Vitafoods Europe: Roquette explains link between physiological and nutritional needs

Roquette will bring vegan sports nutrition to the show, launch a new grade of pea protein for sports drink products

The global nutraceutical market is projected to grow 8% per year. This growth comes from emerging countries, but also from ageing populations, the rising cost of healthcare, increasing on-the-go & health-conscious consumers being proactive about their health, and consumers selecting ingredients based on clean label or dietary restrictions.

“Providing consumers with appealing, easy to take, and affordable dosage supplements is our nutraceutical customers’ first priority, which is why the performance, quality and stability of their formulations is our priority,” says Kelsey Achenbach, Head of Marketing Pharma at Roquette.

Roquette is well positioned to meet these needs and to help its customers get closer to the health & nutrition market’s expectations with a portfolio of products.

These ingredients are entirely plant-based and are consumer-friendly solutions to address key challenges related to health, including Sports Nutrition, changes in food consumption patterns and growing supplement consumption around the world.

Samples addressing specific nutritional needs will be available at the company’s booth:
