To meet the growing demand of athletes, coaches and all those concerned about banned substances in sports supplements, NSF International has created the Certified for Sport™ Program. This new program is designed to minimize the risk that a dietary supplement or sports nutrition product contains banned substances, through a five-step process. Only when these five requirements have been met, is NSF certification awarded and the NSF Mark will appear on the product. The new program has been recommended by such organisations as Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. Put simply, the NSF program directly addresses concern in the athletic community, and provides a solution.


Leading flavour manufacturer, Quest, is launching a groundbreaking method, combining best practice research models, to predict and design consumer-preferred flavours across the world. In an approach believed to be a first for the industry, Quest’s LISA method is pioneering because it combines data on the flavour components that determine consumer liking with data on sensory attributes (like creaminess, juiciness, ripeness or sweetness) and on consumer preferences. There are significant customer benefits, including a transformation of the flavour development process, improving the efficiency and speed to market through a more rational approach and boosting consumer preference for brands between 20% and 30% in some applications.

Fibre Fortified Food, as the name suggests, is a summation of the benefits of dietary fibres as part of a healthy diet. Anita Benech re-asserts the importance of dietary fibres, in the fight against obesity, among other health issues. She introduces Acacia dietary fibre, a purified, water-soluble acacia powder, with more than 80% fibre content. It is from 100% vegetable source, and due to its low viscosity and high solubility in cold water, highly concentrated solutions can be prepared for use in food recipes, which do not affect sensory properties of finished products.
