Functional Food Ingredients Development Service

Functional Food Ingredients Development Service

Functional food ingredients are a series of bioactive compounds or ingredients rich in bioactive compounds that are used in manufacturing functional food products. These food ingredients can be derived from a variety of sources. Notably, research in this area continues to advance, and new functional ingredients are being discovered all the time. Aprofood is constantly engaged in basic scientific research to assist you with functional food ingredient development services.

Research Hotspots for the Functional Ingredients Development

Researchers are continuing to identify and develop new bioactive compounds present in natural resources, and the main objectives of the research include the following categories.

  • Plant-Based Bioactive Compounds. Due to their association with health benefits, environmental sustainability and ethical considerations, plant-based bioactive ingredients are gaining popularity. Ongoing research includes the isolation of extracts or novel bioactive compounds from various plant sources (e.g., fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices) and the investigation of their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and other health-promoting properties.
  • Microbial-Derived Ingredients. Including probiotics, prebiotics, postbiotics and some of the microbial metabolites. Researchers are exploring the potential of microbial-derived ingredients and their role in gut health, immune system and overall well-being.
  • Other Novel Source Ingredients. This involves the exploration of potential functional components in marine resources such as seaweeds, microalgae, shellfish and fish, including collagen, chitosan, fucoidan, astaxanthin and other natural antioxidants.
