See, taste and touch: DSM to feature more than 60 functional food, beverage and dietary supplement concepts during IFT 2015
DSM (Booth 2839), a leading nutritional ingredient supplier, will showcase its comprehensive omega-3 portfolio at IFT 2015 through great-tasting food and beverage products that consumers are looking for.
Consumers rate maintaining heart and cognitive health among their top health concerns. Scientific evidence suggests that there is a positive correlation between omega-3 intake and both heart and cognitive health. Yet, only two out of ten adults get the recommended 250–1000mg of EPA and DHA per day.
Increasingly, consumers are incorporating functional foods and beverages as a means to stay healthy and make up the nutrient deficits in their diets.
Research indicates six out of ten adults select foods for healthful reasons and, when it comes to omega-3s, consumers who had the option to purchase a product they regularly buy compared with one fortified with omega-3s and offering the same exact flavour and taste, 63% said they would purchase the omega-3 fortified product (DSM consumer research, 2014).
DSM, the global leader in omega-3s will showcase all of its nutritional lipid capabilities at IFT 2015, from product forms to technologies for a range of applications and products, along with its vast ingredient portfolio, global R&D expertise, plus production, distribution and marketing resources to help manufacturers meet the needs of health-conscious consumers around the world.
DSM’s omega-3s from both fish and algal sources will be available in multiple food and beverage applications to taste and review:
DSM’s portfolio of omega-3s also includes life’sOmega, a vegetarian omega-3 containing high levels of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids to support important heart health benefits throughout life.
