UNDERSTANDING FUCORICH® - FUCOIDAN + MANNITOL
Many of the health benefits generally associated with seaweed consumption are attributed to a compound called fucoidan. Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide found naturally in brown seaweeds. Whilst it serves to protect the seaweed plant from marine-borne pathogens and other environmental challenges, fucoidan has now been widely researched and shown to offer beneficial properties for human health.
Mannitol is a naturally occurring nutrient utilised as energy storage for the seaweed plant. The algal mannitol in Fucorich® may play a beneficial role in maintaining salt and fluid balances in the body. The subtle, sweet taste imparted by mannitol, coupled with the mild organoleptic properties of the fucoidan constituent, make Fucorich® ideal for functional foods and beverages.
Fucorich® is also a valuable source of minerals and other marine nutrients which are essential for replenishing trace elements and achieving optimal health.
Fucorich® has been developed especially for functional food and beverage applications. Versatile and easy to formulate, Fucorich® exhibits superior solubility and a mild flavour profile.
Fucorich® is an ideal ingredient to add to many different health food applications, particularly those supporting digestive function, immune health, healthy ageing and general wellbeing.
Potential product applications include supplement powders, super greens formulas, protein blends, clean-eating snacks and fortified beverages.
Whilst Fucorich® was developed specifically for food and beverage applications, it can also be easily encapsulated or pressed into tablets for the nutraceutical market.
Clinical testing has confirmed that Marinova's Undaria pinnatifida extracts are safe for human consumption. Fucorich® is a natural seaweed extract that has been shown to be non-toxic and non-allergenic.
