Polyphenol-C™: Non-GMO Vitamin-C with Fruit Polyphenols
ENI is proud to be one of the few suppliers of Certified Non-GMO Vitamin-C. Because Vitamin-C is manufactured from corn, independent Non-GMO certification is an important value-added plus in this category.
For example, a 2015 survey found that 48% of global consumers are very concerned about GMO’s in their diet, and 87% of consumers think that non-GMO products are inherently healthier. Specifically, 42% of supplement users feel that Non-GMO is an important factor in their supplement purchases1. Our Vitamin-C products allow you to address this important market segment.
Polyphenols for Health
Polyphenols, found in fruits and berries, are the most abundant source of antioxidants in our diets. Research into these compounds is complex because it is estimated that over 8,000 polyphenols exist in nature. However research over the last 20 years in particular has pointed to their benefits as anti-oxidants and in cardiovascular health.
Polyphenol sources in Polyphenol-C™
The following fruits are used as sources of polyphenols for Polyphenol-C™:
- Whole grape
Ideal for Supplement and Beverage Use
Polyphenol-C thus delivers a uniquely concentrated blend of nature’s premium antioxidants with 60% Vitamin-C (ascorbic acid or calcium ascorbate) and 10% fruit polyphenols. It is an easy ingredient to develop into capsule or tablet formats, and works equally well to activate and elevate drink and smoothie mixes.
