Vitality comes from within
Healthy, lively, energetic and vital – that’s how we want our babies to grow up. Minerals are essential in baby food. In the growth phase, the healthy development of bones and teeth requires calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Iron and potassium also play an important part in maintaining a healthy heart and blood circulation. Infant formulas provide proteins, minerals and other nutrients that give babies a healthy start in life.

Black garlic: heart health without the odour

PDF (332 KB)

An extract of fermented garlic is scientifically proven to support the cardiovascular system
The health benefits of garlic are widely known, but because of its equally well-known and somewhat antisocial malodorous side effects, most people shy away from consuming it in large quantities. Even when the dry extract is added to dietary supplements, the familiar odour is usually still present. However, when fresh garlic is fermented and becomes black garlic, it loses its undesirable odour yet retains its health benefits. Indeed, black garlic actually has greater antioxidant activity than its fresh counterpart. These factors alone make black garlic far more appealing than fresh – not only in terms of taste and smell as a food ingredient, but also for use in dietary supplements.

However, no matter how old we are, many of us experience limited mobility caused by joint pain and stiffness after unaccustomed exercise such as sport or as a consequence of general aging.

How to convince even children with whole grain products

PDF (439 KB)

An innovative flour from White Wheat offers a mild taste and pleasant appearance
Whole grain products are closely linked to various positive health benefits. They deliver high amounts of important vitamins, minerals, fibre and phytonutrients, which all play their part in keeping the body healthy. For children in particular, a balanced diet high in fibre and nutrients is crucial. But herein lies the problem: There is no other consumer group that sticks more rigidly to the belief that “Taste is king”. While health conscious adults are more tolerant of taste if a product promotes health, this is not the case with children. Whole grain products, which have a slightly bitter taste, are especially unpopular amongst children. With its innovative Snow®Wheat flour, however, Kampffmeyer Food Innovation GmbH provides a whole grain flour which links the nutritional advantages of whole grain with the taste and colour of standard white flour. For children’s products especially, Snow®Wheat provides a healthy and tasty solution.

Seminar: Health Claims

PDF (396 KB)

How many health claims can a food company afford?
The functional food market is stagnating: Following great initial success, in Germany the share of products with additional health benefits has remained constant at around 4.5 billion euros since 2006, according to the consultants IBH Retail. Since the Health Claims Regulation (HCR) went into force in 2007, foodstuffs may only be sold with health-related advertising claims if they are scientifically proven, for which long transitional periods apply, as are still in effect today. Health claims are investigated in advance by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) for their truthfulness. The seminar on Special Health Claims held in March 2011 in Munich by the Z I E L–TUM Academy in cooperation with the Harrison Clinical Research and the Nutrition cluster,
