New York, NY—IFF Health has introduced a new website that brings together the expanded capabilities of the newly merged IFF Health and HOWARU businesses. The resource hub is a launchpad that provides brand partners and co-manufacturers technical insights, updated market intelligence, and comprehensive microbiome innovation resources, according to a press release.

“Whether you’re just getting started in the microbiome space or you’re an established manufacturer, product intelligence is a value-add,” said Natalia Melo, North America Commercial Marketing Manager, IFF Health, in the release. “Our goal was to create a go-to hub that empowers brands to understand the full life cycle of a strain and formulation development and equip them with the resources needed to feel confident in formulating their next-level product.”

On the site, users can access:
  • Information on the science behind probiotic strains and clinical trials on benefits.
  • Tools to help users identify personalized strains and formulations for their target audience.
  • A monthy “What’s the Gut?” podcast series that focuses on harnessing the power of microbiome innovation and intelligence, targeting emerging brands and product categories.
  • On-demand immersive virtual educational summits designed to address users’ market needs.

Brand owners looking to personalize their products can explore probiotics and botanicals combinations with IFF’s market-ready health and wellness solutions, the company said, and learn about possibilities for finished formats at the IFF Health Concept Lab.
