Asiros Nordic, a Danish grower, manufacturer and supplier of farm-to-finish Nordic berries, has announced a partnership with Clearwater, FL-based Gummynology to offer the first-ever prebiotic gummies into the U.S. market.
The gummies are infused with prebiotics, are maltodextrin-free and are free of any added sugar. Asiros Nordic is a vertically integrated company that controls the quality from field to factory. It is a zero-waste sustainable company that offers complete transparency and traceability in its growing, harvesting and manufacturing processes.
Nordic berries are native to the Scandinavian and Danish region and are known for their premium quality in the global market.
Gummynology has a 70,000-square-foot production facility that currently produces 2 to 4 million gummies daily, which can produce up to 10 million gummies per day, positioning Gummynology as a leader in the industry in terms of scale and capacity, according to the company.
With expertise in product development, taste enhancement and bitterness suppression, Gummynology said it also offers custom molds, bulk packaging, stock formulations and the opportunity for brands to have dedicated production lines. The company also works with heat-sensitive probiotic strains.
The biomarker properties in the Asiros Nordic berries are fingerprinted for identification and authenticity. Each Asiros Nordic BerryShield ingredient is solvent-free and standardized for safety, purity, potency and efficacy, the company stated.
Asiros Nordic’s BerryShield Prebiotic Juice Powders are maltodextrin-free, an ingredient that is typically used in the drying of juice powders to prevent clumping and to act as an anti-caking agent.
BerryShield premium juice powders are 100 percent water-soluble, certified non-GMO (genetically modified organism), vegan and are available in both organic and conventional options. They are standardized for anthocyanins and polyphenols and are also polyphenol-fingerprinted and tested by the Purity-IQ certification program to ensure authenticity and purity.
“We are excited about the partnership with Gummynology,” said Jan Kuhlmann, Asiros Nordic CEO. “Gummynology truly is a next-generation and best-in-class custom manufacturer that we look forward to working with for years to come.”
The BerryShield Premium line includes tart cherry, bilberry, aronia, elderberry, lingonberry, as well as red and black currant. They can be used in a wide variety of delivery forms including tablets, capsules, soft gels, gummies, sachets, and stick packs, as well as for foods and beverages.
