Omya provides one-stop-shop for calcium and other ingredients
Omya used Vitafoods Europe 2019 to showcase a range of proprietary calcium products as well as specialty ingredients from its portfolio.
For instance, the instant drink prototype Omyafit is designed to support mental and physical health. It contains 240 mg of calcium per 10-gram portion. This equates to 600 mg of natural calcium carbonate, offering 30% of the daily recommended intake and enabling a “high in calcium” claim. Omyafit is fortified with several vitamins, such as C, D, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic acid and the minerals zinc, iron, selenium and chromium, and for added energy, it also contains taurine, L-tyrosine, guarana seed extract and caffeine.
Omyasprint, aimed at cognitive and immune health, is an orally dispersible tablet, based on the multifunctional mineral excipient Omyapharm and vitamin B12. Omyapharm ensures high mechanical stability and fast disintegration while vitamin B12 helps to reduce fatigue.
For consumers looking to avoid health problems associated with calcium deficiency, Calcipur is for supplementation and osteoporosis treatment with 40% bioavailable calcium.
Omya has developed the bone health complex Omyabone – a chewable tablet containing Calcipur as the active ingredient and vitamins K2 and D3.
Together with a balanced diet, supplements based on this formulation contribute to the recommended daily allowance for calcium, according to EU specifications. Additionally, the Calcipur range can be used in various applications, including bakery products, cereals, extruded snacks, vegan drinks and other foods and beverages.
