Lonza Lights Up Las Vegas with Science-Backed Ingredients and Formulations at SupplySide West 2019

Morristown, NJ (USA), 27 September 2019 - Lonza will be showcasing its comprehensive range of scientifically-backed ingredients and formulations for joint health, sports nutrition, men's health, prenatal and digestive health at SupplySide 2019. At booth 4339, Lonza will highlight how today's values-driven consumers seek products that help them live longer, healthier lives, that also align with their values and beliefs. Supplement manufacturers therefore need product strategies, and innovative formulations and technologies that are relevant, delight consumers, and respect the planet.

Beth Tormey, Senior Vice President, Lonza Consumer Health & Nutrition, comments: “Consumer expectations are evolving all the time. At Lonza Consumer Health & Nutrition, we are uniquely placed to support brand leaders and product designers to develop truly innovative products that will satisfy these demands and surprise and delight consumers.”

Visitors to SupplySide West can find out more about consumers' health aspirations and purchasing behavior by attending Lonza's Central Stage event “Consumer Driven Product Design” on Thursday, 17 October – 14:00-14:20 EDT.

Time for Natural Colors

As SupplySide West's Official Capsule Sponsor, Lonza will also present its leading capsule and encapsulation technologies including its new clean-label colored capsules. Using capsules made from hypromellose (HPMC) and water only, and colors sourced from plant-based foods, Lonza's Vcaps® Plus Purple Carrot capsules are the ideal solution for supplement brands looking to create unique visual appeal with a more natural capsule. In Canada, Lonza's Vcaps® Plus Blue Spirulina colored capsules are also available.

Also being introduced at SupplySide West 2019 is Lonza's Vcaps® Plus White Opal™ clean-label plant-based capsules. Offering a Titanium Dioxide-free formula, the capsules can be used outside of the US, by customers exporting to Europe and other regions.

Dosage Form Innovation

Offering advanced delivery solutions to challenging customer and consumer needs, Lonza's innovative technologies address product bioavailability (Licaps® Liquid-filled capsules), achieve modified / targeted release (DUOCAP® capsules, DRcaps™ capsules and lipid multiparticulates) and improve consumer experience. Furthermore, its plant-based capsule portfolio presents high performance clean-label solutions for even the most discerning consumers and is on showcase via consumer-driven product concepts. Made from tapioca, which is naturally fermented into pullulan, Plantcaps® capsules are a more natural alternative and offer the best plant-based oxygen barrier on the market, protecting sensitive ingredients.

Science in Motion™

Lonza is also underwriting the SSW Sports Nutrition Summit on Wednesday, 16 October 09:00-17:00 EDT. Aligned with this event, its Science in Motion™ ingredients and concepts will be highlighted, including new Oceanix™ marine phytoplankton for peak physical performance and recovery.
