Company spotlighting UC-II undenatured collagen and plant-based, food colored capsules.

Booth G10
 
Lonza will highlight its integrated health and nutrition solutions for different life stages at this year’s Vitafoods Europe, where it will focus on supporting mobility across all ages. At booth G10, Lonza will present its latest ready-to-go innovation concepts featuring UC-II undenatured type II collagen for joint health, in combination with other trending ingredients.
 
As the show’s Official Capsule Sponsor, Lonza will also be unveiling new additions to its portfolio of unique clean-label dosage forms. Thanks to the introduction of the Capsugel Vcaps Plus Red Radish and Spicy Yellow capsules, an expanding spectrum of plant-based, food colored capsules will soon be available for supplement brands looking to create bright, visually distinctive products.
 
Moving with the Times
With seven out of 10 European supplement users now seeking joint health products, Lonza’s Moving with the Times platform centers around its UC-II ingredient. UC-II undenatured type II collagen has been shown to have a unique mode of action that triggers the natural rebuilding of cartilage, therefore improving joint comfort, mobility, and flexibility. 
 
The small 40 mg required daily dose of the UC-II ingredient can be delivered in a small Vcaps Plus capsule, or combined with other ingredients that have complementary effects. At Booth G10, Lonza will feature a series of combination products enabled by its advanced capsule and dosage form technologies, including UC-II undenatured type II collagen with omega-3s or highly bioavailable curcumin for anti-inflammatory benefits. The UC-II ingredient can also be formulated alongside vitamin K2 in a Licaps liquid-filled hard capsule, providing an all-in-one bone and joint health solution. 
 
Lonza will review these science-based innovations featuring UC-II undenatured type II collagen during a seminar: Moving with the Times: A New Generation Joint Health Solution for Today’s Consumer, which takes place at 2:20 pm on Tuesday, May 7 in the Life Stages Theater.
 
Clean-Label Gets Colorful
A pioneer in high performance capsules, Lonza continues to bring new innovations to the European market following the launch of the industry’s first clean-label food colored capsules last year. Its vegetarian Vcaps Plus capsules can now be tinted using colored foods to achieve a vibrant Red Radish or Spicy Yellow color. 
 
Vitafoods Europe 2019 also marks the official launch of the Clean Label Alliance in Europe. As a founding member of the group in the U.S., Lonza will be working to support manufacturers in meeting evolving consumer preferences for products that have no additives or preservatives, as well as a natural, vegetarian or vegan positioning.
