Evolva to showcase its products at Fi India in New Delhi August 22nd – 24th

8 August 2016 – Evolva will be at the upcoming Fi India conference at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, India 22 – 24 August exhibiting its key functional ingredient resveratrol as well as its citrus flavours, valencene and nootkatone. Visit Stand C43 at Fi India (#FiIndia) to find out more about the healthy-ageing potential of resveratrol or the food and beverage citrus flavours valencene and nootkatone. Taste some delicious Swiss chocolate enriched with our resveratrol. Samples on hand will include resveratrol formulated in capsules, gums, and Swiss chocolate. Flavourists are welcome too and we will have some smelling samples available.

Resveratrol is an ingredient found in red grapes, blueberries, nuts and other plants. There is already a significant body of evidence showing that resveratrol can produce a positive impact on healthy-ageing variables like heart health, bone health, and blood-glucose control. Scientists have also found evidence that resveratrol had a positive effect on key biomarkers related to slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in addition to mimicking the age decelerating results of a calorie-restricted diet. Evolva’s resveratrol comes from an innovative fermentation source which produces a high-purity ingredient free of any environmental contaminants.

Valencene is an orange flavour and fragrance (F&F) ingredient used in food and beverage, personal care and household products. It is present at very low concentrations in the peel of oranges and responsible for their characteristic smell. Similarly, nootkatone is an F&F ingredient that occurs in grapefruit and responsible for their characteristic smell. Until now, the use of valencene and nootkatone has been restricted by their high cost, limited supply and inconsistent product quality. By brewing these flavours from sugar, rather than extracting it from the fruits, allows scaling-up in a sustainable and affordable manner.

Evolva recently announced setting up in Singapore, with a focus on commercial operations to develop sales and support customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
