BI Nutraceuticals is a global full-service supplier of dietary supplement and functional food ingredients including whole herb powders and teas, standardized and drug ratio extracts, custom blends, vitamins, minerals, drum to hopper custom blends, granular ingredients and other specialty processes including time released and encapsulated ingredients.
The company currently offers more than 200 ingredients that have been determined as safe for use in foods and beverages by the FDA or FEMA. The company has created an ingredient reference database that segments its GRAS offerings into 12 condition-specific, functional platforms, allowing customers to quickly and easily locate all ingredients the company offers to help manage a specific health concern. The functional categories include: Energy; Immunity; Digestive; Cognitive; Heart Health; Anti-Aging; Eye Health; Bone Health; Weight Management; Sleep; Calming; and Joint/Inflammation. The database also provides preliminary reference data explaining why each ingredient aids and supports that particular health condition.
Since 2002, BI has been an innovator in steam sterilization and the company’s Protexx HP® process is currently the industry’s only species-specific, organic sterilization method. All BI ingredients undergo stringent quality analysis that includes heavy metal, pesticide and irradiation testing. All herbal powder ingredients are also tested under the company’s Identilok® species identification process. The company has also developed a proprietary process, UltraHD®, which creates high-density herbal powders allowing for superior flow and less dusting during the manufacturing process.
