HIE 2016 : Naturex showcases its new approach to natural nutrition


Avignon, 14 November 2016 - With so many health conscious people, the demand for nutrition from natural sources is steadily increasing. As consumers’ approaches to healthy living become more proactive and holistic, the food and nutraceutical industries must be able to answer the call.

A 3-step approach to Natural Nutrition

At the Health Ingredients Europe show, Naturex will be unveiling an innovative approach, that speaks to customers on 3 levels:

Intuitive nutrition: botanical, fruit and vegetable ingredients that offer natural nutrient sources, to speak to and reassure consumers.

Fortification: standardized natural ingredients that go beyond consumer intuition to answer quantifiable nutritional needs.

Nutrition with purpose: whether it's serious athletes looking to boost performance or busy executives that want to manage their weight, natural nutrition can be targeted to specific needs.

3 innovative applications

To illustrate each step of this new Natural Nutrition program, visitors will be able to try several applications first-hand, including an infused birch and cucumber water drink, an instant drink made from moringa, and a sports drink that can be personalized to the user’s needs. Come and visit us on booth F10!

The Start-up Innovation Challenge
