HPE Ingredients is now valorising the snail shells with Helishell.
Indeed, the snail shell is naturally rich in calcium, composed of 98% of calcium carbonate, a natural and bioavailable form of calcium for the body.
This ingredient (in the form of a fine powder) can be used in the formulation of food supplements for subjects with a calcium deficiency. For example: growing teenagers, post-menopausal women, seniors suffering from osteoporosis, etc.
HPE Ingredients is launching Helidigest®, a new natural formulation composed of enzymes extracted from snails (cellulase, laminarinase,…), fennel, turmeric extracts and a probiotic strain.
The combined action of these ingredients contributes to improve intestinal comfort, relieves the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and reduces abdominal pain.
Indeed, the enzymes naturally present in the snail are able to degrade insoluble fibers and thus reduce their irritating effect on the intestine.
The extracts of curcuma and fennel bring an anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic action.
Finally, the probiotics allow to act on the balance of the intestinal flora by bringing „good bacteria“ and by limiting the development of pathogenic bacteria.
HPE Ingredients is now certified Organic since April 12, 2021 for „nutritional products extracted from snails“.
This certification guarantees, according to the European regulation EC n°834/2007, that the products are respectful of the environment, biodiversity and animal welfare and that they do not use chemicals or GMOs.
A first ingredient is already available in Organic, HELIZYM, an enzymatic cocktail extracted from the snail’s flesh.
