FrieslandCampina Ingredients will return to SupplySide West where they will be championing athletes’ performance and well-being with its game-changing Biotis® Fermentis that combines the power of protein, prebiotics and probiotics with fermentation to activate the gut-muscle axis. Visitors can also experience delicious gut health gummies and discover FrieslandCampina Ingredients’ plant-based portfolio.

Exercise can strengthen the gut microbiome, reduce inflammation and boost energy levels, but intense training and dietary habits associated with heavy training can cause a variety of gastrointestinal issues, affecting an athlete’s overall well-being and performance.

At SupplySide West, FrieslandCampina Ingredients will showcase its new Biotis® Fermentis – a first-of-a-kind ingredient that combines proteins, prebiotics and probiotics, enhancing their properties by fermenting them together. This synergistic solution was specifically developed to target the gut-muscle axis, enabling brands to create innovative products that support digestive comfort, fuel energy and stimulate muscle protein synthesis. In a trial with 150 recreational athletes, 80% self-reported improved satisfaction with their physical well-being after three weeks of taking Biotis® Fermentis daily.

Combining efficacy with enjoyment, FrieslandCampina Ingredients’ Good to Gut Prebiotic Gummy concept demonstrates the versatility of the company’s purest ever prebiotic ingredient – Biotis® GOS-OP High Purity. With a galacto-oligosaccharide (GOS) content of over 90%, Biotis® GOS-OP High Purity is effective in doses as low as 2 grams, opening up new opportunities for brands to stand out in the functional gummy space.

Today, the plant-based market is proliferating, with a rise in the number of people becoming vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian, especially among younger generations. In North America, over half of consumers say they follow a flexitarian diet, mixing and matching animal proteins alongside meat and dairy alternatives.

FrieslandCampina Ingredients is helping brands captivate this generation of consumers with Plantaris™, its range of plant-based proteins. Visitors are invited to taste the company’s Plantaris™ pea and faba bean protein drink concepts designed to overcome challenges such as taste and dispersibility, enabling manufacturers to craft tasty and nutritious solutions that boost protein intake.

Said Vicky Davies, Global Marketing Director for Performance, Active & Medical Nutrition at FrieslandCampina Ingredients: “We’re putting performance and active nutrition center stage at SupplySide West this year. Biotis® Fermentis is a first-of-its-kind solution for boosting athletic performance and overall well-being that has already had great success in our consumer and trial. We’re excited to introduce this innovative new ingredient to the North American market as part of our mission to give people access to the specialised nutrition they need to get the most out of life, always.”  

Added Auke Zeilstra, Managing Director, North America at FrieslandCampina Ingredients: “It’s always an inspiring experience to attend SupplySide West and see what’s next in the nutraceutical industry. I’m excited to show how our purest ever prebiotic ingredient can be formulated into delicious and efficacious gummies that also taste great. We’re also looking forward to showcasing to the U.S. market just how good high-quality plant-based nutrition can taste.”   For more visit Las Vegas for SupplySide West from 25-26 October, stand #1617 or frieslandcampinaingredients.com
