Vitafoods Insights:

Welcome to our December reflections & prediction series. Shall we welcome today's expert?


I'm Cosimo Palumbo, dietary supplement leader at EMEA DSM. As top takeaway from 2021, I see a race to stand out in a busy immune health space with fast growing vegan and sustainability claims in the EMEA region. There was also a strong link to formats that have been prioritised seeking a less mutational touch with again, eco and vegan features. As top areas to watch in 2022, we expect continued interest in immune supporting here solutions, but also an innovations that offer holistic health in gut & brain. Human milk oligosaccharides HMOs are set to become the next big ingredient in immune and gut health. But also watch out for new personalization solutions that pair premium ingredients with faster and greater bioavailability.
