DSM to showcase nutritional solutions at FiSA 2014

DSM will demonstrate its technical expertise and broad portfolio of ingredients

DSM will present its latest innovations on stand D30 at this year’s Food Ingredients South America (FiSA), which takes place from 5-7 August in São Paulo, Brazil and the company invites visitors to the stand to enjoy a selection of product prototypes. Committed to offering its Latin American customers the highest quality products to support an array of health benefits, DSM will demonstrate its technical expertise and broad portfolio of ingredients to food and beverage manufacturers in the region.

DSM experts will be available to discuss the company’s nutritional lipids offering and the many advantages omega-3s can bring, including heart, cognitive and eye health benefits. DSM’s broad portfolio includes nutritional lipids derived from fish oil, including MEG-3, a source of EPA/DHA omega-3 without the fishy taste or smell, and life’sDHA. This source of DHA omega-3 is derived from algae and provides important health benefits for people of all ages, as well as offering a commercially viable and efficient alternative for vegetarian applications. Visitors to the stand will be able to sample life’sDHA capsules, as well as rich chocolate milk infused with life’sDHA to create an indulgent, yet healthy treat.

We are proud to showcase our range of nutritional solutions at this flagship show

Also on stand is DSM’s OatWell oat beta-glucan, a naturally-derived ingredient, which is said to offer heart health benefits. Beta-glucan is a soluble fibre found in oats that helps to maintain healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, both key pillars of cardiovascular function. Multiple clinical studies show that 3g of beta-glucan every day lowers cardiovascular disease risk by as much as 20%. OatWell is suitable for use in breads, biscuits and cereals, pasta, beverages, instant powder drinks and dietary supplements. Pure OatWell, vanilla-flavoured sachets and bakery products made with OatWell will be on the stand to sample.

Fortitech Premixes will be presented at the show. These customised blends combine functional ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleotides, nutraceuticals and herbs, in one single premix. A variety of prototypes incorporating these premixes will be available to sample, including fortified gummies, cookies, cheese and cocktails.

Also this year, DSM is to host a gastronomic experience with creative chefs on-stand to cook up a culinary delight from 17.30 to 19.30 every day. Guests can try mouth-watering risottos, juices and vitamin-popsicles and see how fortification adds value and consumer health benefits, without affecting taste, odour or colour.

Ana-Luisa Aguiar, Head of Marketing, Latin America, Human Nutrition & Health at DSM, said: ‘Latin America is one of the fastest-growing markets in the food and ingredients industry and we are proud to showcase our range of nutritional solutions at this flagship show.
