Next generation plant-based functional protein bars and powder supplements for hair, skin and detox expand functional food portfolio.
SternLife, one of Germany’s providers of private label solutions for functional foods, will be presenting four new vegan bars at Vitafoods Europe, taking place from 10-12 May 2022 in Geneva (booth K110). The new range is SternLife’s response to growing consumer demand for sustainable products that are free from animal ingredients but promise maximum enjoyment. Also new in the portfolio are three powder-based, all-in-one nutricosmetics concepts. All products are characterised by formulas with selected ingredients; the formulations can also be individually customised. This gives companies the opportunity to tailor on-trend finished products to their brands and target groups, and use associated health claims.
SternLife‘s product developers have developed vegan bars that do not leave a dry mouthfeel after consumption, but instead have an indulgent creamy, crunchy bite and soft texture—and feature a protein content of up to 28% and a sugar content of less than 0.5%. The new vegan indulgence bars are available as samples, including the deluxe bar with a creamy centre, crunchy topping and melt-in-the-mouth dark chocolate coating in the flavours cookies and cream, and caramel cookie. The recipes for this product line can be individually adapted, and soy- and allergen-free versions, as well organic quality bars, are also available on request.
SternLife also offers detox boosters for the inner cleansing process, skin care for a fresh skin complexion and hair care from within. With the innovative nutricosmetics concepts from SternLife, companies can react quickly to upcoming trends in the beauty sector. All concepts contain active ingredient complexes with health claims. The active ingredient composition of each of the products can be individually adapted. The concepts presented are powder-based for dissolving in water, free of preservatives, dyes and alcohol, and can also be adapted according to taste. With these three concepts, SternLife offers opportunities for companies that want to create or expand a product portfolio in the beauty sector, either with ready-made, complete beauty packages or as a basis for individual concepts.
“Our private label product innovations around the topics of beauty, lifestyle and vegan nutrition are produced on state-of-the-art equipment, which guarantees high and consistent quality. We also provide customers with expertise in packaging and marketing, and advise on food regulatory issues. We are pleased to be able to present all of our innovations at this year’s Vitafoods,” said Marc van Essen, sales manager at SternLife.
