Vitamins and Dietary Supplements

Industry Overview:

The vitamin and dietary supplement industry is navigating competitive but valuable markets as consumers become more interested in alternative and innovative health options. Well-trained employees can ensure that supplements provide nutrients that may be lacking from daily diet – vitamins, fiber, minerals, fatty and amino acids and other substances.

Personnel may develop new vitamins and supplements, oversee clinical trials, or work on other products not based on hormones or drugs. Awareness of varying rules is vital; dietary supplements are classified as food in U.S. but as drugs in some other jurisdictions, making them subject to differing standards.

In such a complex field, it’s imperative to find personnel who not only understand vitamins and dietary supplements, but can also deliver proven knowledge and commercial value.

Common Applications:
  • Preblending, granulation, tableting, coating etc.
  • Synthesis, synthetics
  • Packaging
  • Metabolism and metabolic pathways
  • Energy needs and weight management
  • Allergy care, such as food allergies, headaches, immune deficiency
  • Sports nutrition, involving micronutrients, macronutrients and unique nutrition requirements of athletes
  • Pediatric health
  • Carbohydrates, multivitamins and botanicals, micronutrients
