Fortitech focuses on fortified product development expertise at IFT

Known for its innovative approach to the development and manufacture of custom nutrient premixes, Fortitech is the one-stop source for food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers looking to fortification as a way to differentiate their products in the consumer marketplace. During IFT 2012, visitors to the company’s booth had the opportunity to see firsthand why Fortitech has pioneered, perfected and continues to advance custom fortification and product development with a variety of nutrient-rich samples. With the ability to custom formulate any application with any nutrient anywhere in the world; attendees can experience such items as:

PowerCap – This all-in-one product was developed by Fortitech as an ultra-convenient way to deliver nutrients, flavors, colors, stabilizers and sweeteners in one complete powdered solution. Housed in a compartment within a cap that fits the top of any regular-size water bottle, the premix can be released into a beverage at will. This innovative, on-the-go delivery method means that nutrients are dispensed in an intact state - increasing shelf-life and eliminating the need for overages, preservatives and other additives. Using this novel technology, beverage manufactures no longer need to heat-treat their products. Attendees can choose from three samples, which include:

  • Black Raspberry or Strawberry Kiwi Flavored Relaxation in a Cap – A relaxation formula, which includes an all-natural flavor, zero-calorie sweetener, Ashwaganda Extract, GABA and L-Theanine
  • Cranberry Flavored Fatigue Fighter – An energy boosting blend of B-vitamins and Vitamin C, along with an all-natural flavor and zero-calorie sweetener
  • Fizzy Slimming Effervescent Tablet addressing weight management, which contains nutrients such as B-vitamins, Chromium and L – Carnitine in a citrus flavored base
  • Single Serve Hangover Helpers – These gelatin shots in grape, berry and lemon-lime flavors, are formulated with B-vitamins, Magnesium and Potassium – the perfect morning remedy for a good night out in Vegas
  • Bursting Bits Cherry Confectionery – This candy ‘crackles’ in your mouth and is fortified with 18 nutrients, including B-vitamins, as well as Vitamins A, C, E, D3, Calcium, Zinc and Folic Acid for overall wellness.
