Consumers most trust products with sound science behind them, proven to do what is claimed on the label. They also know that a lifetime of good health starts in infancy.

One company, Enzymotec, provides bio-functional ingredients that can be used in infant foods, functional foods, clinical nutrition and dietary supplements. For example, the omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is critical in brain and vision development in babies; the company's InPUFA mimics the ability of breast milk to boost DHA availability into the baby's brain. Another product, InFat, is a structured fat that mimics a major portion of human breast milk fat. Babies who ingest it thrive better, better absorb key minerals such as calcium and essential fats, and also suffer less from digestive ailments. The ingredients can be used in baby foods and infant formulas.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) helps improve memory and brain performance. PS is crucial for normal brain activity, and its clinically approved benefits have gained FDA recognition. SharpPS is a natural, non-genetically modified (non-GMO) and kosher product, beneficial for memory loss conditions, and improving mood. SharpPS gold is a unique PS-DHA conjugate offering greater brain availability of DHA and synergy in cognitive action of both DHA and PS for mental performance; they and other PS products are available as powders and fluids, in concentrations of 10%-70%, and can be incorporated into soft gels, tablets, capsules, dairy products and nutrition bars.

The company also offers CardiaBeat, a natural, proprietary ingredient made up of sterol-esters of DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) that promote heart health, by offering a reduction in several risk factors simultaneously.
