Nutravail is a leading contract manufacturer serving national retail chains and brands. Nutravail’s products focus on delivering the growing menu of nutraceutical ingredients in great-tasting formats. The Company’s portfolio includes soft chews, spun matrix flakes and ingredient encapsulations, each produced with a patented process. The Company’s flagship product line is the uncooked soft chew. This versatile process allows Nutravail to incorporate many nutraceutical ingredients that cannot withstand the high temperatures of a traditional confectionery process.
Uncooked Soft Chews –a patented confectionery matrix that can be processed without introducing significant heat (less than 45ºC). This patented process gives Nutravail the unique ability to deliver high loads of functional ingredients in a great tasting, candy-like format.
Spun Matrix Flakes – an encapsulated powder produced without the use of solvents or water. Spun Matrix Flakes uniformly disperse the most difficult ingredients, enhancing functionality, while unlocking fresh, clean flavors.
Flash Shear Beads – a lipid encapsulation ideal for taste masking and timed release of active ingredients.
Company Background Nutravail began as Fuisz Technologies over 20 years ago as a company dedicated to research and development of new drug delivery systems. After being acquired by Biovail Corp. in 1999, the Company's name was changed to Nutravail Technologies and its focus was shifted to developing functional food and beverages and dietary supplements. It was from this effort that the Company developed its patented, uncooked soft chew process.
In 2006, a private group purchased the Company from Biovail and transformed it into a contract manufacturer of dietary supplements. Since 2006, the Company has experienced a dramatic increase in demand for soft chews and it is constantly developing new products and increasing manufacturing capacity to meet that growing demand. The Company also continues to develop various ingredient encapsulations.
