Podcast 7: BUILDING A CASE FOR HEALTH BENEFITS, WITH HUMAN CLINICAL TRIALS
In this podcast NIZO Food Research Division Manager René Floris continues exploring some of the key issues and challenges facing the nutraceutical and food ingredient industry today.
During the current pandemic, customer demand for immunity-boosting nutraceutical and food products has strongly increased: according to the latest Innova Market insights, over 60% of consumers worldwide are looking for products that support the immune system. In a previous podcast, we discussed the importance of the pre-clinical stage, highlighting several in vitro technologies that can help companies build scientific evidence on the immune health benefits of their ingredients and components.
Now, we take a look at the next step in this journey: human clinical trials, with Alwine Kardinaal, Expertise Group Leader Nutrition & Health at NIZO.
