Purdy, MO, and Trumbull, CT—INS Farms and NutriScience Innovations have launched Eldermune, a combination of elderberry and Sunfiber, in certified organic and conventional, according to a press release. Eldermune was developed by INS Farms and will be marketed and supplied by NutriScience.

Eldermune’s elderberry juice concentrate and the soluble prebiotic dietary fiber branded as Sunfiber work together to enhance the absorption of elderberry’s nutrients in the digestive tract. It can be used both in dietary supplements and in the beverage market.

Alan Yengoyan, President/CEO of NutriScience, said in the release: “The use of Sunfiber as a functional carrier brings these synergistic benefits to the consumer by harnessing the immune benefits of elderberry and the prebiotic benefits of Sunfiber. Eldermune is 100% water soluble elderberry juice powder made with elderberry concentrate that is dried with Sunfiber.”

Eldermune is created with a low-temperature drying process to help maintain higher levels of polyphenols and anthocyanins, fundamental to elderberry’s activity. Sunfiber is Monash University Low FODMAP Certified, making it useful for adults suffering from IBS and similar conditions. It is also non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and Kosher.

Devon Bennett, CEO of INS Farms, said in the release: “This agreement will enable us to strengthen our position as a major elderberry grower, manufacturer, and supplier in the nutraceutical industry. NutriScience has strong roots in the natural ingredients industry, which makes the company a preferred partner for Eldermune.”
