With access to more than 1,400 ingredients, Fortitech® Premixes delivers precise blends of the desired functional ingredients – vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nutraceuticals and botanicals – in one single, efficient, homogenous premix. Each batch is carefully tested and qualified and its team of scientists, regulatory and quality professionals is well positioned to support customers with traceability, market clearance and clinical substantiation of premix ingredients.

Precise blends of desired functional ingredients

“We have a proven record in providing custom nutrient premixes for food and beverage applications and see a large opportunity for premixes to be more widely used in the dietary supplement industry,” comments Philippo De-Simone, Director of Dietary Supplement Sales at DSM. “Our one-stop service streamlines the production process, and saves manufacturers the time and operational costs associated with in-house quality management. For example, there is reduced expenditure on labor, inventory and testing and manufacturers can put plants to use for other requirements.”
