PHILADELPHIA, Pa (PRWEB) September 27, 2016
FMC Corporation’s Health and Nutrition business announced today it will showcase solutions for a stronger, more effective tablet and capsule, ingredients that enable the perfect gummie and concentrations of Omega-3 at this year’s Supply Side West trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Oct. 4 – 8.
Featured in this year’s booth will be FMC’s industry-leading pharmaceutical binder, Avicel®, its carrageenan-based soft gel capsule technology, SeaGel®, the world leading Epax® brand of concentrated marine Omega-3 fatty acids and natural colors and carrageenan solutions for a perfect gummie supplement. FMC also will unveil a new product that enables an improved sensory experience for nutraceutical consumers.
“Trade shows like Supply Side West are the perfect stage for FMC to highlight our product expertise in a wide range of applications,” said Eric Norris, President, FMC Health and Nutrition. “We have a long history in products like Avicel, SeaGel, Epax, carrageenan and natural colors, but it’s through consistent innovation that we’re able to customize solutions for new applications while utilizing FMC’s proven supply chain and high quality raw materials. The new nutraceutical product we’re debuting is a testament to our dedication to innovation, as we truly believe this solution will keep customers one step ahead of market demands and ultimately enable their continued success.”
Avicel is a customizable binder solution for smaller, more effective tablets pioneered by FMC more than 50 years ago. SeaGel offers customers an effective alternative to gelatin, yielding a vegetarian capsule that delivers unmatched strength in customizable options. Epax is a pharmaceutical–strength ingredient suitable for premium supplement brands, with more than 80 percent EPA and DHA fatty acids. FMC Natural Colors align perfectly with popular flavor selections without affecting texture or taste, and the carrageenan solutions enhance texture to deliver a superior gummie.
FMC Health and Nutrition leverages its broad portfolio, commitment to collaboration, global footprint and deep technical expertise to help guide customers in the nutrition, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries to customized solutions that meet their unique needs and offer sustained success.
