Knowde expands growing list of healthcare ingredient suppliers

AstaReal and Stratum Nutrition® are now on Knowde

SAN JOSE, CA – FEBRUARY 14, 2024 – Nutrition, healthcare, and pharmaceutical companies can now source active ingredients from AstaReal and Stratum Nutrition® on Knowde, the first company to build software tools that transform how these companies discover, engage, and transact with ingredient, polymer, and chemical suppliers online. 

Knowde makes it easier than ever before for formulators, research and development (R&D) professionals, and procurement teams to find ingredients, request documents, order samples, receive quotes, access experts who can answer technical questions, and place orders from these and hundreds of other suppliers.

“Innovation, sustainability, and the ability to replace petrochemical-based ingredients with biomaterials are key drivers in the nutrition, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industries. Knowde enables formulators and researchers to find what they need fast, to help shorten development time and get new products to market faster,” said Kyle Bastien, Vice President of Sales for Knowde. “Procurement teams can simplify the process of sourcing materials and source new suppliers and alternative materials when supply chain disruptions occur.” 

AstaReal, a subsidiary of Fuji Chemical Industries Co., Ltd., is the world’s first – and largest – producer of commercial natural astaxanthin, the only brand of natural astaxanthin supported by 80 human clinical studies and 160 overall studies. 

AstaReal’s team of globally recognized astaxanthin experts provides its clients with 360 degree R&D, product development, and marketing support worldwide.

Stratum Nutrition®, a business of ESM Technologies, LLC, produces research-supported ingredients for human and pet health. 

Stratum Nutrition® offers progressive, safe, and effective ingredients including NEM® eggshell membrane, Bimuno® GOS prebiotic, LBiome™ Lactobacillus LB postbiotic, Ahiflower® omegas, NatAxtin™ Chilean astaxanthin, curQplus®, and ESC® brand eggshell calcium.

“Being able to filter by chemistry, application, function, technical properties, and more helps formulators, researchers, and buyers find the right ingredient quickly. This is an advantage that Knowde is uniquely able to offer with our proprietary taxonomy and industry leading search functionality,” said Bastien.
