Focusing on true innovation, long-term market success and cutting-edge research, the NutraIngredients-USA Awards honor the best and brightest in ingredients, finished products, companies, people, and initiatives in the nutrition and dietary supplements industry.
Commenting on being named a finalist, a spokesperson for Bio-gen Extracts (finalists in the Healthy Aging ingredient category for Lute-gen), said: “The NutraIngredients-USA Awards are the industry’s most coveted awards – similar to the Oscars!
“The awards help provide a platform to companies that have showcased true innovation, sustainable business success and cutting-edge research. Bio-gen Extracts is always thrilled to submit entries to better understand the value their ingredient brings to the industry, as it is compared with several other class-leading ingredients and products.”
“NutraIngredients-USA is a recognized voice in our industry for both innovation and trends,” said Anagenix (finalist in the prebiotic ingredient category for Livaux).
“Participation in the NutraIngredients awards allows us to pitch ourselves against the best in the industry. Review and selection by a judging panel with the sensitivity for contextual application of innovative and good science in market, goes a long way in affirming the positioning for Livaux as a whole fruit precision prebiotic for the US market.”
Hans van der Saag, CEO & Founder of Bioactor (finalist in the prebiotic ingredient category for MicrobiomeX), said: “Our goals are to get recognition from peers through publications of our clinical studies but also from the industry thanks to events like NutraIngredients-USA awards. This is why we value these awards and decided to enter NutraIngredients-USA awards 2022. This year, we decided to enter the awards in collaboration with SEPPIC Inc, our US distributor.
“Making it to the finals is a great recognition of the Bioactor team's hard work in all departments of our company and is a source of motivation to continue our efforts in the future.”
A spokesperson for Herbalist & Alchemist (finalist in the Botanical Product category for David Winston's Hawthorn Solid Extract), said: “Being a finalist for the NutraIngredients-USA awards is particularly meaningful because the publication is so respected, and the judges have such impressive qualifications.
“We know it’s a successful product because we can’t keep up with demand. We know it’s an effective product because our customers tell us so all the time. But having NutraIngredients-USA tell the world it’s one of the best botanical products means the world to all of us.”
“Being a finalist cements all the effort we've put in the last five years as a start-up”
Natasha Dhayagude, CEO of Chinova Bioworks (finalist in the Start-up category), explained: “The natural preservative space has gained traction as consumer demand for clean-label products has intensified. As an innovator in food preservation, our Chiber mushroom extract is a natural solution for companies wanting to switch from a synthetic to a clean-label preservative.
“Being a finalist cements all the effort we've put in the last five years as a start-up into bringing Chiber to the natural food, beverage, and supplement markets.”
