As there are so many different functional ingredients on the market it can often be a challenge to decide which one is the right for your new product. From meeting consumer trends and needs with ingredients that really work, through to quality, sustainability, and traceability- finding the direction to go in can be daunting. At Sibelius, our motto is that we only launch the best ingredients from the best source, but how do we achieve that?
The Secret Weapon To Our Ingredient Portfolio
We began our functional ingredient journey as a spin-out of Oxford University with our propriety Chronoscreen™ platform, and now we start every new ingredient journey with the patented assay screening tool. Chronoscreen™ is a testing solution for whole extracts that allows us to confidently select the best ingredients from the best source to further enhance the development in consumer health products.
How does it work?
Chronoscreen™ utilizes the roundworm, Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), a whole organism model with many physiological similarities to humans including a digestive and nervous system. Chronoscreen™ measures the lifespan in populations of C. elegans and their responses to different nutraceutical ingredients.
Striving to assist human health
Given the strong correlation of the pathways of cellular ageing between animal species, our premise is that these ingredients should also have beneficial effects on human health. Using the results from our assay, we can confidently choose the best ingredients for our portfolio.
Natural Ingredients, Powered By Science
Once we’ve confidently selected the best ingredient from the best source using science, we then look at the additional factors that make up an award-winning ingredient. As a team, we review scientific literature, conduct in-depth reviews of the suppliers, visit the farms for full traceability and review all practices for sustainability. Then we move onto proving our experiential ingredients meet consumer needs with clinical trials.
By working with Sibelius, you can be sure you’re formulating with the best of the best to meet your consumers' needs for natural, experiential products that keep
your customers coming back for more.
