DSM Nutritional Products AG Key Developments

By-Health Co., Ltd Announces Research and Development Collaboration with DSM Nutritional Products for Fruitflow

Provexis plc announced that the company's Alliance partner for Fruitflow®, DSM Nutritional Products, has entered into a strategic collaboration agreement for Fruitflow® with BY-HEALTH Co., Ltd. The strategic collaboration agreement between DSM and BY-HEALTH will focus on the development of new products that contribute to cardiovascular health, to include the establishment of relevant evaluation and testing procedures to accord with Chinese technical and regulatory standards. The development process will target the creation of new products for people who are at risk of cardiovascular disease, particularly to include those over 40 years of age. There are already more than 230m people in China who are thought to have cardiovascular disease, and a significant increase in cardiovascular events is expected in China over the course of the next decade based on population aging and growth alone. The company believes that Fruitflow® has the potential to play an import role in primary prevention in the Chinese market. The company will provide scientific and technical support for Fruitflow® to DSM and BY-HEALTH throughout the collaboration.

Immune support and resistance to infections and colds is a major health concern of consumers and patients alike and is the main category of supplements used by consumers of all ages.

DSM Nutritional Products Ltd. and Evonik Nutrition & Care Gmbh Enter into a Joint Development Agreement to Develop Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Animal Nutrition

DSM Nutritional Products Ltd. and Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH announced that they have entered into a joint development agreement for algae-based omega-3 fatty acid products for animal nutrition, in particular in aquaculture and pet food applications. The aim is to meet the increasing demand for omega-3 fatty acids by harnessing naturally occurring marine algae using sustainable, biotechnological processes based on natural, non-marine resources. Under the agreement, the companies will jointly work on the development of products and explore opportunities for commercialization. The competencies that DSM and Evonik bring to the development partnership complement reach other: DSM has expertise in the cultivation of marine organisms and long-established biotechnology capabilities in development and operations, whilst Evonik's focus for decades has been on industrial amino acid biotechnology executing large-volume fermentation processes. The envisioned algae-based omega-3 fatty acid products will be high value, natural and sustainable alternatives to fish oil, whose supply is finite. This will help the animal nutrition industry keep up with increasing demand without endangering fish stocks and will contribute to healthy and sustainable animal nutrition. Just like humans, animals also need their daily intake of essential, long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in their diet to ensure healthy growth. Until now, these fatty acids have been added to aquaculture feed almost exclusively from marine sources such as fish oil and fishmeal. By using algae, DSM and Evonik are looking to contribute to a more sustainable aquaculture industry.
