Throughout the millennia, citrus has been consumed for health, vitality and cleansing. Ingredients by Nature (IBN) is the leading source of citrus-derived ingredients and other natural products. Specializing in R&D, analysis, processing and manufacturing of high-potency citrus bioflavonoids and extracts, IBN's portfolio includes polymethoxylated flavones (PMFs), HO-PMFs, eriocitrin, eriodictyol, naringin, naringenin, hesperidin, hesperitin, neohesperidin, diosmin and limonoids; as well as custom, made-to-order citrus bioflavonoid complexes, citrus pectins and fibers.
IBN uses its multiple processing-plant locations for core R&D and for extraction/analytical expertise for other nutraceutical specialty ingredients, such as alfalfa extracts, plant proteins, probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, certified organic powders and other botanical powders.
After doubling the size of its production facility, IBN now provides a full line of value-added, toll powder processing services: blending/premixing, milling, granulations/density adjustment, sterilization and related processes. They can accommodate formulations of all sizes.
Adding to IBN's full-service capability, a state-of-the-art laboratory is located on site. This third-party lab provides chemical analysis, microbiological testing, and full-spectrum analysis of nutraceutical ingredients. This give IBN the ability to assist their customers with consistent manufacturing and innovative R&D.
IBN holds CCOF, USDA Organic, NSF and Kosher certifications. Quality is the cornerstone of the company. The dedication to quality systems from the ground up has allowed the family-owned, third-generation company to thrive for over 80 years.
