Vitafoods Europe 2024: Nexira Focuses on Metabolic Health

Vitafoods Europe 2024: Nexira Focuses on Metabolic Health

This year at Vitafoods Europe, Nexira will focus on a hot topic: metabolic health. Nexira will launch a new product on glycemia modulation and introduce a new study, while confirming its strong positioning on healthy weight. A special highlight will also be done on Nexira’s Acacia Program and low-carbon strategy: Nexira is finalist at the Nutraingredients Awards in the Sustainability category!

Today’s consumers take a holistic approach to weight management, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. A strong link and a complementarity exist between healthy weight and glycemia management. Metabolic health encompasses healthy weight and blood sugar management. With an historic leadership on weight management market, Nexira offers a full range of natural ingredients for healthy weight. To complete its portfolio, Nexira will introduce a new organic and carbon neutral prebiotic product, inavea™ cinnamon & acacia for glycemia modulation, and a new study on VinOgrape™ Plus on gut microbiome modulation.

New Product Launch Targets Glycemia Modulation

inavea™ Cinnamon & Acacia is the new addition in the inavea™ range, organic and carbon neutral. The new ingredient is a combination of Acacia fiber and Cinnamon extract standardized to 25% polyphenols. Nexira has demonstrated its prebiotic activity with a gut microbiota modulation, a significant increase of SCFA such as propionate and an enrichment in healthy bacteria such as Parabacteroides distasonis. Both propionate and Parabacteroides distasonis are recognized healthy markers of metabolic health. An in vivo study has also shown a synergistic effect of inavea™ Cinnamon & Acacia with a positive and significant modulation of glycemia and insulinemia.

New Study Unveils New Health Benefits of VinOgrape™Plus

VinOgrape™ Plus, launched at Vitafoods 2023, is a natural grape extract rich in powerful antioxidant compounds. VinOgrape™ Plus has shown proven prebiotic effect by significantly modulating the gut microbiome profile. VinOgrape™ Plus has also significantly increased the abundance of Akkermansia muciniphila, suggesting a beneficial role in metabolic disorder. This year, Nexira will present new study results demonstrating a significant production of SCFA, including acetate and an improvement of the diversity index.
