Manufacturer of healthy nutrition ingredients Frutarom Health has released Organic SoyLife Complex, a new range of organic soy ingredients.
Naturally rich in isoflavones, a natural compound found in plants and plant-based foods, Organic SoyLife Complex is sourced from the soy germ that sits at the heart of the soy bean. Soy germs are not used in the production of soy milk, so manufacturing of SoyLife Complex both makes use of a by-product and decreases food waste.
The ingredient is particularly high in concentrations of daidzein, one of the most active constituents in soy, known for its antioxidant and phytoestrogenic properties.
Organic SoyLife Complex has been granted BE-BIO-01 organic certification by Certisys. According to Frutarom Health, which is a division of US-based producer International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., the new range was developed in response to increasing demand from consumers for organic products.
“With the introduction of the organic label, we believe we have an ingredient that fulfils many current demands of consumers who are putting increasing value on trust and transparency when making their purchasing decisions,” said Laetitia Petrussa, product manager for Frutarom Health.
“Organically sourced ingredients are recognized for those values and are increasingly seen as a healthy and ethical choice, both in terms of nutrition and environmental impact. This stamp of assurance will become even more paramount as our understanding of organic demands and needs deepens.”
SoyLife Complex is part of Frutarom’s SoyLife ingredients range, which the company claims are a naturally high source of micronutrients. According to Frutarom, these micronutrients work in combination with the high amounts of isoflavones to promote bone strength and cardiovascular health, as well as alleviating menopausal symptoms, and improving gut health and skin care.
