C0818 Bilberry and Blueberry Polyphenols

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

Anthocyanins and other polyphenolics derived from blueberries and bilberries reportedly exhibit antidiabetic, antibacterial and anticarcinogenic properties. In this study, CPL assessed the potential for ingredients based on these compounds, across food, beverage, dietary supplement and cosmetics applications.

In considering each opportunity we attempted to determine the following: –

  1. Approximate market size, characteristics (including possible competitive products), trends and likely future potential
  2. Key players with an IP/technology position
  3. Main success factors and barriers to entry of successful key players
  4. Potential partner and acquisition targets (either key players with IP/technology or good science-based ‘other’ players with good products)
  5. Key market segments in terms of applications or health conditions targeted
  6. Associated health benefits
  7. Scientific substantiation
  8. Possible use of the polyphenol (or the extract) as a technological antioxidant
