Stepan Lipid Nutrition highlights innovative nutritional powder portfolio at VitaFoods Europe 2015


Stepan Lipid Nutrition introduced its portfolio of innovative nutritional powders at VitaFoods Europe in Geneva, Switzerland

Stepan Lipid Nutrition’s portfolio consists of five powders within the Clarinol CLA, Marinol Omega-3 Triglycerides and NEOBEE Medium Chain Triglycerides product lines.

All products are Novel Foods and can be used in capsules, soft gels, gummies, chews and powder mixes.

Clarinol Powder is a microencapsulated oil in free-flowing powder form with a high concentration of conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs) in the form of triglycerides. Human clinical studies have shown that CLA may reduce body fat and increase lean body mass. Recommended applications are food supplements and sport nutrition products.

Marinol Omega-3 Triglycerides are a concentrated, pre-metabolised and naturally structured omega-3 formulation using a gentle, proprietary purification process. The two product forms are Marinol DHA 20% Powder for cognitive health, and Marinol Omega-3 HS Powder, a concentrated blend of EPA and DHA for maintaining heart health. Recommended applications include nutritional products, sports nutrition products, beverages, baked goods and bars.

NEOBEE Medium Chain Triglycerides are produced using glycerol from vegetable sources and medium-chain fatty acids from coconut or palm kernel oil and are available in both 50% and 70% powders.

MCTs are rapidly metabolised to provide energy and research has indicated they may support enhanced nutrient absorption. Recommended applications include sports nutrition and weight management products, and beverage mixes.

'The Stepan Lipid Nutrition powder portfolio can be used in a wide variety of food, beverage, supplement and pharmaceutical products to improve the health of consumers while boosting product performance for manufacturers,' said Robert Bailey, Global Commercial Development Manager at Stepan Lipid Nutrition. 'Our dynamic portfolio of naturally derived ingredients helps customers overcome formulation obstacles, fast track product development and energise a product line.'
