Kaneka Pharma Europe is highlighting new applications for two ingredients: Ubiquinol - the active form of coenzyme Q10 with higher bioavailability - and the liquorice extract Glavonoid, which is said to help reduce visceral fat.
Ubiquinol supports the body's respiratory chain, which makes it important for performance.
Peter Lambrechts, business development manager at Kaneka Pharma Europe, says: "Both the efficiency and the safety of the ingredient have been proven in numerous studies. With its broad variety of health benefits, Kaneka QH Ubiquinol enables nutritional supplement and functional food manufacturers to target a wide spectrum of consumers."
The product can be used in soft gel capsules, pellets and sticks, and foodstuffs such as chewing gum.
Kaneka says its novel food-approved liquorice extract Glavonoid helps fight visceral fat and can be used for weight management in food supplements and beverages based on milk, yogurt, fruit and vegetables. It can also be included in sports products and for healthy ageing.
