Bio-gen Extracts - Innovations for Advanced Nutrition19 November 2018
Bio-gen Extracts is an Indian company that was established in 2000, with a focus on the development and production of scientifically backed health ingredients. The business recognises the evolving requirements of the nutraceutical market, and aligns itself by providing unique and customised solution-based products.
Global supply chain management requires tremendous effort, patience and dedication to the nutraceutical industry, due to the regulatory landscape, increase in consumer awareness, raw material availability and challenges associated with sustainability. With Bio-gen Extracts, customers will find a dependable partner with more than 18 years of experience in the areas of product development, sustainable sourcing of ingredients, GMP-certified manufacturing and the delivery of innovative solutions that cater to this dynamic market.
From its inception, Bio-gen Extracts established itself as a manufacturer of active pharmaceutical ingredients in India, going on to enter the nutraceutical market in 2003; however, the company continues to employ the quality management systems used in the pharmaceutical industry, resulting in the creation of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Bangalore.
A trusted partner for carotenoids
With its own seed-to-drum programme for Lute-gen (lutein ester and lutein-free) Bio-gen Extracts is now a long-term and trusted partner in the global market. The company offers customised formulations of Lute-gen in oil, beadlet, granular powder and cold water dispersible powder forms. Additionally, the business offers Lipid and CO2-extracted Lute-gen for some of the aforementioned grades.
Bio-gen Extracts' value proposition lies in going to great lengths to provide a clean-label product that is 100% natural, vegan, vegetarian, and free of residual solvents, pesticides and aflatoxins.
Bio-gen Extracts' belief in the ability of natural sources for a healthy lifestyle has pushed it to visualise the potential of Lute-gen beyond eye health and cognition, leading it to successfully conduct a unique study in Spain in the area of healthy ageing.
The company also supplies Beta Caro-gen (natural beta-carotene), Ultra Caro-gen (natural mixed carotenoids), Zea-gen (zeaxanthin), natural lycopene (fermented) and natural astaxanthin from its range of carotenoids.
New product innovation
Having established itself as a global partner for carotenoids, Bio-gen Extracts constantly pursues new opportunities in different segments and markets. This has resulted in the launch of innovative, application-based ingredients, such as the clinically evidenced FenuLean, TruBeet, Ultra-gen Omega and Garlixir. These ingredients are supported by clinical studies and scientific literature, as well as go-to-market strategies that fuel Bio-gen Extracts' partnerships with esteemed formulation companies throughout the world. In addition, the company can support formulators with prototype development using these ingredients, thereby providing an exhaustive solution to meet consumer requirements.
However, the journey does not end here: the company believes that innovation backed by continuous improvement is the foundation of providing a product that is sustainable, dependable and of the highest quality. This virtue is inherent in Bio-gen Extracts' product development policy, which does not end at product launch, but continues beyond market adoption and lessons learned from the product development cycle.
Bio-gen Extracts' marketing and product development team will discuss the company’s new opportunities at 8D98 at Hi Europe, which runs 27–29 at Messe Frankfurt in Germany.
