Fortitech addresses formulation considerations
Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition & Food Science, Volume 40, Issue 3.
Two leading causes of bone and joint problems, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, affect over 75 million people in the USA alone. They are only part of the larger segment of musculoskeletal conditions and related health issues affecting hundreds of millions of people globally that contribute to severe long-term pain and physical disability. As consumers increasingly take personal health management into their own hands, they seek foods, beverages and clinical products to help address the deterioration, inflammation and pain associated with bone and joint problems.
Fortitech, essentially the founder and pioneer of the nutrient premix industry, hosted a webinar on Tuesday, February 2, 11 a.m., USA ET, that showcased how strategic nutrition can be utilized to develop products that target bone and joint health. Attendees learnt about key nutrients that can be used in the treatment and prevention of these health conditions as well as best practices for formulation with these ingredients – including custom nutrient premixes that target popular product applications.
