NutraGenesis reformulated its Wellberry ingredient, which is a patent-pending, generally recognized as safe-affirmed functional superfruit ingredient. The new Wellberry ingredient combines superior, proprietary forms of two antioxidants: a multi-patented extract of Indian gooseberry and a new highly effective form of vitamin C called Transport C-Plus, which contains a blend of buffered vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid.
In recent years, consumers have embraced superfruits, such as pomegranate, acai, blueberry and cranberry, for their antioxidant content. However, certain cherry varietals also rank alongside the more renowned superfruits in terms of antioxidant content. Although the fruit has long been favored as a pie filling and ice cream sundae topper, cherry is still establishing itself as a beverage ingredient, but suppliers say that’s ripe for a change.
