LycoRed Launches Crystal Clear Soluble Vitamin D3 for Beverages
LycoRed, Israel, launched a line of crystal clear, soluble vitamin D3 suited for the beverage industry. This new product line is not only highly soluble but also has extreme clarity and can be used in a wide range of beverages and liquid preparations, powdered beverages, and tablet or RTD formulas. It is especially suited for use in flavored or functional waters.
CapsuDar D3 CWD dissolves instantly and stays stable across a wide range of pH levels. It is a microencapsulated, water-dispersible preparation that protects the normally fat-soluble vitamin against light, oxidation and acids which normally inactivate vitamin D3 when added to beverage applications.
LycoRed offers a wide range of vitamin D formulations, from powder (tablet grade) to cold-water dispersible applications to suspensions for food & beverages.
The CapsuDar line of products targets a wide variety of applications, such as dairy, juices, functional waters, baked goods and dietary supplements. It is stable in multiple nutrient blends as well as at high temperatures and through extreme manufacturing processes which can otherwise affect active ingredients.
Vitamin D-fortified food and beverages play an important role in helping consumers meet recommended intakes. Vitamin D supports calcium metabolism and both of these nutrients are critical for bone health throughout life. But D also has recently been shown to support heart health, weight management, cell differentiation and wound healing/immunity, provide protection for a number of cancers, regulate insulin secretion plus protect against arthritis symptoms, flu, cognitive decline, depression and menopause symptoms. Vitamin D also helps support skin health, making it a key player in the rapidly growing beauty-from-within category.
Euromonitor expects vitamin D to continue its growth in the US with CAGR growth tipped to be 11.2 per cent between 2009 and 2014.
