in manufacturing such products, due partly to good manufacturing and other requirements and costs, contract manufacturers are in a unique position to encounter and utilize innovative delivery technologies to help brand owner clients differentiate in the marketplace and offer better products and health to consumers. Contract manufacturers can develop new delivery technologies or enter into licensing agreements to offer cutting edge delivery to clients. Either way, it is important the contract manufacturer understands the delivery choices available and help the brand owner or formulator find the best format for a specific ingredient or product.
The INSIDER Report, "Contract Manufacturers: At the Forefront of Delivery Technology," explores this topic in detail, providing insights on both newly developed delivery technologies and newly improved tried-and-true delivery systems that are impacting the dietary supplement and functional products marketplace, as well as information on how contract manufacturers apply specific delivery systems to specific products.
