Choosing the right development partner and solutions provider for your nutraceutical products

What are you looking for?

You’re looking for support in a particular health area

Several high profile health conditions offer huge opportunities for nutraceuticals companies today due to their prevalence and amenability to preventative strategies through nutrition:

  • Cardiovascular health
  • Cognitive health
  • Gut health
  • Liver health
  • Diabetes

By working with Evonik, you’re accessing the scientific attention to detail that today’s consumers expect. Why? Because we bring over 60 year heritage in the pharmaceutical industry’s stringent formulation requirements, and we apply the same exacting standards to nutraceuticals.

You’re looking for a reliable supplier of specific quality ingredients

Evonik Health Care has a range of advanced food ingredients that offer your brand differentiation and science-based health benefits. Here are just two examples:

Our ingredients are not only effective. They open the door to exciting opportunities for innovative single or multi-ingredient products or functional foods that can be highly attractive to your target market. The opportunities for inventiveness and differentiation are almost limitless.

You’re looking for support with developing your next formulation

You’re looking to enhance your product

Let’s take swallowability as one example of a convenience factor that can affect consumer choice. After all, if your customer finds it difficult to swallow your supplement then they are unlikely to purchase it again. In one study, 95% of consumers agreed that ease of swallowing affected their preferences toward a particular oral solid dosage form.1

You can say goodbye to bulky capsules by choosing high potency ingredients in a solid formulation that is compressible into sensibly-sized dosage forms. Functional coatings can further help to enhance swallowability by reducing stickiness of a tablet as it journeys through the mouth and throat.

From making raw ingredients more palatable, to modifying the release profile for maximum clinical effect, take a closer look at our EUDRAGUARD® toolbox of nutraceutical coatings. Choosing the right coating can enhance performance and preference for your dietary supplements. And the benefits of a clever coating can go much further than improving swallowability:

  • Taste and odor masking
  • Gastric resistance
  • Moisture protection
  • Sustained or delayed release
  • Targeted colonic delivery
