At Vitafoods Europe 2022, functional ingredient expert Taiyo will present brand new concepts which address current consumer trends, such as healthy ageing, sports nutrition and clean label products. The company will present new additions to its Sunfiber® portfolio – an all-natural, 100% soluble dietary fiber – as well as its new Sunfiber Water Concept, an optimum hydration offering with health-boosting properties. It will also present Sunphenon EC, known for its high polyphenol and catechin content with proven antioxidant effects. Other highlights at the Taiyo stand include new concepts for Vegemeat and Sunfiber.
With Sunphenon EC, Taiyo offers a new variant in addition to existing green tea extracts. This product in the Sunphenon range is rich in epicatechin, which is found predominantly in cocoa and green tea, and has a proven positive effect on the cardiovascular system. Furthermore, a decrease in morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular diseases is associated with the consumption of flavanols. Therefore, it is perfect for elderly people or other consumers who have problems with muscle health, such as muscle atrophy. The product has been specially developed for use in instant tea sticks, instant beverages or supplements.
Other highlights at the Taiyo stand include the various Sunfiber Blends with different added health benefits. As well as the Sunfiber Water Concept, which allows the production of isotonic drinks that contain less sugar and additional dietary fiber for a much higher bioavailability of minerals. It is also possible to customize such beverages by adding more active ingredients such as Q10 or curcumin, depending on the target group. For example, elderly people, children or athletes. They could benefit from the Sunfiber Water Concept, as these groups are dependent on a targeted nutrient intake.
New concepts surrounding the pea-based meat alternative Vegemeat for various consumer groups will be presented. Furthermore, Taiyo introduces a new formulation for their Vegan Protein Shake Concept. The included chia protein makes the mouthfeel much smoother and Taiyo’s ingredients Sunfiber®, Raw Coffee Powder and SunActive® Zinc deliver added nutritional value. The concept can be used for ready-to-drink shakes or protein-enriched ice cream, and is available in three different flavors.
