Over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, immunity boosting has evolved from a winter topic to an all-year-round topic. This issue will also create a lasting demand among consumers. From acerola to zinc and vitamins – we have the right ingredients for strong products.
During this autumn, especially, it will be extremely important to strengthen the immune system to fight off colds and flu. Because people with compromised health are especially sensitive to cold pathogens, a course of preventive measures is recommended for those people.
The use of vitamin C combined with high dosages of zinc has proven to be one of the best product combinations for such prevention. For this purpose, rather than employing pure ascorbic acid, Im-pag recommends using the power of the acerola cherry instead. Acerola cherries contain 30 times more vitamin C than oranges. In addition, the fruit contains other vitamins such as A, B2, and B6, as well as numerous minerals. For the zinc component in this combination, we recommend zinc cit-rate: this zinc salt has high bioavailability for humans and contains the right percentage of zinc, at 31%. While zinc citrate is less soluble than some other salts, such as zinc lactate, the product is still soluble enough to be able to produce clear drinks. That means you have a large range of applica-tion possibilities open to you.
We also have other fruit juices and extracts in our portfolio, such as ginger, ginseng, cat’s claw, and carqueja, which are all associated with health benefits.
Stay healthy and prevent colds as we roll into the cold season!
Vitamin and mineral premixes
Impag can make life easier for our customers in the industries of health products, sports nutrition, or generally enriched foods with vitamin and mineral premixes. For relatively complex formula-tions, especially, it is often difficult to develop a suitable recipe and to acquire the individual low-dosed raw materials in the necessary quantities. We reduce the complexity of R&D and procure-ment for you with mixtures tailored specifically to your product.

The composition of food supplements and sports foods increasingly includes bovine colostrum. This is the early milk produced by mother cows for the first five days after calving. This early milk is the natural way in which the calf is immunized immediately after birth. Thus, in addition to the usu-al components such as proteins, enzymes, sugars, vitamins, and minerals, the milk contains lym-phocytes and antibodies (immunoglobulins) that have been proven to boost the immune system and offer a level of protection against infectious diseases. Impag has colostrum in a variety of quali-ties from European sources in its range. We would be happy to advise you personally on this.
