FMC BioPolymer has unveiled its new health and nutrition product portfolio, positioned as a complement to nature-based nutritional solutions for the food ingredient, supplement and cosmetic markets. As a global player in seaweed production, FMC recognized compounds found in seaweed, including polysaccharides and carotenoids, had potential in the global health and nutrition marketplace. This new product portfolio grew from the opportunity to use FMC’s existing raw materials and the company’s 65+ years of experience in harvesting seaweed to provide product performance for customers in the global food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
The portfolio consists of four key health and nutrition products: MaQBerry brand extract, a rich antioxidant; Nutraesterol, a blend of unesterified plant sterols and stanols (phytosterols); Nutricol HN glucomannan, a natural, soluble dietary fiber; and Protasea fucoidan, a naturally derived brown seaweed extract.
