Kemin expands into global immune health market with algae-sourced beta-glucan ingredients

BetaVia Complete and BetaVia Pure ingredients provide immune health benefits for functional foods and beverages

Kemin, a global nutritional ingredient manufacturer, launched its BetaVia product line at the SupplySide West tradeshow on Wednesday, September 27 in Las Vegas. The new product line contains two algae-sourced, GMO-free beta-glucan ingredients tailored for immune support.

BetaVia Complete is a nutrient dense dried whole algae fermentate that provides nutritional support for a healthy immune system and general well-being.

BetaVia Complete consists of more than 50% algae beta-glucans and more than 20% protein with essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

“We recognised an opportunity to serve our customers in the global immune health market, so we’re very excited to offer algae-sourced beta-glucans. We’ve launched an innovative BetaVia research programme to bring cutting edge science and claims to customers” said Anita Norian, President of Kemin Human Nutrition and Health.

BetaVia Pure is an algae-sourced beta-glucan for immune support.

BetaVia Pure consists of more than 95% algae beta-glucans, which is the highest purity of beta-glucans currently available on the market.

The new line of beta-glucans is sourced from a proprietary strain of Euglena gracilis (algae), distinct from the yeast and mushroom sourced immune health ingredients currently on the market.

Kemin in vitro and animal studies show BetaVia ingredients can prime key immune cells, thereby strengthening the body’s immune defenses.
