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

Apple polyphenols show diverse biological activities and may contribute to beneficial health effects, including protecting against inflammation, high blood sugar and cardiovascular disease. The objective of this project was to assess potential opportunities in health ingredients based on polyphenol-containing extracts from apples for use in foods, beverages, dietary supplements and cosmetics.

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
