Functional food include products claimed to have a health-promoting or disease-preventing property beyond the basic function of supplying nutrients.
In iBET, we identify and isolate functional ingredients from several botanical sources, using efficient clean processes and formulate new products by incorporation of high value natural health-promoting ingredients (antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer compounds, anti-fungal and anti-microbial agents, …). We have specialized teams in chemical and biological characterization of functional products and final formulations are always optimized in terms of stability/shelf-life and bioavailability.
Due to the EC regulatory restrictions, the emergent industries of nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, nutricosmetics and functional food products increasingly need scientific support for health claims. Within this context, iBET is a favored partner for providing support in the construction of Scientific Dossiers need for the authorization of health claims and the preparation of application for submission to European Comission and EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) .
