A nutraceutical is a nutrient derived from organic sources – a plant or a food — that’s commonly used for medicinal purposes or dietary supplements. The market remains robust and ever-growing for nutraceuticals such as antioxidants; probiotics; omega-3 fatty acids; glucosamine; melatonin; plants like algae, aloe vera, seaweed, and wheatgrass; teas and herbs like ginseng and echinacea.
Freeze drying has become a vital part of the nutraceuticals industry for many reasons. In addition to preserving the original product for stabilization and extended shelf life, freeze drying will increase its concentration so it is more potent and keeps its naturally occurring nutrients and flavors. A freeze dried nutraceutical can be manufactured as a tablet or capsule for easy dosage and lightweight storage, transport, and packaging. The freeze drying process also enables consistent and cost-effective bulk production of nutraceuticals.
Customers seek out nutraceutical products with proven quality and effectiveness, free of unnecessary preservatives or additives. As this multi-faceted market continues to grow and get more competitive, industry success means being able to manufacture trusted nutraceuticals that deliver their full health-benefit potential at lower costs. This is where the right freeze drying process is crucial, along with the right freeze drying partner.
