Naturex showcases latest innovations enhancing the consumer health and wellness experience at Expo West 2019


Anaheim (CA, USA) 03/05/2019


Naturex is using Natural Products Expo West 2019 as the launch-pad for two exciting ingredients that harness current consumer health & wellness trends whilst responding to application challenges. Turmipure Gold™ is the first bioequivalent turmeric at a low dose, giving brands the confidence to formulate scientifically backed turmeric products. The plant-based ingredients expert is also launching a new and improved version of its VegeBrite® Spirulina natural blue color, providing a welcome solution in the industry’s continued quest for vibrant natural blues.

Inspiring innovation with real-life concepts

The two ingredient innovations will be brought to life on Naturex’s booth via imaginative in-use concepts that reflect Naturex’s focus on delivering a complete ‘experience’.

Visitors won’t believe the taste and appeal of the organic joint support shot that Naturex will be sampling to highlight the clean label and instant water-dispersibility of Turmipure Gold™.

Visitors will also be invited to indulge in a fun frozen yogurt colored with VegeBrite® Spirulina natural blue and decorated with toppings that showcase Naturex’s wholesome fruit and vegetable powders.

A third ‘experience’ concept – a fire-roasted pineapple & jalapeño functional beverage – will illustrate Naturex’s intensely flavored fire-roasted fruit and vegetables that are produced using a high temperature direct roasting technology. The refreshing health & wellness beverage is enriched with Naturex’s acerola botanical extract, whose 20% vitamin C content opens up healthy lifestyle positioning opportunities.

NEW Turmipure Gold™ delivers more curcuminoids at low dose

Turmeric has risen to stardom as a botanical ingredient thanks to its well-researched benefits for age related conditions. The main bioactives responsible for turmeric’s health effects are curcuminoids. However, curcuminoids are poorly water soluble and absorbed by the body. In a recent comparative clinical study, only 300mg dose of Turmipure Gold™ delivered more curcuminoids in blood than 1500mg of standard turmeric (containing 95% curcuminoids) with or without black pepper extract. In addition to offering unrivalled bioequivalence at a low dose, Turmipure Gold™ is also available as 100% organic certified grade.

100% natural coloring with VegeBrite® Ultimate Spirulina

Vegebrite® Ultimate Spirulina is at the forefront of Naturex coloring foodstuffs range, providing a fully clean, water-extracted coloring solution. Naturex helps manufacturers switch to a 100% natural coloring which, for health-conscious customers comes at the top of their check-list when buying food. Spirulina is a “superfood” with a strong coloring power offering all the shades of blue and green when blended with Naturex’s natural yellows. As of February 2019, Naturex is equipped with a new production line in Avignon, France. It is now able to treble its production capacity and thus

address the global demand for an eye-catching experience of blues and greens. From confectionery and cake decoration, ice-cream to juicy drinks the applications of Vegebrite® Ultimate Spirulina are many. Naturex’s Vegebrite® Ultimate Spirulina will be presented at our booth at Expo West 2019 with a blue frozen yogurt.
