Companies turn to freeze drying for stable nutraceuticals
As health foods and supplements grow in popularity around Europe, European Freeze Dry Country Manager Diana Morris explores the opportunities that freeze drying systems provide to nutraceuticals producers.
Nutraceutical suppliers are turning to modern food processing methods such as freeze drying to produce the latest health supplements.
Using food products for their health benefits is not a new phenomenon. Common messages around eating fruit and vegetables to maintain our vitamin and nutritional intake have been around for years.
However, scientists are increasingly finding new methods to use different ingredients to offer health benefits, such as preventing flu, reducing obesity or increasing fertility, which can improve our quality of life.
The demand for nutraceuticals is growing. It is expected that the nutraceuticals market in Europe will be worth $108 billion by 2027. As we all focus more attention on our own health, natural supplements are rising in popularity – particularly amongst those following a superfood diet.
At European Freeze Dry, we continue to work with nutraceutical suppliers to gently freeze dry products so that they can be consumed, either in a different format such as a powder or at a more intensive dose.
