SupplySide West 2019
Our theme for this year’s SupplySide West—Formulate for Performance & Lifestyle—is inspired by trends in functionality, flavor, and consumer need state. We’ll be demonstrating our expertise in complete product development and custom taste solutions through our two sample platforms: Performance Nutrition and Lifestyle Nutrition.
We’ve designed products for every workout need of active consumers, each of which uses a blend of nutrients proven to support different activity stages:
- Pre-workout pectin gummies (sour watermelon and green apple)
- Intra-workout natural electrolyte beverage (cucumber lime)
- Post-workout protein recovery drink (fruity cereal milk)
We’ll also be sharing our targeted wellness products that exemplify convenience, specialized eating, plant-based nutrition, and the food-as-medicine trend:
- Keto brownies (dark chocolate)
- Vegan meal replacement drinks (spiced turmeric golden milk)
- Immune support cookies (peanut butter chocolate chip)
For sport nutrition companies, wellness brands, and those with taste or formulation challenges, we can help you overcome off-flavors exhibited by the active ingredients with taste improvement systems such as masking and modulation. Visit us at SupplySide West booth 2859 to taste and experience the latest in personalized and lifestyle nutrition.
