Lonza will be showcasing its range of scientifically-backed ingredients and formulations for joint health, sports nutrition, men’s health, prenatal and digestive health at SupplySide West Booth 4339.
The company will highlight how today’s values-driven consumers seek products that help them live longer, healthier lives, that also align with their values and beliefs. Supplement manufacturers therefore need product strategies, and innovative formulations and technologies that are relevant, delight consumers, and respect the planet.
Beth Tormey, Senior Vice President, Lonza Consumer Health & Nutrition, commented: “Consumer expectations are evolving all the time. At Lonza Consumer Health & Nutrition, we are uniquely placed to support brand leaders and product designers to develop truly innovative products that will satisfy these demands and surprise and delight consumers.”
Visitors to SupplySide West can find out more about consumers’ health aspirations and purchasing behavior by attending Lonza’s Central Stage event “Consumer Driven Product Design” on Thursday, Oct. 17, 2 to 2:30.
Time for Natural Colors
As SupplySide West’s Official Capsule Sponsor, Lonza will also present its leading capsule and encapsulation technologies including its new clean-label colored capsules. Using capsules made from hypromellose (HPMC) and water only, and colors sourced from plant-based foods, Lonza’s Vcaps Plus Purple Carrot capsules are the ideal solution for supplement brands looking to create unique visual appeal with a more natural capsule. In Canada, Lonza’s Vcaps Plus Blue Spirulina colored capsules are also available.
Also being introduced at SupplySide West 2019 is Lonza’s Vcaps Plus White Opal clean-label plant-based capsules. Offering a titanium dioxide-free formula, the capsules can be used outside of the U.S., by customers exporting to Europe and other regions.
Dosage Form Innovation
Offering advanced delivery solutions to challenging customer and consumer needs, Lonza’s innovative technologies address product bioavailability (Licaps liquid-filled capsules), achieve modified/targeted release (DUOCAP capsules, DRcaps capsules and lipid multiparticulates) and improve consumer experience. Furthermore, its plant-based capsule portfolio presents high performance clean-label solutions for even the most discerning consumers and is on showcase via consumer-driven product concepts. Made from tapioca, which is naturally fermented into pullulan, Plantcaps capsules are a more natural alternative and offer the best plant-based oxygen barrier on the market, protecting sensitive ingredients.
Science in Motion
Lonza is also underwriting the SSW Sports Nutrition Summit on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 9 am to 5 pm. Aligned with this event, its Science in Motion ingredients and concepts will be highlighted, including new Oceanix marine phytoplankton for peak physical performance and recovery. UC-II undenatured type II collagen is another highlight following the recent launch of Lonza’s Lifestyle in Motion campaign, a major consumer education drive for joint health. Lonza will also host a sports-themed supplier session on Friday, Oct. 18, 1:30 to 1:45 EDT at the Supplier Presentation Theater, Booth 1266.
