Naturex’s organic turmeric extract, Turmipure, has anti-inflammatory benefits and the ability to maintain joint health, making it a suitable ingredient for healthy ageing applications.
The ingredient is 100 percent traceable, sustainable and botanically authenticated through the Naturex Pathfinder initiative, which addresses supply chain concerns.
Sourced from native Southern India in a carefully nurtured environment, and standardised up to 95 percent curcuminoids, it is produced in line with global organic standards without the use of pesticides or other chemicals. Turmipure is also available in a conventional grade that is 100 percent traceable.
Anlit has launched vegetarian turmeric (curcumin) gummies for consumers seeking curcumin supplement alternatives. These contain natural colourants, without preservatives or artificial colours.
To satisfy the growing demand for vegetarian products, the gummies are not made of conventional gelatin; instead the gummies use pectin, produced by a clean, starch-free moulding system. This allows them to be certified kosher and halal.
Coming in a gummy form to provide a beneficial curcumin dosage, both children and adult consumers are presented with a tasteful and easy solution to intake curcumin without needing to swallow tablets or capsules.
Chocolates with added curcumin, such as that launched by start-up company Chocumin, can make a healthier indulgent treat as it helps increase consumers’ intake of the ingredient.
