    Not all collagens are alike

    Not all collagens are alike

    Consumers are seeking efficacious nutritional products with collagen for skin and joint health.
    The collagen ingredient market is growing rapidly, with Grand View Research expecting to see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9% through 2028, hitting US$16.7 billion. Growth is driven by increasingly savvy consumers who are attracted to research around collagen’s benefits to joint health and skin health. However, not all collagen ingredients are alike, which can prove challenging to formulators and brand marketers looking to deliver efficacious products to market. In this podcast, sponsored by http://www.biocelltechnology.com (BioCell Technology), you’ll hear more about:
    Clinical research studies substantiating the health benefits of collagen for joint and skin health
    Differences in ingredients comparing individual molecules to the unique BioCell Collagen matrix
    Developing new formulations with appropriate consumer messaging and claims
    Whitespace market opportunities around collagen products
    Guest: Suhail Ishaq, President, BioCell Technology

    Developing a sustainable carob supply chain

    Developing a sustainable carob supply chain

    Even as consumption of carob is growing globally, orchards are shrinking, leading CarobWay’s founder to seek a new and more sustainable model.
    Carob—once known as a 70s replacement for chocolate—has come into its own, with consumption growing at 5 percent a year. However, orchards are shrinking and there is an increasing shortage of quality ingredients in the market. This has opened up a whitespace not only for supply, but to do so in a new and more sustainable way. Udi Alroy, CEO and co-founder of https://www.carobway.com/ (CarobWay), has taken up the challenge to develop carob intensive cultivation orchards and to produce ingredients using 100% of the carob fruit—from seeds through pods. With decades of experience in the global food and nutraceutical industry, and a passion for supply chain transparency and sustainability, Udi has identified cultivars that produce well in arid climates, and yield abundant ingredients.
    Tune in to hear more about:
    Market opportunities for carob—both for food and beverage products and nutraceuticals.
    How utilising all parts of the carob fruit yields unique new ingredients.
    Why an eco-supportive model based on long-term partnerships has overt and underlying benefits to business.
    Inspiration to make greater sustainability commitments across the supply chain.
