DSM to showcase innovative range of nutritional solutions at FiSA 2014
DSM will present its latest innovations at this year’s Food Ingredients South America (FiSA) and invites visitors to the stand to enjoy a selection of tasty product prototypes, with added value fortification. Committed to offering its Latin American customers the highest quality products to support an array of health benefits, DSM will demonstrate its technical expertise and broad portfolio of ingredients to food and beverage manufacturers in the region.
DSM experts are available to discuss the company’s nutritional lipids offering and the many advantages omega-3s can bring, including heart, cognitive and eye health benefits. DSM’s broad portfolio includes nutritional lipids derived from fish oil, including MEG-3®, a source of EPA/DHA omega-3 without the fishy taste or smell, and life’sDHA™. This source of DHA omega-3 is derived from algae and provides important health benefits throughout life for people of all ages, as well as offering a commercially viable and efficient alternative for vegetarian applications. Visitors to the stand will be able to sample life’sDHA capsules, as well as rich chocolate milk infused with life’sDHA to create an indulgent, yet healthy treat.
Also on stand is DSM’s OatWell® oat beta-glucan, a naturally-derived ingredient, which is particularly well known for its heart health benefits. Beta-glucan is a soluble fiber found in oats that helps to maintain healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, both key pillars of cardiovascular function. Multiple clinical studies show that three grams of beta-glucan per day lowers cardiovascular disease risk by as much as 20 per cent. OatWell is ideal for use in many applications, ranging from breads, biscuits and cereals to pasta, beverages, instant powder drinks and dietary supplements. Pure OatWell, vanilla-flavored sachets and bakery products made with OatWell will be on stand to taste.
Fortitech® Premixes by DSM will be presented at the show. These customized blends combine a range of functional ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, nucleotides, nutraceuticals and herbs, in one single premix. This technology allows manufacturers to boost the nutritional profile of a wide variety of dietary supplements, foods and beverages without altering the taste, texture, color or mouthfeel. A variety of prototypes incorporating these premixes will be available to sample, including fortified gummies, cookies, cheese and a range of cocktails.
Also this year, DSM is to host a gastronomic experience with creative chefs on-stand to cook up a culinary delight from 17.30 to 19.30 every day. Guests can try mouth-watering risottos, juices and vitamin-popsicles and see how fortification adds value and consumer health benefits, without affecting taste, odor or color.
