Clinics in Dermatology (2009) 27, 210–216 Novel botanical ingredients for beverages Analyze and Realize AG, Waldseeweg 6, Berlin 13467, Germany Abstract Natural substances are generally preferred over chemical ones and are generally seen ashealthy. The increasing demand for natural ingredients, improving health and appearance, is alsoattracting beverages as the fastest growing segment on the functional food market. Functional beveragesare launched as fortified water, tea, diary or juices claiming overall nutrition, energy, anti-aging orrelaxing effects. The substitution of so called superfruits, such as berries, grapes, or pomegranatedelivers an effective range of beneficial compounds, including vitamins, fatty acids, minerals, and anti-oxidants. In this context, new exotic and African fruits could be useful sources in the near future. Teasand green botanicals, such as algae or aloe vera are also rich in effective bioactives and have been usedtraditionally. The botanical kingdom offers endless possibilities.
