C.K. Foods Inc. and CK Nutritional Ingredients Announce The Launch of Re-designed Corporate Website

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 30, 2009

Canadian consumers of dietary supplements and natural health products are entitled to have access to products that are proven safe and effective in human clinical trials. This can be a challenge, as there are various products and brands on store shelves that utilize ingredients that are of inferior quality and that lack good science. Toronto-based raw material supplier CK Nutritional Ingredients ( is looking to change this and it has recently updated its corporate website to reflect new products that are based on extensive scientifc substantiation.

“There is no question that the majority of the public would prefer to take natural supplements to treat various ailments and to boost their overall health,” says Michael Chernyak, Managing Director of CK Nutritional Ingredients. “If the natural products industry is to survive and even thrive, it absolutely must produce supplements that are proven safe and effective. From a commercial standpoint, the temptation to formulate products with unsubstantiated low-cost raw materials can be significant, but in the long-term it will undoubtedly cause considerable harm to the industry as a whole.”

CK Nutritional Ingredients has taken great care in seeking out and selecting vendors who are focused on quality, science and innovation. Preference is given to proprietary ingredients that have been the subject of at least one well-designed human clinical study, and that deliver benefits that consumers can feel. “Supplement users want products that are experiential,” states Jim Bornhold, Director of Sales for the company. “Whether it’s a formulation that boosts energy, reduces stress, enhances mental clarity or alleviates joint discomfort, it’s critical that the product deliver a benefit users can feel. This will go a long way toward ensuring repeat purchase and ongoing loyalty to natural health products.”

CK Nutritional Ingredients’ business model is centered on the representation of branded, evidence-based nutraceutical raw materials in the Canadian market. It partners with U.S. and international ingredient developers who wish to maximize their penetration of the Canadian market without having to dedicate significant resources do to so. It is a model that is proving to be effective – four leading non-Canadian vendors have come aboard, and negotiations are in progress with several more. “We are always on the lookout for innovative suppliers who are committed to good science and who want to establish a strong presence in Canada,” added Chernyak.

This is all good news for Canadian supplement users. Expect to see an increase in the number of products on the market that improve health and wellbeing, and have the science to back them.

Americans Look To Food To Improve Health 2011 IFIC Functional Foods Survey Looks at Awareness & Consumption of Food For Health Benefits

Americans Look To Food To Improve Health
2011 IFIC Functional Foods Survey Looks at Awareness & Consumption of Food For Health Benefits

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 04, 2011

Maintaining health and reducing risk of disease is at the forefront of many consumers’ minds as they age. New research from the International Food Information Council shows that Americans cite cardiovascular disease (46 percent), weight (32 percent) and cancer (22 percent) as their top health concerns. Along with these issues that can affect us as we age, almost one in five Americans (19 percent) cite healthy aging as a top health concern.

The 2011 IFIC Functional Foods/Foods for Health Survey, also shows that people often look to food for its health benefits. Ninety percent of Americans can name at least one food and its associated benefit and 76 percent say that functional foods, or foods that can promote health, can have a meaningful impact on their health when they consume them.

The foods and food components Americans look to the most to help improve or maintain their health are:

1)    Fruits and Vegetables

2)    Fish/Fish Oil

3)    Dairy

4)    Whole Grains

5)    Herbs & Spices

“Americans have made it clear that they want to take advantage of the health benefits of food,” according to Elizabeth Rahavi, RD, associate director of Health and Wellness at the International Food Information Council. “But it’s not just fruits and vegetables that can have a positive impact on our health. There are lots of healthful components like antioxidants, fiber, whole grains, and soy found in a variety of foods and beverages that can make a difference in our health as we age.”

The top components with benefits mentioned in the survey include calcium (92 percent) and vitamin D (90 Percent) for bone health, protein (87 percent) and B vitamins (86 percent) for overall well-being, omega-3 fatty acids (85%) for heart health, and probiotics (81 percent) and fiber (79 percent) for digestive health.

Still, Americans struggle to incorporate these key food components into their diets citing the top barriers as expense, taste and availability.

“Consuming foods for health benefits doesn’t have to be expensive,” according to Rahavi. “Just taking simple steps such as choosing a whole grain cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt for breakfast each day can go a long way to improve health over time.”

The 2011 IFIC Functional Foods/Foods for Health Survey randomly sampled 1000 U.S. adults and is the seventh version of the Survey dating back to 1998. Other topics in the Survey include attitudes toward health, awareness of 34 different diet and health relationships and top sources of nutrition and health information.

A copy of the 2011 IFIC Functional Foods/Foods for Health Survey Executive Summary is available at as is the International Food Information Council Foundation Foods for Health video series featuring expert tips for eating for a variety of health benefits including healthy aging, weight management, digestive health, immune health and heart health.
