Nutrition journey

Food has an impact on health. That’s why more and more consumers no longer consider only the taste of food or beverages but also ask: “What’s in it for me?” Barentz has acquired a great deal of knowledge about nutrition, ingredients, and trends over the last decades. These insights are reflected in a wide range of attractive ingredient solutions and customized formulations developed by our dedicated team of food technologists in our application laboratories worldwide.

Pre-workout drink

Sports nutrition requires various concepts for the health-conscious consumers. Pre-workout formulations require easily digestible carbohydrates providing release of energy. Tasty energy drinks can be fortified with Barentz Vitamin Energy premix, guarana extracts (caffeine-like extracts with strong antioxidant activity) and panax ginseng root (an energizer and stress-reducer). A post-workout formulation is also available.
