Assist in developing new plant-based nutritional drinks with scientifically proven health benefits
On an interim assignment, an R&D team was guided in order to develop new plant-based nutritional drinks with scientifically proven health benefits. On the basis of a GRAS dossier that was written, a new plant extract obtained the self-affirmed GRAS status. A human intervention study was designed to proof the effect of this extract on blood glucose control and gut health. This new plant-based drink is launched recently. It will enable seamless, connected and healthy lifestyles utilizing the latest scientific discoveries. It symbolizes the companies’ commitment to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions that truly integrate nutritional drinks into a healthy lifestyle.
