The previous episode covered the technological innovations of the 1970s
Indena has released the eighth episode of its Phytocast podcast, a historical series taking a decade-by-decade look at the company’s progress since it was founded in 1921.
The most recent episode is dedicated to the 1980s, titled: “The Phytocomplex”.
“The spirit of these years is marked by a new aesthetic, by people’s desire to be in shape, to take care of their body – investing time and attention in food and health products, with a special focus on natural options. In this context, Indena seizes the perfect time to give new value to complex plant extracts: its long laboratory expertise is finally able to prove multi-component derivatives are repeatable and reliable, creating the conditions for the nutraceutical market to blossom,” the company said.
“There is one plant that, above all others, can celebrate the decade and fully represent the story of this new supply chain: the Bilberry, which Indena used to develop – and successfully test – a new method to map and characterise anthocyanins. An extract that is still considered a universal standard in nutraceutics, able to prove the beneficial effects of phytocomplexes on health.”
