“Over the past years, we have seen a substantial increase in the prioritization of wellness and physical fitness, with people looking for functional ingredients that contribute to enjoying a longer active lifestyle. Now, as part of our continuous innovation efforts, we are proud to be the first in the market to offer our customers a functional ingredient that provides a set of benefits previously not available in sports nutrition and active aging. This type of fast energy source delivered directly to muscles is something completely new in these categories” said Dr. Emiliano Rial Verde, Vice President of Bunge Loders Croklaan Nutrition. Food companies strive to provide products that reflect their customers’ values and demands. This approach includes bringing novel, high-quality nutritious components to market. According to market research firm Mintel and global management consulting firm McKinsey, the wellness market has been rising at a pace of between 5% and 10% each year and will continue to do so. According to recent research, 79 percent of customers say wellness is vital, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, the majority of people regard sports nutrition meals and beverages as critical to their overall health, with energy being the most important advantage they seek. Bunge Loders Croklaan is aiming to match these trends with the release of NuliGo.
NuliGo is available in oil and powdered forms and is well-suited for the following three applications, according to clinical studies:
· Sports nutrition is important because it supports physical performance and post-activity recovery by supplying muscles with quick and long-lasting energy sources.
· Active Aging supports a longer active lifestyle by promoting muscular strength and maintenance.
· Medical Food Products, since it combines tolerability and energy delivery in a balanced manner.
