Balchem unveils new product concepts to inspire innovation at SSW

Published: 12-Oct-2023

Join Balchem on booth #5036 at SupplySide West in Las Vegas, 25-26 October 2023, to discover the company’s latest insights and innovation in the nutraceuticals market

Balchem, a global manufacturer of specialty ingredients for human nutrition and health (HNH), is set to showcase its latest innovations at this year's SupplySide West exhibition, focusing on three key pillars: innovate, integrate and illuminate.

Championing integration across its wide range of product brands — including K2VITAL, VitaCholine, Albion Minerals and OptiMSM — Balchem invites visitors to sample new application concepts that combine multiple ingredients for enhanced benefits.

The company is also highlighting its plant-based powders, with plans to unveil an oat-milk-based creamer in a coffee Frappuccino prototype, which can be tasted at the booth.

Integrate: uncovering new synergies   
Visitors are invited to taste Balchem’s first-of-a-kind prototypes on the stand, developed to inspire formulators and shape next-generation solutions that tackle multiple health categories.

Combining a range of Balchem’s HNH branded ingredients, these new concepts include UpLift Mood Melts, featuring VitaCholine to support adult cognition, an Accentuate Beauty Stick for longevity and the UpCharge Bar for enhanced performance.

The company will also spotlight the synergies between Albion Minerals and K2VITAL DELTA, the world’s only patented microencapsulated all-trans vitamin K2 MK-7 preparation for use in combination with minerals.  

Encapsulated twice, the exceptional stability of K2VITAL DELTA allows manufacturers to blend it with the highly bioavailable chelated minerals, such as Albion Minerals, without compromising efficacy.

“In the past few years, we’ve made some strategic brand acquisitions and, I must say, I’m genuinely excited about the synergy among our integrated branded ingredients."

"We are looking forward to discussing the fresh formulation possibilities with our partners at SupplySide West,” comments Dominik Mattern, VP Science, Business Development and Marketing Balchem Human Nutrition and Health.

“Science has always been a beacon for us. The existing research suggests that a combination of vitamins K2 and D3 can significantly benefit health."

"Now, we're moving from the perfect pair to the perfect trio, combining K2VITAL DELTA, vitamin D3 and magnesium from Albion Minerals."

"Considering the impressive surge in the magnesium category, this mix promises manufacturers a unique edge.”

Innovate: a taste of the future
Balchem’s Powders and Cereals division is set to reveal the expansion of its lipid-based powder offering at this year’s exhibition with the launch of VitalBlend MCT 7202 NG — a high energy source that enhances both texture and taste in food and beverage applications, while supporting health and vitality.

In addition, the company plans to debut RICHMIX 3807— a premium cold water-soluble creamer that comes in different flavours and colours, perfect for popular beverages such as iced coffees, smoothies or frozen desserts.

Visitors are also invited to discover two plant-based alternatives at the Balchem stand: VitalBlend Pea Organic 5023, a vegan palm-oil based pea protein creamer for use in a wide range of applications, and RICHMIX 4808, an allergen-free, plant-based powder that can effectively substitute dairy-based spray dried lipid powders in beverage formulations.

Illuminate: shining a light on quality, transparency and research  
At the show Balchem will also highlight its commitment to quality, transparency and research with two programmes: TruQuality for K2VITAL and TRAACS (The Real Amino Acid Chelate System) for Albion Minerals — which have been developed with the aim of forging an ethical marketplace in which both customers and end users can trust the products they choose.

As part of the TruQuality initiative, Balchem has recently joined forces with a third-party laboratory, Alkemist Labs, to address rising concerns regarding vitamin K2 quality in the US market – particularly for online channels.

Together, their collective mission is to enhance transparency, authenticity and safety within the industry.  

On the final day of the event, Thursday 26 October at 11.30 am, at booth #3677, Eric Ciappo, Balchem’s Strategic Development Manager, Nutrition Science, will host a presentation entitled “Unlocking the promise of health span with science-backed ingredients.”

Visitors are invited to attend the session to find out more about Balchem’s most recent scientific research — including a new OptiMSM study on hair health to inspire innovation in the beauty-from-within category and an exciting VitaCholine study on cognition.
