Frutarom Health launches new soy isoflavones with zero waste
SoyLife Complex designed for supplement capsules, tablets and functional foods and beverages
Frutarom Health, a division of International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., announced the release of a new range of organic SoyLife Complex soy isoflavones that are sustainably produced with zero waste. SoyLife Complex is a soy ingredient sourced from a selected soy variety that naturally is rich in isoflavones and produced from the soy germ that sits at the heart of the soy bean, further enhancing the isoflavonal concentration, the company says. Through natural selection, the ingredient is standardized in isoflavones and contains high concentrations of daidzein, one of the most active constituents in soy recognized for its powerful antioxidant and phytoestrogenic properties, it adds. “With the introduction of the organic label, we believe we have an ingredient that fulfills many current demands of consumers who are putting increasing value on trust and transparency when making their purchasing decisions,” said Laetitia Petrussa, project manager for Frutarom Health, in a statement. “Organically sourced ingredients are recognized for those values and are increasingly seen as a healthy and ethical choice, both in terms of nutrition and environmental impact. This stamp of assurance will become even more paramount as our understanding of organic demands and needs deepens.” SoyLife Complex is selected, purified, and heat-treated to ensure stability of the active ingredients, and then milled into different granulations to fit into various applications, including traditional supplement capsules and tablets, and functional food and beverage options, the company says. SoyLife also is non-GMO, vegan, kosher and halal-certified, and is suitable for all clean-label formulations.
