Palm fruits

The right mix of carotenoids

Customized blends

Market challenge:

Results from epidemiological studies over the last 30 years consistently demonstrate an inverse relationship between carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetable consumption and the risk of chronic disease. Unfortunately, human dietary intake of fruit and vegetables is repeatedly found to be inadequate for optimal health (WHO technical report).1

Furthermore, the market requires:

  • A secure and constant quality and consistency over time

  • Less inconvenience and handling, in order to be able to focus on core business

  • A limit on the number of carotene raw materials necessary in the specific application 

Chr. Hansen’s solution:

Our carotene product range provides a full spectrum of the most abundant carotenoids in the human diet. A standard varied diet will typically include between 20 and 50 different carotenoids (out of 600 identified so far). Our mixed carotenoids contain alpha- and beta-carotene from oil-palm fruits, lycopene from tomato, and lutein and zeaxanthin from marigold flowers.

Benefit from our NUTRIPHY® product range:

Customized carotenoids provide a variety of carotenoids, besides promoting general well-being.

Selected benefits include:

  • Provitamin A activity

  • Help in maintaining healthy skin

  • Being a powerful antioxidant

Studies indicate that a mixture of carotenoids have a better antioxidative effect than any single carotenoid.
