We know how important it is to our customers to have assurance of receiving high-quality products produced in conformance to the relevant monograph and Good Manufacturing Practices. These certifications will provide them additional peace of mind.

New clinical study outcomes, a new digestive health solution, new food product concepts and a newly expanded value proposition all promise to raise the profile of DuPont Nutrition & Health at SupplySide West (Las Vegas, November 7-8).

Buzzworthy HOWARU® Restore

A key highlight of the event will be a presentation by Greg Leyer of DuPont Nutrition & Health, during which he will discuss outcomes of new clinical research regarding the effect of HOWARU® Restore — from the DuPont™ Danisco® range of premium probiotics — in lowering the risk of antibiotic-associated gastrointestinal symptoms. “Probiotics: New Clinical Data and the Path to Better Digestive Health” will be presented Wed., Nov. 7, 10 a.m. CST in Casanova 501-502.

Renewed focus on the effectiveness of HOWARU® Restore comes closely on the heels of accolades the product has helped earn for Symbion’s Faulding® Probiotics. The probiotic recently came out on top as Product of the Year (Adult Health category) in Australia’s biggest independent consumer survey, which canvasses 7,000 consumers.

“We’re proud of the strong product acceptance we’ve helped our customer achieve with HOWARU® Restore,” said Scott Bush, vice president – Probiotics, “and view this award as further testament to the commercial success offered by the DuPont condition-specific HOWARU® premium probiotic range.”

New Certification for OsmoAid™ Pending

Attention also will be on OsmoAid™, the company’s branded lactitol product with proven efficacy in easing occasional constipation. The product, which is suitable for all age groups and well tolerated compared to alternatives, provides an effective and affordable therapy for those seeking a long-term solution. As the world’s only manufacturer of lactitol, DuPont Nutrition & Health has completed the audit process for cGMP certification at its Thomson, IL, plant and expects that certification before year-end. In addition, a certificate of suitability (CEP) from the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Healthcare (EDQM) has been granted for the product.

“We know how important it is to our customers to have assurance of receiving high-quality products produced in conformance to the relevant monograph and Good Manufacturing Practices,” said James Dedman, senior director, Product Management for DuPont Nutrition & Health. “These certifications will provide them additional peace of mind.”

Innovative Concepts Demonstrated

Visitors to the DuPont booth will be able to talk with experts about health-promoting ingredients from the DuPont™ Danisco® range and the Solae™ portfolio, and experience great-tasting sample applications, including the Dark Chocolate Pomegranate TasteFULL Bar, which combines soy protein with polydextrose for effective weight management, delivering 10g of protein and 6g of fiber.

Also being featured will be Cucumber Dill Greek Yogurt Dip, a perfect platform for providing the proven digestive benefits of HOWARU® Premium Probiotics. This concept taps into the extraordinary popularity and appeal of Greek yogurt, and extends it to create a healthier dip.
