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

The objective of this project was to assess potential opportunities in health ingredients based on polyphenol-containing extracts from cinnamon and tomato for use in foods, beverages, dietary supplements and cosmetics. These polyphenols are based on a food positively associated with health, as perceived by both the food producer and the consumer.

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
