Body&Fit expands product offerings with Lonza’s capsule and specialty ingredients portfolio

These include Lonza’s UC-II and MuscleGuard formulations to target the consumer health and nutrition segment, with a focus on joint health, immunity and beauty.

Body&Fit, a Glanbia Performance Nutrition brand, and Lonza have collaborated to expand the former’s nutrition, supplements and dietary solutions globally utilising the latter’s capsule portfolio and specialty nutrition ingredients.

With a capsule-in-a-capsule design, Lonza’s DUOCAP technology provides a delivery format enabling combined dosing of ingredients that may otherwise be incompatible. The first two DUOCAP products for Body&Fit – Beauty Skin Duo and Pro B Duo – have already been launched. Both products use a titanium dioxide (TiO2)-free inner capsule, tapping into the clean label consumer trend.

Body&Fit has further planned to launch three additional products for immune health and sleep, mood and anxiety in the early 2021. All three supplements will feature Lonza’s DUOCAP capsule technology.

Additionally, Body&Fit has been developing a joint health and support supplement, utilising Lonza’s TiO2-free hard capsules portfolio as well as its UC-II undenatured type II collagen ingredient, which is said to improve mobility and joint comfort.

Another key element of the collaboration is the development of an intra-workout product featuring one of Lonza’s ingredients, MuscleGuard formulation, a blend that delivers pre-, intra- and post-workout support.

Roel van de Put, business development manager for Lonza, commented: “This collaboration with Body&Fit is a showcase of our combined expertise in providing sports and nutrition dietary supplements in dose delivery formats. We are excited to work with Body&Fit to help consumers live a fitter and healthier lifestyle with new and innovative nutrition products.”
