BBC World News Recognises Seaweed as the Future in Food Innovation

Dr Craig Rose, Founder and MD of Seaweed & Co., was invited to talk on BBC World News about seaweed as a future food. The interview came about following Dr Rose's talk at the London based trade show Food Matters Live in a seminar on innovative ingredients. 

The feature talked about our GeeSeaNutra® smoked organic seaweed and the unique attributes that makes it a versatile ingredient, not only for food applications, but also and especially for superfoods blends and nutritional powder mixes, and it was watched by over 95 million people. The sustainability of seaweed, and its potential to meet key market challenges, such as mineral deficiencies, obesity and diabetes, makes it an innovative food supplement alternative.

Nearly a 1000 supplements around the World contain Ester-C®. What makes it better?

Ester-C® is Calcium Ascorbate-Threonate, a unique, exclusive form of vitamin C. It is made using a proprietary, water-based manufacturing process that results in a pH neutral product containing naturally occurring vitamin C metabolites. These metabolites, such as threonate, provide quick absorption and better retention in cells. Ester-C® is buffered with calcium to neutralize its pH, making it stomach friendly and therefore resulting in significantly fewer adverse effects and stomach complaints compared with standard ascorbic acid. Scientific research is available by visiting our dedicated Ester-C® product page.

 

Market Trends for Ester-C®

Looking at the trends for this branded ingredient over the last 5 years in the Food Supplement, Sports Nutrition and Pet Food Industries Worldwide, we can see that more and more brands are looking into developing a finished product formula containing Ester-C®  with a 300% growth in product launches in 2016 compared to 2012. Ester-C® is primarily used in stand-alone vitamin products or in combination with other vitamins and minerals. It is also used in sports powders and sport supplements,  food supplements with glucosamine, antioxidant formulas or in special finished food supplement products for women and pet food.
