Nutravail holds patents to an innovative, uncooked soft chew process. This patented delivery system provides a great tasting, chewy and candy-like matrix. Because the uncooked soft chews are processed at temperatures below 45 degrees Celsius, it enjoys several key benefits over a traditional confectionery process, the most important being the ability to work with many functional ingredients that are highly sensitive to heat and, therefore, could not be processed in a typical confectionery matrix.
A soft chew format also provides many key benefits over other delivery systems such as beverages, tablets and capsules. A single soft chew weighing between 5 and 6 grams can be loaded with up to 40% of actives, with the typical range being 5% to 25%. With such a high loading capacity, one soft chew can replace 2 or 3 large tablets or capsules. Additionally, soft chews are better tasting than capsules or tablets and can be taken without water. In this regard, soft chews serve as a great delivery system for children. As compared to beverages, the soft chew provides a faster, easier and more portable means of obtaining today’s functional ingredients.
The Company currently manufactures a long list of soft chew products, including soft chews containing Omega-3 (EPA & DHA from fish oil and ALA from flax seed), Multi-vitamins, Fiber, Glucosamine-Chondroitin, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Calcium, Probiotics, Caffeine, Resveratrol, Acai and other Super Fruits, and the flavonoid Quercetin.
