“TensVida represents a major breakthrough to help maintain normal blood pressure,” said Pete Willis, Senior Marketing Manager, DSM Functional Foods. “Opening up a new sector in the functional foods market, tensVida enables manufacturers to develop a wide range of food, beverage, and dietary supplement products, which can offer specific heart health benefits.”
DSM has announced that its blood pressure management ingredient, tensVida (formerly known as TensGuard) has won the NutrAward for the most innovative, evidence-based health and nutrition ingredient at Nutracon. Entries were judged against key criteria for scientific merit, efficacy, and market potential. The name change is a part of DSM’s strategy to align its portfolio of functional ingredients under the new umbrella brand Vida.
