Hop Extract Takes Science Leap Into Botanical Ingredient Menopause Market

French supplier Naturex has launched a botanical ingredient aimed at the women's menopausal market it claims offers a scientifically-backed alternative to existing menopausal relievers such as soy extracts, flax, red clover and black cohosh.

Although Naturex already offers the likes of red clover and black cohosh as raw materials it said its new ingredient, called Lifenol, had a higher level of supporting clinical data that would bring certainty to what it calls a "confused market".

"It will sell at a premium as a result," Karine Nardon, of Naturex's Actifs Innovants division told NutraIngredients at Vitafoods in Geneva, Switzerland.
