Brenntag Food & Nutrition and Monaghan Group Announce New Exclusive Distribution Agreement
The Brenntag Food & Nutrition business unit in North America, part of the Brenntag Group, announces an exclusive distribution agreement with Monaghan Group in the United States and Canada.
The distribution agreement covers the ingredients manufactured under the innovation arm of Monaghan Group, MBio. MBio has developed clean-label ingredients derived from mushrooms. The ingredient line includes Vitamin D Mushroom Powder, Vitamin B12 Mushroom Powder, and Whole Mushroom Powder and can be used in food, beverage, nutraceutical, and supplement industries.
“We are pleased to announce our new relationship with MBio as their exclusive distributor in the United States and Canada. MBio’s innovative products are a great addition to our product portfolio and allow us to provide differentiated value to our customers,” said Larry Davis, President of Nutrition Americas.
Some of the nutritional benefits of mushrooms include
- High in protein
- High in fiber
- Low in fat and no cholesterol
- Low in salt and sodium
- Source of minerals such as selenium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and copper
The Vitamin D is produced by exposing mushroom powder to light and is essential for bone health, as it helps assimilate calcium in the body. This vegan source can be used for nutraceutical and dietary supplements, as well as beverages and food applications, such as meat analogs.
Vitamin B12, which is derived from mushrooms, plays a crucial role in brain health, red blood cell formation, normal function of the nervous system, and regulation of the immune system. It is also known for fighting fatigue and enhancing energy levels. Whole Mushroom Powder is a source of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. It offers a unique combination of both functionality and flavor, as it is also a source of umami-rich compounds.
“The team at MBio are delighted to be working with Brenntag Food & Nutrition in North America. The United States and Canada are key growth markets for our products.” shared Paul Grenville, CCO of MBio, “We see a unique opportunity for our wholefood Vegan Vitamin D and B12 Mushroom Powders to create sustainable clean-label solutions for customers when supported by Brenntag’s food and beverage science expertise.”
MBio is the innovation arm of the Monaghan Group, one of the world’s largest mushroom producers with operations in Ireland, UK, Europe and North America. MBio creates powerful, natural superfood ingredients that help people live healthier lives. We’ve harnessed all the benefits of the mushroom to develop a range of powders that deliver a host of nutritional and functional benefits. From a powerful, vegan source of vitamins D and B12 to the rich umami flavour of our whole mushroom powder, our powders are the perfect addition to boost any application.
