Innovative Ingredients for Evolving Health

Posted October 15, 2017

Our health is ever-evolving. Achieving good health takes hard work, and once you do achieve the coveted "healthy" status, you must continue to work to maintain it. And since our health isn't static, the ingredients that support our health shouldn't be either. That's why at Kemin Human Nutrition and Health, we are constantly evolving our methods to offer high-quality, science-backed ingredients for supplements and health foods.

When it Comes to Nutraceuticals, Evolution is Essential

From their natural origins across the globe, Kemin ingredients are carefully processed in the United States under a controlled supply chain to ensure quality and complete traceability. After processing, our ingredients undergo extensive research programs, including human clinical studies, to ensure their continued efficacy and safety.

But the story doesn't stop there. We are constantly re-imagining our processes to discover new and improved methods for producing our high-quality ingredients. The marigolds used to produce esteemed FloraGLO ® Lutein are grown, hand-picked and made into oleoresin in India before coming to our headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa, for processing into dietary lutein, the form of lutein found in healthy green leafy vegetables.

Kemin also houses the largest marigold research and breeding program in the world. Our scientists have sequenced the entire marigold genome and use traditional plant breeding methods to optimize the lutein content in marigolds - thus improving yields to bring this important carotenoid to global consumers. It's these continual innovations that make Kemin Human Nutrition and Health stand out among functional ingredient suppliers.

Beyond continual innovation, we offer our customers customized support to help deliver formulations to consumers around the world. From technical services support, lab support and marketing insights, we are a resource to our customers as they launch innovative dietary products.

We're proud to provide supplement and health food manufacturers with science-backed claims and real health benefits. All Kemin Human Nutrition and Health ingredients are:

  • Naturally-sourced
  • Vegan/Vegetarian
  • Non-GMO
  • Kosher
  • Halal
  • Allergen-free
