Weight management

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), obesity is one of the greatest public health challenges of the 21st century. This is because its prevalence has tripled since 1980. And the number of people affected continues to rise at an alarming rate, particularly in the case of children.

Obesity is a condition that involves having excessive fat in the body and it is associated with an increased risk of developing chronic health problems, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure and high blood fats. Solutions must be found as overweight and obesity trends are now dramatically on the rise. WHO further projects that by 2015 approximately 2.3 billion adults will be overweight and more than 700 million will be obese.

In this battle against obesity, dietary supplements and functional foods can play a key role by motivating individuals and through improving results by helping to reduce the intake of fats.

Immune Health

There is an increasing trend showing a preference for prevention rather than treatment as regards many health issues. In line with this trend, consumer demand is increasing for food, beverage and healthcare products that support immune health

The human immune system is a highly complex defense mechanism that is made up of specific immune cells, protective molecules (e.g. antibodies) and other very intricate devices. And it is the immune system that helps to protect humans from the adverse environmental elements that they might encounter.

KitoZyme provides scientifically-proven solutions that are designed to help consumers maintain a healthy immune system that can deal with the everyday challenges that their bodies face, as well as supporting their general well-being.

Fiber

It is well known that fiber is an essential factor behind ensuring healthy digestion. At KitoZyme, we are committed to meeting the considerable market demand for fiber ingredients that promote problem-free digestion and in turn help to reduce the risk of lifestyle health problems.

Whilst fiber is considered crucial to the human diet, studies show that our diets are increasingly lacking in this critical component. This is because we are consuming more in the way of processed foods. Alarmingly, average fiber consumption has been calculated to have fallen to around 15g/day, which is considerably below the recommended 25-30g daily intake.

Fiber is a complex family of components that come from many sources and feature many different characteristics.

KitoZyme provides insoluble fiber ingredients to boost the fiber content of almost all food applications.

Digestive health

A healthy digestive system is essential to overall fitness and a sense of well-being.

Food technology / Food processing

Increasing consumer demand for microbiologically safer foods, greater convenience, smaller packages, and longer product shelf life is forcing the industry to develop new food-processing, cooking, handling, and packaging strategies.

The increased attention for chitosan applications in food industry is readily seen due to its several distinctive biological activities and functional properties, such as its antimicrobial activity and film-forming property. A large body of work has been done to evaluate chitosan as food preservative or edible coating material to preserve quality and extend the shelf life in a variety of foodstuffs, such as fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, bread, etc.

KitoZyme offers plant-sourced solution to help manufacturers in their food procession.
