Functional Ingredients

Products with specific health benefits are in increasing demand. AAK’s range of nutritional lipids includes Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and phytosterols that contribute to a healthy cholesterol level in the blood and help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.

Today, consumers are becoming ever more aware of the substantial contribution made to their health by good nutrition and eating habits. This has led to a growing concern with the nutritional content of diet. There is an increasing demand for food products with specific health benefits, and the focus is moving towards preventive health benefits.

AAK’s range of nutritional lipids includes omega 3 fatty acids (Specidol™) and phytosterols (Vividol®), which contribute to a healthy cholesterol level in the blood and help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Specidol™ and Vividol® make it possible to add healthy ingredients to everyday products, thereby offering consumers a way to eat healthily without changing their diet. 

AAK’s strength in the infant formula area is also shown in our functional ingredients range, in the products InFat™, a structured triglyceride, and Akonino DHA 24, an oil with a high DHA content. These fats are specially designed to copy fatty acids in breast milk, giving the optimal nutritional value to babies who cannot be breast-fed.
