The market is more receptive to products that are as natural as possible and with similar health promoting value as the foods consumers eat. Not to be neglected is the desire for plant-based, sustainable products that benefit healthy aging, well-being and the environment. Increased demand, in combination with recent disruptions in supply chains, has led to a heightened risk for sub-standard or adulterated ingredients with wild claims and regulatory issues entering the supply chain.
Responding to a growing demand for premium, eco-friendly, clean and sustainable botanical ingredients for the health-aware and environmentally conscious aging consumers, the iconic Spain-based global supplier of pharma-grade botanicals developed the Mediterranean fruit and vegetables extracts™. These premium standardized ingredients are inspired by the health-promoting and trendy Mediterranean diet in practical formats, backed by published studies and ongoing research on healthy aging applications such as blood sugar management, sports nutrition, cardiovascular, metabolic, cognitive and mood support, mobility and beauty from within.
With this new line of extracts Euromed has shifted its focus from global to local, diving deep into locally sourced, edible Mediterranean fruits and vegetables that are staple in the Mediterranean diet.
Obtained with a transparent and clean process from edible botanicals through vertical integration and full control of the supply chain, and regulatory hurdles are less stringent as compared to ingredients that would fall under the novel food category. In addition, with qualitative control of all steps from farms to final extract, batch to batch consistency and full documented traceability is guaranteed. This second of a two part webinar series will introduce the Mediterranean fruit and vegetables extracts™, the context of the Mediterranean diet and healthy aging. The focus will then move to ingredients from figs, spinach and lemons, with particular emphasis on polyphenols and flavanones from these botanicals.This webinar will provide valuable information and solutions for a market demanding transparency with regards to how health supplements are produced, a market that prefers certified organic, clean and ecological technologies reducing the risk of chemical residuals and harm to consumer’s health and the environment, delivering on claims relating to health, quality, provenance and sustainability.
Register for this webinar to learn about how botanical ingredients like polyphenols and flavanones from a Mediterranean diet can benefit well-being and healthy aging.
