Switzerland-based company Omya is a global producer of natural calcium carbonate. Its “Consumer Goods” unit covers several application fields within the food and nutraceutical sector. A particular focus is calcium enrichment.

Fortification with Omya Calcipur®
In the field of supplementation, calcium carbonate is a globally recognized source of calcium that allows a number of related health claims. Thanks to its high elemental calcium content, only low dosages of Omya Calcipur® are required to provide a nutritional boost, positively affecting both cost and sensory impact. Possible areas of application include infant nutrition, (breakfast) cereals, bakery products and vegan dairy alternatives.

The ingredient can also be used to produce dietary supplements in solid dosage forms, such as vitamin D + calcium tablets for bone health.

More than “just” enrichment
Omya’s highly versatile calcium portfolio has multiple functionalities: it can act as a fortification agent, white pigment, extrusion aid and release agent for powdery products. Depending on the application in question, different ranges and brands are available to match specific requirements.

Thanks to its role as a global distributor, Omya possesses a comprehensive portfolio of multipurpose ingredients, such as natural food colors, yeast extracts, stevia, vitamins and other food supplements, as well as textured soy protein components. The combination of this vast application know-how with its wide choice of high-quality ingredients enables the company to develop holistic and tailored formulations. This all-round service is appreciated by customers all over the world.

Natural Calcium Carbonate Solutions for Bone Health

Omya highlighted its calcium fortification agent Omya Calcipur at HiE. Thanks to its high elemental calcium content of approximately 40%, it is one of the most concentrated sources of calcium in the market. One of the main advantages of Omya Calcipur is the low dosage needed for supplementation, resulting in reduced costs and less impact on the sensory profile of the final foodstuff. Stefan Lander, Vice President for Consumer Goods at Omya told FoodIngredientsFirst that the combination of calcium carbonate and vitamins D3 and K2, is one of the best solutions you can have for bone health. “We are seeing concern from our consumers relating to bone health, particularly the bone health of children and with middle aged women, such as osteoporosis.  We know the problems surrounding bone health and we are addressing them with our product combinations that we produce.”
