Key highlights at Vitafoods Europe 2024

  • AvailOm® omega-3 powder and Boswellia serrata ingredient concept. This unique combination is targeted for joint health applications. Its efficacy and synergistic mechanism have been proven through in vitro and human intervention studies. The concept combines Evonik’s superior formulation expertise and scientific evidence for efficacy.
  • IN VIVO BIOTICS™ concepts: A recent study showed the superior gluten-degrading efficacy of IN VIVO BIOTICS™ gluten tolerance, also in comparison to conventional enzyme-based gluten digestion aids.
  • Expansion of Healthberry® 865/900 to the U.S. market. With the FDA registration of Evonik’s Norwegian facility Medpalett, Healthberry® is now sold in bulk to dietary supplement companies with formulation capabilities and partners in the U.S. for further development and commercialization.
