EXTRACTION, FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF BIOACTIVES

Since 1989 iBET, a private not for profit institution, has been working to integrate and strengthen biological and biochemical knowledge into technology, and transfer it to the economy. IBET is engaged in a wide range of research activities as well as providing laboratory, technical and consultancy services to many industries ranging from agri-food to biopharma. iBET’s Food & Health Division (F&H) acts at different phases of the innovation and value-chains of nutraceuticals. The F&H team has a strong expertise in isolation and formulation (micro/nano scale) of bioactive ingredients from food and other natural sources using green technologies and eco-friendly processes, namely pressurized liquid extraction, supercritical fluid extraction, adsorption separation processes and solid-liquid extraction using biocompatible and alternative solvents (e.g. ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents).

HARNESSING THE POWER OF MUSHROOMS TO SUPPORT YOUR HEALTH. 

A new challenge of healthy supplements based in technical mushrooms.The interest of the potency of medicinal mushrooms grew naturally with the increase of modern day diseases. We now know that it is the bioactive components in mushrooms, such as beta-D-glucans and triterpens that bring to us their incredible power. However we should appreciate the fact that the kingdom of fungi has one very specific character – intelligence. So we believe we are at the beginning to actually understand what else is that mushrooms can offer.

SHIFTING FROM SYNTHETIC TO NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS. A GLOBAL TREND

The application advantages of natural antioxidants have been well-known in food market for decades. Even when certain industries systematically applied natural solutions for performance benefits, the fact is that other ones have kept the use of synthetic alternatives. The past years and the spread of illnesses related to nutritional habits have brought a generation of informed and empowered consumers, looking for healthier alternatives to traditional processed products. This has been translated to food regulations, forbidding some of the proven as prejudicial additives, and making easier for users to identify and penalise brands revealing non-recommended ones in their labels. Vitae Naturals will analyse this trend on fats and oils market, tightly linked to the emerge of new natural blend alternatives looking for the best cost-efficient rate.

ADVANTAGES OF BIOTOOLS APPLICATION TO DEVELOP NEW NUTRACEUTICALS: BIOSYNTHESIS AND IN VITRO VALIDATION OF BIOACTIVITY.

The active ingredients of nutraceutical products can be obtained by biotechnological processes, allowing for high process yields, high purity and specificity of the final ingredient. Complementarily, in vitro techniques such as the in vitro dynamic digester coupled with cell lines, are useful to test and understand the biological effects. Moreover, these technologies help to screen among different ingredients or formulations to choose the ones showing the desired bioavailability and bioactive effect.

ROS-INDUCED OXIDATIVE STRESS

ROS-induced Oxidative Stress, prevention and treatment (TetraSOD®) In as early as 1954, O2 toxicity was suggested to be mediated through Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). ROS are highly reactive oxygen-containing products of normal cellular metabolism that can cause oxidative stress by damaging cellular macromolecules. Oxidative stress triggers many health challenges and diseases, so prevention or reduction of the negative effects of ROS-induced Oxidative stress is essential for the general maintenance of good health. TetraSOD® is a scientifically proven ingredient that best suits preventive and therapeutic formulations related to oxidative stress health challenges (Physical recovery, Sport performance, Stress and Fatigue, Fertility, Joint Health, and more…). TetraSOD® is not just a SOD ingredient but a healthy functional ingredient with the most balanced composition: it contains the three antioxidative enzymes (SOD, glutathione peroxidase and catalase), essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins (C, E, B1, B2, B6, B12), minerals (Mg, P, Na, Cl, Fe, Cu), amino acids and pigments.

COLLAGEN HYDROLISATED PEPTAN

The importance of collagen in joint health has been investigated for more than 30 years. Despite the research carried out, there are certain aspects that need to be explained in depth as for example the source, the obtaining process , the type and the way of use. In this sense, Rousselot, leader in the scientific and clinical investigation about its collagen hydrolisated Peptan®, provides the latest knowledge and evidence of active peptides to understand to demonstrate the efficacy of this ingredient to guarantee a correct application.
