Frutarom USA has launched a new line of marine extracts.

The new line stems from Frutarom’s new business relationship in North America with France-based Copalis, a manufacturer of marine bioactive solutions for functional food, dietary supplement and nutricosmetic markets.

New ingredients

The three unique marine ingredients are: Phoscalim, a fish-derived source of calcium; Nutripeptin,  a marine peptide shown to reduce the glycemic effect of foods; and Collactive,  a marine source of collagen and elastin for beauty from within.



Phoscalim provides a highly bioavailable source of calcium to promote optimal bone health. It’s different from other marine calcium sources in that it’s from wild-caught fish.


Nutripeptin can lower the glycemic impact of high-carbohydrate foods and help increase satiety. It’s easily incorporated into powdered beverages and nutrition bars.


Collactive is a natural anti-wrinkle ingredient and is made up of marine collagen and elastin peptides in the same ratio found naturally in skin.
