Spotlight on NP Nutra at IFT18

IFT 2018

IFT18 is coming up from July 15th – 18th and we’re looking forward to seeing you there with over 90 premium products!

Hosted in Chicago, this year’s IFT event will see over 23,000 food professionals come together for what’s being called “the largest and most impressive technology and innovation-focused food event in the world.” Sign me up!

IFT’s theme will be “A Matter of Science+Food,” a natural fit for NP Nutra® because of our focus on innovation. For twenty years we have supplied the finest nutraceutical ingredients to the world's leading dietary supplement, functional food and beverage manufacturers. Validated by our unique Triple-T Verification™ program, all our products are sustainably sourced from farmers, of the highest quality and purity and processed at certified state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

This will be NP Nutra’s second consecutive year attending IFT and we are excited to showcase a unique portfolio of high quality superfoods, super fruits and botanical extracts. Attendees will have the opportunity to view and sample a selection of over 90 premium products including our recently launched organic NutraProtein Power Blend®, a plant-based protein powder, and an outstanding MaquiForza™ Freeze-dried Maqui Berry Powder, which now contains 50% more anthocyanin, polyphenol and ORAC content than our previous signature product.

In addition to showcasing a selection from our unique Signature Ingredients line, we also look forward to giving you a taste of some of the following:

  • Superfruits – Blackberry, Blueberry, Cranberry, Dragonfruit, Maqui, Noni, Papaya, Pomegranate, Strawberry

IFT17 was a great show for us last year and we look forward to another intense 4 days of exploring new opportunities, discovering innovations and building new and existing relationships. IFT18 is like an accelerated launchpad for the business of bringing health and wellbeing to the world. Here are just some of the highlights of our booth this year:

  • Coconut products are consistently our top sellers and very popular in functional foods and beverages. Everyone is going nuts over coconut!
  • We recently launched new certified organic super green ingredient powders for Broccoli and Collard Greens
  • High protein plant-based ingredients are a cornerstone in the diet of any consumer who wants to increase their strength and stamina. We meet this need by offering the highest quality Chia, Brown Rice, Pea Protein and Quinoa as well as our signature NutraProtein Power Blend® with Brown Rice and Pea Protein
  • We’re very proud to offer Papaya that is certified organic; a rare find in the market and so important for consumers to feel confident in taking advantage of the wide range of health benefits that papaya offers.

At NP Nutra®, we take testing and verification seriously and strive to know where our ingredients come from. In September of 2017, we launched the Triple-T Verification™ Program. Triple-T – TraceTestTrust® - is a supply chain validation program which traces ingredients back to their origin and follows them through testing and processing to the final phase of customer delivery.

For us, it is a personal mission. All our team members are invested in health and feel confident about our role in providing the best ingredients for product developers to use in their latest health product innovations for consumers. That’s why all our organic ingredients are tested extensively for GMO’s and pesticides.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago at IFT18. Stop by our Booth S4649 and allow us to introducing you to our products, as delicious as they are nutritious!
