What’s more appealing: a luscious, flavorful beverage, or a luscious, flavorful beverage that’s also a rich source of added nutrition?
Whether your target consumers want a juice-based or dairy-based beverage, or even a dairy alternative, you can be sure they’ll love the idea of a delectable drink that’s a rich source of calcium. Corbion offers the fortification solutions, expertise and calculation tools to help you deliver that nutrient boost along with all the sensory attributes consumers want: delicious flavor, an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel and a stable, sediment-free product.
Studies show that consumption of calcium – an important nutrient for good bone health – is especially low in some regions of the world; globally, milk consumption continues to wane and bone diseases such as osteoporosis are becoming more prevalent. Fortifying your beverage with added calcium responds to this growing consumer need and provides a compelling way to differentiate your products in the market.
