Flakes as Delivery System

Some of the most important dietary needs are phytonutrients and other micronutrients.  The best way of consuming these compounds is eating a diet that contains a diverse variety of fruits and vegetables.  In practice this is not always achievable due to seasonal availability, perishability, quality of fresh produce, cost, and many other reasons.  Verifolia’s technology helps to get important micronutrients into peoples diet sidestepping many of the problems of other options.  Our technology enables us to take fruits and vegetables at the peak of ripeness and extract, standardize, preserve, and deliver them into food products people want to eat. 

Standardization: Verifolia uses formulation and chemical analysis to guarantee a specific amount of a micronutrient in our products.

Preservation: Verifolia’s products are dried for a long shelf life (> 2 years) at room temperature, allowing easy transportation and use in dry mixes for baking, stick packets, salad dressings, marinades, dips and sauces.

Delivery: Verifolia’s products are emulsified prior to drying giving them enhanced bioavailability and rapid uptake.

What makes Verifolia different from other forms of food fortification?

Verifolia can be used for traditional food fortification, however, our technology is more versatile allowing for the fortification of a wider variety of micronutrients. AND conversion into stable dried emulsion increases speed of uptake and bioavailability.  

What makes Verofilia different from dietary supplements?

Vertifolia can be used to make traditional dietary supplements, however, our technology allows for us to capture the diverse nature of micronutrients present in whole plants.

Examples include:

Vitamins:  A, B12, D, and E.

Phytonutrients: Carotenoids, chlorophyll, curcuminoids, ergothioneine,  and polyphenols


Micronutrients: Chemicals that are required for health that are consumed in small quantities such as vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and phytonutrients.

Phytonutrients: Phytochemicals are chemicals of plant origin.[1] Phytochemicals (from Greek phyto, meaning “plant”) are chemicals produced by plants through primary or secondary metabolism.[2][3] They generally have biological activity in the plant host and play a role in plant growth or defense against competitors, pathogens, or predators.[2]

Phytonutrients include:


Polyphenols (Flavonoids, stilbenes, lignan, phenolic acids)(flavanols include catechins, epicatechins and proanthocyanidins)



The phytochemical category includes compounds recognized as essential nutrients, which are naturally contained in plants and are required for normal physiological functions, so must be obtained from the diet in humans.
