CARGILL – Your specialized nutrition partner across life stages

AgroFOOD Industry Hi Tech


From supporting the healthy development of tiny newborn babies through to the ageing of loving grandparents, solutions are required to nourish life every step of the way. That’s why Cargill is now launching a new approach to the specialized nutrition category. Whether a customer needs solutions to support early life nutrition,

sports and active lifestyle nutrition, medical nutrition or general dietary supplements, Cargill can help. The company can offer expertise as well as ingredients, helping you to support consumers in living healthier, longer and happier lives.

With this in mind, its theme at Vitafoods Europe 2024 (May 14-16, Geneva) is ‘Nourishing across life stages’. At Cargill’s stand (J214), it will present a broad offering of nature-based, science-backed, nutritional and sustainable solutions that will positively impact people’s health and wellbeing across all life stages.

Cargill will demonstrate how – by combining its trusted expertise, comprehensive solutions portfolio, insights-led innovation and reliable supply – it provides a full spectrum of solutions that are specifically formulated to address the unique nutritional needs of consumers.It will showcase several applications of ingredients from its portfolio of specialized nutrition solutions. 

These include a functional gummy made with EpiCor® postbiotic, a muscle-building beverage made with RadiPure® pea protein, and last but not least, a gummy fortified with plant-based docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

DHA is an important micronutrient for optimal functioning at every stage of life. The many benefits that plant-based DHA brings are the reason why Cargill started sourcing DHA from Canadian-headquartered innovator Mara.

Cargill’s algae DHA (extracted from strain Schizochytrium, using a patented solvent-free process) offers a more sustainable* source of potent omega-3 fatty acids than those derived from fish. These fatty acids are pivotal for optimal visual and brain development in infants and support cognition and cardiovascular health in adults. Derived from microalgae via a controlled fermentation process, the product ensures a high quality of DHA, without the environmental and contaminant concerns associated with fish oil. Cargill’s vast scale and presence ensures that it can guarantee a long term, reliable and economically viable supply of DHA.

This is just one example of why Cargill is the ideal specialised nutrition partner across all life stages.
