After the BIG food holiday, we’re thinking about our interesting ingredients for the food & beverage markets. AIDP focuses on two segments of ingredients.  The first is our research backed, clinically supported branded ingredients. These provide unique functions for those interested in the intersection of food and supplements. The second segment is clean, ingredients that provide unique functionality to products. Here are our top performing ingredients within each of these segments.
