Nature’s Power Nutraceuticals (NP Nutra) is to launch seven new products: Aloe Vera 100:1 Freeze-dried (Organic), Yacon Leaf Powder (Organic), Nopal Powder (organic), Pea Protein Powder 80% (organic), Hemp Protein Powder 45% (organic) and two new flavours of its NutraProtein Power Blend.
Aloe Vera 100:1 Freeze-dried (Organic) Leaf Powder with its long list of beneficial elements and compounds is a welcome addition to the NP Nutra line, the company said, with a wide range of applications in the food, beverage and cosmetic industries.
In the search for natural healthful sweeteners, NP Nutra is to launch two products: Yacon and Nopal. Yacon is claimed to be a perfect source of fructooligasaccharides (FOS), a type of sugar not digested and absorbed by the body which NP Nutra says makes it an ideal natural sweetener. Sourced organically, Yacon is available in both powder and syrup form. Sharing similar properties, NP Nutra’s Nopal Powder (organic) contains specific polysaccharides that may be helpful in maintaining normal blood sugar levels and pectin, which helps maintain normal cholesterol levels.
In response to the demand for superior quality plant-based protein, NP Nutra is launching two protein powders which can be used separately or combined for maximum benefit. Pea Protein Powder 80% (organic) and Hemp Protein Powder 45% (organic) are both said to be rich in amino acids and contain branched-chain amino acids that provide optimum energy and stamina during workouts and promote good physical recovery afterwards.
Following what the company says is the success of NP Nutra’s latest signature ingredient, NutraProtein Power Blend Vanilla, two new flavours will be launched: Chocolate and Greens. This specially formulated nutritional mix of superior plant-based protein is said to contain essential amino acids, antioxidants and other vital nutrients and is sweetened with stevia.
