About InnovaNutra

InnovaNutra offers nature-inspired products to the food, beverage and cosmetic industries. Our mission is to improve shelf-life and delivery of susceptible natural food and skin care ingredients, enable development of clean label products in food and cosmetic sector, taste-masking of bitter ingredients and reduce cost of valuable ingredients in the finished products.

InnovaNutra’s technology can produce formulations with concentrated amounts of naturally occurring, health-promoting nutrients while removing any bitterness or astringency associated with them. This aids in reducing the amount of added sugars needed to have a great tasting snack or beverage.

Natural ingredients utilized in skin care formulations are quickly broken down by exposure to the environment when applied on the skin. InnovaNutra’s formulations improve the protection of these natural ingredients by at least three to five-fold. This enables improved delivery to target skin sites.
