“This new agreement is in perfect correlation with Frutarom’s commitment to being the preferred partner for tasty and healthy successes,” said Valerie Barrois, segment manager of functional food for Frutarom Health. “Our proven experience and knowhow in bringing healthy ingredients to food applications, coupled with our advance formulations capabilities, will enable us to develop extensively the food market for AB-Fortis.”
AB-Fortis has been developed for AB-Biotics traded on the Spanish Alternative Investment Market (MAB).
“This agreement marks a significant milestone for AB-Biotics, since the functional food market is a priority for our company,” said Miquel Angel co-CEO of AB-Biotics.
AB-Fortis is a patented encapsulated iron system that provides the recommended daily amount of iron in a single dose, while avoiding the metallic taste and classic side effects of standard iron supplements, such as dental darkening, gastrointestinal upset or nausea.
The encapsulated iron can be incorporated into fat-rich matrices, such as milk or yogurt, without causing oxidation. In addition, AB-Fortis resists high temperatures and can be included in formulations across any pH level.
