Functional ingredients for a healthier life

At Kemin Human Nutrition and Health, we develop science-backed dietary ingredients that provide eye health, brain health and active wellness solutions to meet the needs of today's consumers.

We're headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, with offices in Lisbon, Tokyo and Shanghai. Our ingredients are naturally-sourced, world-friendly and proven to comply with the most stringent global quality standards.

Kemin functional ingredients have been used in over 100 studies to ensure they provide relevant health benefits to consumers and help improve their quality of life. We continue to research and develop new methods for our plant-based science to touch lives around the world. 

We continue to demonstrate lutein innovation, and have recently patented and introduced blue light protection to address growing consumer concerns around the negative effects of overexposure to blue light.

Eye doctors in the United States recommend FloraGLO® Lutein more than any other lutein brand to protect eyes from light damage.

Together, FloraGLO Lutein and ZeaONE® Zeaxanthin represent the gold standard in clinically studied eye health solutions. Our flagship ingredient, FloraGLO Lutein, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016. As the first lutein brand introduced to the global marketplace, FloraGLO has revolutionized the supplemental lutein market and provided the foundation for lutein for human health. Today, FloraGLO is the most researched lutein brand worldwide - supported by more than 80 clinical publications. (PubMed, 2016.)  

Our clinically-studied, safe nootropic is naturally extracted from sustainable spearmint

Our proprietary, spearmint-derived Neumentix™ Phenolic Complex K110-42 supports cognitive performance. Neumentix has been shown to support working memory in adults without disrupting sleep. This innovative ingredient shows great promise in the face of growing consumer demand for safe and natural ingredients for focus and concentration.

We take pride in offering our customers quality, clean-label, non-GMO ingredients with clinical research to back their efficacy and safety.

With ever-increasing demand for health and wellness products, Kemin offers three clinically-studied wellness ingredients: XSurge™, a sports nutrition blend for energy, workout recovery and performance; Slendesta®, a potato-protein-based satiety ingredient; and AssuriTEA®, a natural proprietary blend for men's health. This portfolio of GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) dietary ingredients gives vitamin and supplement manufacturers the flexibility to translate our clinically-studied health benefits into a variety of product formulations.  

We are also proud to offer scientific, formulation, marketing and technical support to our loyal customers. Contact us to learn more about Kemin Human Nutrition and Health.
