Reportlinker Adds Key Players and Innovative Start-Ups in Nutraceuticals: Emerging Strategies in Ingredients, Pharma, Food and Drinks

NEW YORK, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Key Players and Innovative Start-Ups in Nutraceuticals: Emerging strategies in ingredients, pharma, food and drinks

Nutraceuticals are bioactive compounds with properties beneficial to health that are often concentrated extracts from fruits, herbs, seeds, specific lipids and vegetables. Nutraceuticals are often used to fortify food products, creating functional foods, or can be taken as supplements. Pharmaceuticals, on the other hand, are bioactive compounds intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease. Pharmaceuticals are most often new chemical entities. Over the past few years, most of nutraceutical ingredients have made good progress in the marketplace and are now available in a wide range of foods and drinks, as well as supplements. Some have also been developed as pharmaceuticals. The consumer environment is driving growth in the nutraceuticals market. Over the past decade, consumers have become more concerned for their health and are increasingly inclined to self-medicate. Healthcare providers, too, are keen to shift some of the burden of healthcare costs to individuals and recognize that functional foods may provide alternatives to medications. These factors are reflected in the current market for ingredients in the health and nutrition sector, which was estimated to be worth US $4 billion in 2009. This report reviews the strategies of leading companies within different sectors of the nutraceuticals market. It also identifies new entrants to the market that are bringing biotech tools to the discovery and development of new ingredients with health benefits.
