We give your products added health value

“Better for me” is one of the big trends that consumers are following. The focus of their attention is on keen health awareness and a need for health-promoting foods and beverages. We offer customised micronutrient premixes that give your beverages healthy added value. Whether fruit juices, water, instant beverages, soft drinks, teas or other lifestyle drinks, we adapt each formulation to your product concept.

At our Stern-Technology Centres our scientists and technologist carry out research on the interaction between the different micronutrients and other ingredients. Here, the emphasis is on, for instance, sensory properties and solubility. Thanks to our many years’ experience we can support you in the successful development of your product.

Beverages pose a special challenge when it comes to fortification with vitamins and minerals. The most important criterion is that the ingredients are readily soluble and do not react with each other. There must be no negative impact on flavour, colour, pH or mouthfeel. Our many years’ experience in handling micronutrients and high-quality raw materials are, therefore, the key to the high quality of end products.

Boosting the immune system

Vitamin D promotes the production of what are known as defensins that have antimicrobial effect during an immune reaction. In addition, vitamins C and E, zinc and selenium protect against oxidative stress.

Fitness and energy

B vitamins are important for energy supply and performance whilst magnesium, calcium and potassium contribute to optimum muscle functioning and renewal. Essential and branched-chain amino acids are, in contrast, necessary for muscle formation and other metabolic processes.

Mental health

The timely taking of antioxidative micronutrients can counteract age-related mental decline. Vitamin C and zinc support the defence mechanisms. B vitamins, above all folic acid, help to improve the memory capacity of older people and ginseng can boost performance and concentration.
