Ayana Bio and Robertet have joined forces to create exciting new product prototypes featuring Plant Cell Advantage™ (PCA) Lemon Balm and Echinacea-purpurea for SynBioBeta. These functional gummies were developed using ingredients derived from cultivated plant cells, which guarantees that they are free from contaminants, solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals, and are fully traceable.
Ayana Bio will showcase the versatility of PCA ingredients with two delicious prototypes: blueberry acai gummy infused with Lemon Balm PCA for stress relief, and tarocco blood orange gummy enhanced with Echinacea-p PCA for immune support. The Ayana Bio booth #56 will feature these first two PCA ingredients at the global synthetic biology conference, SynBioBeta, from May 23 – May 25, in Oakland, California. This is a unique opportunity for visitors to experience our plant cell technology first-hand.
Frank Jaksch, chief executive officer of Ayana Bio, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “These delectable gummies demonstrate how effortlessly product developers can create offerings that consumers will love which incorporate Ayana plant cell ingredients. Our Plant Cell Advantage™ ingredients empower the industry with clean-label, sustainable options that are DNA-fingerprint certified, free from adulteration, contamination, pesticide residue, and the inconsistent quality caused by agricultural and climate variation. We welcome collaboration with CPG companies to address the challenges they face in sourcing high-quality botanical ingredients and to develop solutions that meet future market demand.”
Arnaud Adrian, senior vice president naturals, Robertet Flavors USA, emphasized the delicate balance achieved by their flavor expertise, stating, “Robertet’s fusion of art and science ensures authenticity and exceptional taste in every application. The blueberry acai and tarocco blood orange flavors exemplify our ability to harmonize flavor and functionality for the dietary supplement and functional food and beverage markets.”
