Strengthen your products with Divi’s vitamin D

Strengthen your products with Divi’s vitamin D

Consumer awareness for the numerous, well-documented health benefits of vitamin D has never been so high. The health crisis has further highlighted the importance of vitamin D in supporting a strong immune system. To help our customers meet the growing demand for vitamin D, we offer high potency and mini-beadlet vitamin D for use in dietary supplements and fortification of foods and beverages.

Divi’s high potency vitamin D3 for demanding applications

Our high potency vitamin D3 – Vitamin D3 500 SD – is a spray-dried powder providing 500,000 IU per g. Spray-drying is a gentle process that preserves both the integrity and the nutritional value of the product. During this process, vitamin D3 is micronized into very small particles, leading to an easy-to-handle powder. The final product exhibits excellent flowability and does not generate any dust during use. Our technology ensures constant particle size distribution and an optimized concentration, resulting in excellent content uniformity in applications such as premixes. Vitamin D3 500 SD benefits from a reliable supply thanks to stable, scalable production at a state-of-the-art plant in Germany. 

Divi’s Vitamin D3 500 SD shows excellent performance in a variety of applications. Thanks to its high potency, only small amounts are sufficient to strengthen end products, resulting for example in smaller tablets and capsules. In addition, since Vitamin D3 500 SD is very stable in applications, there is no need to add high overdosage to guarantee the label claim. Vitamin D3 500 SD shows good tableting performance and is therefore suitable for direct compression of chewable and coated tablets. It can also be used to fortify foods and drinks, as it is fully dispersible in water, fruit juices, milk and other liquids.

Divi’s Mini-Beads for outstanding stability combined with content uniformity

Our range includes also vitamin D2 and D3 mini beadlets. Divi’s exclusive micro-encapsulation process provides excellent stability and grants outstanding uniformity due to the fine particle size of the mini beadlets, about 30% finer than our regular beadlets. Our Mini-Beads cutting-edge technology generates products which are designed for application in fine powders where uniformity is a key performance parameter.

Vitamin D2 and vitamin D3 Mini-Beads are suitable for a variety of applications. Besides hard-gelatin capsules and tablets, they can also be used to fortify foods and drinks, as they are fully dispersible in liquids such as water, fruit juices and milk. Our Mini-Beads show excellent stability in applications.

Divi’s Nutraceuticals is back at Vitafoods and Supply Side West

We are happy to see you again at Vitafoods Europe and Supply Side West in 2021. We will feature our latest innovations: CaroNat, a natural beta-carotene with excellent performance in end products, a new Astaxanthin form for state-of-the-art applications, our high potency vitamin D, and much more.

CaroNat for natural food and beverage coloration

CaroNat, a naturally sourced food ingredient intended for the dark yellow to orange coloration of a variety of foods and beverages, is made from concentrated carrot juice and inherently contains beta-carotene. Our innovative production process allows the stabilization of this natural ingredient in fine powder form for easy handling and excellent stability. CaroNat provides superior performance in a wide range of applications such as beverages, instant drinks, yogurt, gummy candies, cakes, puddings, frozen desserts and many more.

Consisting only of ingredients of natural origin and manufactured without the addition of silicon dioxide, CaroNat supports brands in their transition to clean labels and allows claims such as: “No artificial color/ingredient”, “Vegetarian” or “Vegan”. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the health effects of artificial colorants. They are seeking more natural options, boosting the demand for additive-free foods and beverages. Made only from natural ingredients and delivering the desirable appearance of the final product, CaroNat allows food marketers to respond to this growing trend.

Astaxanthin: Natural antioxidant power

Our new Astaxanthin is naturally sourced from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis and is formulated with Divi’s unique CaroQuik beadlet technology. These beadlets are quickly dispersible in cold water and offer fortification opportunities for increasingly popular sticks, dispersion caps and powder canister packaging. Our astaxanthin range also includes directly compressible beadlets that can be used in tablets, but also for the fortification of foods such as cereal bars.
With today’s hectic lifestyle, more people are exposed to stress, environmental damage, unhealthy eating habits and sleep deprivation, impacting their psychological and physiological health, particularly as they age. Astaxanthin is known to be one of the most powerful antioxidants. The health benefits of astaxanthin are supported by a compelling body of scientific studies. Astaxanthin is naturally occurring in foods such as salmon; unfortunately, the levels in the diet are not comparable to dose levels recommended to experience the most health benefits, making supplementation and food fortification worthwhile.

High potency vitamin D3 for a variety of applications

As formulation expert of fat-soluble vitamins, we offer a comprehensive and unique portfolio of vitamin D2 and D3 forms in different concentrations and forms. Our high potency vitamin D3 – Vitamin D3 500 SD – is a spray-dried powder delivering 500’000 IU per g. Our trials demonstrate that this concentration is the highest possible one in order to guarantee optimal uniformity, especially in premixes, while offering a remarkable potency and excellent performance in applications such as tablets, hard-shell capsules, dairy, cereals and beverages.
Our broad vitamin D portfolio includes spray-dried powders, microencapsulated beadlets, mini beadlets and oil solutions, which exhibit excellent uniformity and stability in both liquid and dry applications, whether dietary supplements (tablets, effervescent tablets, hard-shell capsules, softgels, powders, sachets), fortified foods (dairy, cereals, bread) or beverages (fruit juices, clear drinks). Our range also includes silicon dioxide-free product forms.
