Zest Body is a low-calorie slimming drink containing Svetol: a decaffeinated green coffee bean extract. Svetol is said to be clinically proven to inhibit glucose-6-phosphatase and increase the rate of fat release from adipose tissue a mechanism that results in effective weight management, according to Naturex.
Svetol is now used in 100 co-branded products across the US and Canada.
Zest Body contains Talin: a natural taste profile enhancer that combines with high-intensity sweeteners such as stevia to improve the sweetness profile of low-calorie products.
Naturex has also produced a functional instant drink mix concept called Zest Power, which contains extracts of Ginseng root and Maca from Naturex's Nat healthy range. These ingredients provide a natural energy boost releasing the vitality of nature.
Naturex business unit director, Paul Janthial, said: “The instant drink mix market is big in the US but consumers often have to settle for products containing artificial ingredients. Our new Zest concepts demonstrate how manufacturers can create more natural and functional products without compromising on taste.”
