What do functional foods mean for us?

Consumers are constantly seeking new products, especially ones that are healthy and nutritious. At TFTAK we believe that food can have positive effects on health beyond basic nutrition. Therefore, we use our competencies in functional food development to not only provide an exceptional sensory experience, but also to support an overall sense of wellness. We can enhance the value of products either via the use of fermentation technologies, by combining different functional ingredients, or by balancing the macronutrient profile.

We offer solutions in the following areas:

  • Developing clean label products
  • Product reformulation: optimizing macronutrient content (fat, sugar, and salt)
  • Fiber-enriched foods (including prebiotics)
  • Protein-enriched foods
  • Foods enriched with vitamins and minerals
  • Probiotic food development
  • Fermented foods with high nutritional value

We have a special focus on fermentation. We study the complex consortia of microorganisms that ferment various raw materials to develop innovative functional foods and beverages. We try to find the beneficial interactions that result in a rich aroma and taste profile.

Our areas of expertise in fermentation are:

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Non-alcoholic beverages
  • Fermented vegetables

Healthy functional yogurts enriched with fiber developed in cooperation with Nordic Milk

Functional soups enriched with vitamins and minerals developed in cooperation with Kulinaaria OÜ

Functional Near Water beverages developed in cooperation with Värska Vesi

Let us innovate together!
