Core Nutrition

Essential phospholipids (EPL) are a combination of unsaturated fatty acid phospholipids from natural sources like soybean or sunflower.
Phospholipids contribute to the regulation of biological pathways, including cellular communication and synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Their clinical benefits are backed up by thorough research and published studies.

Heart

Lipid profile modifying abilities; Prevents platelet aggregation; Increases patient's physical working capacity

Liver

A superior protectant against liver damage; Against alcoholic & non alcoholic fatty liver; Against other liver toxins

Brain

Key donor of choline; For age-related cognitive decline and illnesses; Important during pregnancy & infancy

Excipients & Liposomal Agents

  • Emerging platform for nutrient delivery due to their amphiphilic character.
  • Improves the bioavailability of nutrients including phytonutrients.
  • Ideal for nutrients with poor solubility and permeability (BCS class III, IV)
  • Improves the physical characteristics resulting into more convenient and effective functionalized product for the consumer.
  • Classified by US FDA as Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) at all concentrations.
  • Non-genetically modified grades available.

Total Parenteral Nutrition

The infusion of lipid emulsions allows a high energy supply, facilitates the prevention of high glucose infusion rates and is indispensable for the supply with essential fatty acids. Egg phospholipids are used to emulsify 10-30% oil-in-water emulsions for parenteral nutrition. The major components of lipid emulsions are essential omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid, DHA, EPA) and omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid, arachidonic acid).

Sports Nutrition

Active people require greater amounts and higher quality of protein than sedentary people. Regular physical training tends to reduce muscle protein breakdown and protein loss from the body. Proteins help for building muscle and improving muscle recovery after intense workouts.

The bio availability of egg yolk protein makes it a better source than whey protein.

  • Highest content of phosvitin found in nature
  • Free from cholesterol & minimal fat
  • High protein efficiency ratio (PER) with PER of 3.9 out of 4.0
  • High biological value and BCAA content
  • High in sulphur producing amino acids that assist in anabolic hormone production
  • Lactose free and easy to digest

Infant Nutrition

Egg lipids not only mimic the human milk fatty acid composition, they also come naturally with choline (from the phospholipid phosphatidylcholine). They contain cholesterol, vitamin B7 (biotin) and carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin) – all fundamental nutrients in the early development of babies.

Studies also found that they protect the mucosa of intestinal tract against the adhesion of pathogenic bacteria, reducing the risk of severe diarrhoea.

Phospholipids derived from egg yolk have been determined to be Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for use as an ingredient in term and preterm infant formula

Egg phospholipids offer:

  • Better Digestibility and Absorption
  • Better Bioavailability (blood-brain barrier)
  • Better oxidative stability compared to triglycerides
  • Presence of LCPUFA – ARA and DHA
  • Favourable ratio of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids
  • Natural emulsifiers, allowing to avoid synthetic emulsifiers.
