www.chemicalsknowledgehub.com Which immune-specific ingredients does your company offer?


Our prebiotic dietary fibre from chicory root, named on the ingredient list as inulin and oligofructose, have been proven to support good intestinal function. The intestine is the body’s largest contact surface with the outer world and houses 70% of our immune system. The gut microbiome, the multitude of bacteria that colonize it, contains beneficial microorganisms such as Lactobacilli or Bifidobacteria, but also those that can be harmful if they gain the upper hand. The daily consumption of prebiotic dietary fibre provides beneficial bacterial in the intestine with their “favourite food”. Chicory root fibre, in particular, is an ideal food source for bifidobacteria. Inulin and oligofructose are among the very few proven prebiotics by the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics


(ISAPP) and are currently the only established prebiotics derived from plants. They can be used in a variety of ways, from dairy products, dairy alternatives, cereals, baked goods and confectionery, to baby food and infant milk.


Ubiquinol is the directly active form of coenzyme Q10, and plays a crucial role in cellular energy production. The tissues and cells involved in immune function have significant energy needs and therefore require a substantial supply of ubiquinol. As we age, our ubiquinol levels have been shown to decline. Supplementation with Kaneka Ubiquinol can bridge that gap.


Nutriswiss AG specializes in refining and enhancing superior-quality oils that are characterized by a high degree of purity; as such, they are in great demand in both the food and pharmaceutical industries. In terms of their effect on the immune system, omega-3 fatty acids play an important role, but so do fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins C, A and E (tocopherol). Preserving the important micronutrients and simultaneously eradicating harmful substances from the oils is our core competence. Only last year, we established a new short-path distillation (SPD) technology in our plant to purify crude oils. It’s particularly gentle, effective and subjects the raw materials to minimal thermal stress. Given that the focus of numerous orders is now optimizing the omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acid ratios, as well as enriching the final product with other micronutrients, SPD enables us to produce high-purity blends with completely neutral sensory properties that meet the very specific requirements of our customers.


Nutrient delivery systems: In the event of an acute attack on our immune system, it needs more nutrients to generate energy for defence. With SunActive, Taiyo offers a patented, secured nutrient delivery system with high bioavailability based on micronized and microencapsulated minerals and enzymes (Q10, Mg, Zn, Fe). A special technology eliminates the metallic or soapy taste of the minerals. It also makes it less reactive to other product components and substances in the human body. Antiviral and antibacterial polyphenols from plants, fruits, fruit extracts and tea: polyphenols are natural antibodies that suppress the adhesion and penetration of viruses and bacteria, protect against infections and inhibit the reproduction of germs in the body. The Taiyo product range includes, for example, SunAmla, with polyphenols from the Indian amla fruit; SunCran Naturelle, a 100% natural organic cranberry juice powder combined with Sunfiber; Moringa Extract S (particularly rich in glucomoringin GMG); and catechin-rich Sunphenon/ Teavigo from high-quality green tea leaves. Water-soluble dietary fibre: Sunfiber is a partially hydrolyzed, tasteless, colourless and odourless dietary fibre from the guar bean (partly hydrolyzed guar gum, PHGG), which has been shown to lower the glycemic index of a meal, promote mineral absorption and improve transit times. The ISO-certified fibre is also low-FODMAP, making it tolerable for people with irritable bowel syndrome.


Is your ingredient supported by scientific studies?


More than 40 human intervention studies have examined the selective growth of bifidobacteria by inulin and oligofructose. And several studies have confirmed the link between gut health and the body’s own defences: A scientific study with senior citizens undergoing treatment for a diarrhoeal illness showed that those receiving inulin or oligofructose on a daily basis had a lower recurrence rate and required significantly less hospitalization. In addition, a large-scale randomized control study involving more than 200 kindergarten children demonstrated improved immune responses. During the winter months, the children consumed prebiotic fibre from chicory root daily for six months. The result: the number of medically confirmed febrile infections decreased significantly, and there was a significant increase in bifidobacteria in the intestine. In addition, it was shown that with antibiotic therapy and simultaneous prebiotic fibre intake, the usual antibiotic-related disturbance of the intestinal flora was significantly reduced, and the number of bifidobacteria was significantly higher compared to the control group.


Numerous studies confirm that Kaneka Ubiquinol has a significant impact on supporting immunity. Researchers found that people with influenza had far less ubiquinol in their body than healthy people. This was confirmed across three influenza seasons. We can thus assume that the body needs ubiquinol to protect itself. It is also known that influenza virus-induced dysregulation of the inflammatory response, commonly known as the ‘cytokine storm’, can significantly contribute to morbidity and mortality. Ubiquinol is able to attenuate markers of inflammation and down-regulate pro-inflammatory signalling. Since there seems to be a link between healthy ageing and good immunity, antioxidants such as ubiquinol could be helpful for people of all ages. Plus, the stronger the immune system, the better the vaccination will work.


The coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing quest for an effective therapy has also given a boost to omega-3 fatty acid research. 48 March/April 2021 • Issue 2
