Nutraceutical market today has reached a high level of complexity and specialization; it is thus recommended that every ingredient’s efficacy is adequately supported by scientific studies.
C.F.M.’s Scientific Support department evaluates and shares, also in form of periodic newsletters, scientific documentation that comes with the nutraceutical ingredients. Moreover this function also considers the implications that scientific studies and EU regulations on efficacy and safety (i.e. Health Claims, Novel Foods and regulations on contaminants) may have on the potential market of the ingredient.
Scientific Support is therefore a useful service for customers that consider scientific marketing a mandatory instrument for a correct marketing positioning and for successful products.
