Knowde expands list of healthcare ingredient suppliers

Published: 15-Feb-2024

The expansion sees the addition of AstraReal and Stratum Nutrition to its roster

Nutrition, healthcare, and pharmaceutical companies can now source active ingredients from AstaReal and Stratum Nutrition on Knowde, the first company to build software tools that transform how these companies discover, engage, and transact with ingredient, polymer, and chemical suppliers online.

Knowde strives to makes it easier for formulators, research and development (R&D) professionals and procurement teams to find ingredients, request documents, order samples, receive quotes, access experts who can answer technical questions and place orders from a range of suppliers.

“Innovation, sustainability and the ability to replace petrochemical-based ingredients with biomaterials are key drivers in the nutrition, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industries. Knowde enables formulators and researchers to find what they need fast, to help shorten development time and get new products to market faster,” said Kyle Bastien, Vice President of Sales for Knowde. 

“Procurement teams can simplify the process of sourcing materials and source new suppliers and alternative materials when supply chain disruptions occur.”

AstaReal, a subsidiary of Fuji Chemical Industries Co., Ltd., is the largest producer of commercial natural astaxanthin.

AstaReal’s team of astaxanthin experts provides its clients with 360 degree R&D, product development, and marketing support worldwide.

Stratum Nutrition, a business of ESM Technologies, LLC, produces research-supported ingredients for human and pet health.

Stratum Nutrition offers progressive, safe, and effective ingredients including NEM eggshell membrane, Bimuno GOS prebiotic, LBiome, Lactobacillus LB postbiotic, Ahiflower omegas, NatAxtin, Chilean astaxanthin, curQplus, and ESC brand eggshell calcium.

“Being able to filter by chemistry, application, function, technical properties, and more helps formulators, researchers, and buyers find the right ingredient quickly. 

This is an advantage that Knowde is uniquely able to offer with our proprietary taxonomy and industry leading search functionality,” said Bastien.
