Join Balchem at booth #5036 at SupplySide West in Las Vegas, 25-26 October 2023, to discover the company’s latest insights and innovation in the nutraceuticals market.
Balchem, a global manufacturer of specialty ingredients for human nutrition and health (HNH), is set to showcase its latest innovations at this year’s SupplySide West exhibition, focusing on three key pillars: innovate, integrate and illuminate. The company is highlighting its plant-based powders, with plans to unveil an oat-milk-based creamer in a coffee Frappuccino prototype, which can be tasted at the booth. Championing integration across its wide range of product brands – including K2VITAL®, VitaCholine®, Albion® Minerals and OptiMSM® – Balchem also invites visitors to sample a range of new application concepts that combine multiple ingredients for enhanced benefits.
Innovate: A taste of the future
Balchem’s Powders and Cereals division is set to reveal the expansion of its lipid-based powder offering at this year’s exhibition with the launch of VitalBlend™ MCT 7202 NG – a high-energy source that enhances both texture and taste in food and beverage applications while supporting health and vitality. In addition, the company plans to debut RICHMIX® 3807 – a premium cold-water-soluble creamer that comes in different flavours and colours, perfect for popular beverages such as iced coffees, smoothies, or frozen desserts. Visitors are also invited to discover two plant-based alternatives. The first is VitalBlend™ Pea Organic 5023 – a vegan palm-oil-based pea protein creamer, suitable for use in a wide range of applications with highly potent antioxidant properties, preventing rancidity during storage. The second is RICHMIX® 4808 – a versatile, allergen-free, plant-based powder that can effectively substitute dairy-based spray-dried lipid powders in beverage formulations and resists curdling in acidic environments.
“We’re excited to unveil the launch of our new range of Powder & Cereal ingredients and to discuss formulation opportunities with our partners at SupplySide West,” comments Ria Dake, Senior Business Director Powders & Cereals at Balchem Human Nutrition and Health. “Our powders have been specially developed to tackle demanding tasks like creating vegan dishes, promoting functional health with MCT-based ingredients, and easily achieving cold water solubility for added convenience.”
Integrate: uncovering new synergies
In line with the company’s focus on product integration, Balchem plans to showcase its first-of-a-kind prototypes to inspire formulators and shape next-generation solutions that tackle multiple health categories. Combining a range of Balchem’s HNH branded ingredients, these new concepts include UpLift Mood Melts, featuring VitaCholine® to support adult cognition, an Accentuate Beauty Stick for longevity and the UpCharge Bar for enhanced performance. The company will also spotlight the synergies between Albion® Minerals and K2VITAL® DELTA, the world’s only patented microencapsulated all-trans vitamin K2 MK-7 preparation for use in combination with minerals. Encapsulated twice, the exceptional stability of K2VITAL® DELTA allows manufacturers to blend it with highly bioavailable chelated minerals, such as Albion® Minerals, without compromising efficacy.
Illuminate: Shining a light on quality, transparency & research
At the show, Balchem will also highlight its commitment to quality, transparency and research with two programs – TruQuality for K2VITAL® and TRAACS (The Real Amino Acid Chelate System) for Albion® Minerals – which have been developed with the aim of forging an ethical marketplace, where both customers and end users can trust the products they choose. As part of the TruQuality initiative, Balchem has recently joined forces with a third party-laboratory, Alkemist Labs, to address rising concerns regarding vitamin K2 quality in the US market – particularly for online channels. Together, their collective mission is to enhance transparency, authenticity and safety within the industry.
On the event’s final day, Thursday 26th October at 11.30 am, at booth #3677, Eric Ciappo, Balchem’s Strategic Development Manager, Nutrition Science, will host a presentation entitled “Unlocking the promise of health span with science-backed ingredients”. Visitors are invited to attend the session to find out more about Balchem’s most recent scientific research – including a new OptiMSM® study on hair health to inspire innovation in the beauty-from-within category and an exciting VitaCholine® study on cognition.
