The global nutraceutical market, usually has various specific production lines for manufacturing nutraceuticals, functional foods, fortified foods, dietary supplements etc. Due to increasing rapid growth due to globalization, urbanization, increasing consumer awareness about healthy lifestyle and overall wellbeing, proactive nutritional approach in controlling non-communicable chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, pulmonary diseases, Alzheimer’s disease etc and demand of the general public for innovative, safe and cost-effective food of high quality providing multiple physiological and mental benefits, boosting immune function in a single entity in addition to providing basic nutrition.
It is very important for the nutraceutical industry to focus on product development technologies and solutions, standardization of manufacturing processes, Packaging and branding, managing compliance to strict regulatory requirements while managing the manufacturing costs / kg.
Nutraceuticals, with variations in their composition, source of raw materials, manufacturing methods, extraction procedures, analytical techniques, have complicated the process of providing uniform and consistent products to consumers. Delivery of nutraceuticals via microencapsulation, liposomes, or Nano carriers is a tough task due to various reasons and factors affecting the manufacturing process and packaging methods. The safety of nutraceuticals can get compromised by the presence of heavy metals, contaminants, pesticides and adulterants. The above-mentioned challenges associated with production, standardization and authentication of raw materials and finished products, detection and quantification of contaminants and impurities, formulation development, maintenance of the integrity of the components during shelf-life, transportation and during intestinal transit in vivo, commercialization with proper labelling are linked primarily to absence of right partners to provide with various solutions for manufacturing & packaging. Implementation of process optimization, current Good Manufacturing Practices(cGMP), exploration of advanced analytical techniques, and adherence to regulatory guidelines will ensure safe and effective products.
