Layn Corp., a global leader in the vertically-integrated production of plant-based sweeteners and natural extracts, has launched a new division dedicated to hemp and cannabidiol extracts.
The company says the launch leverages its significant investment in the research and production of CBD and hemp extracts, allowing it to offer full- and broad-spectrum oils and powders, and a water-soluble CBD for a broad range of applications.
“The new business segments will help strengthen our portfolio and better serve our customers in a wide range of unique industries, including food, beverage, flavor, fragrance, sports nutrition, nutraceutical and animal nutrition,” said Layn USA President Elaine Yu.
Layn Corp. also has three other business segments: Plantæ Functional Botanicals, Plant-Based Sweeteners and TruGro Animal Nutrition.
The new Plantæ business unit includes:
- Plantæ ANTIOXIDANT – Two innovative lines of natural antioxidants targeting both personal health applications and the preservation of flavors and shelf life in food and beverage products.
- Plantæ PERFORMANCE – A sports nutrition line offering plant-based solutions across key categories including weight management, natural energy, sports recovery, healthy aging and improved cognitive function.
- Plantæ SENSE – Layn’s flavor modulation technology that addresses today’s prominent consumer demands for sugar and salt reduction. These products can enhance sweetness, effectively mask bitterness and increase salt, sour or umami flavors.
The Plant-Based Sweeteners division includes an advanced and innovative ingredient portfolio of natural, clean tasting sweetener solutions for all sugar reduction needs. It includes stevia, monk fruit, sweet blackberry leaf and NHDC.
TruGro Animal Nutrition is rolling out a line of botanical extracts including polyphenol-rich extracts, citrus bioflavonoids, natural sweeteners and other natural extracts to support key areas of animal nutrition such as palatability, natural antioxidation, gut health and AGP replacement.
