Lonza is one of the world's leading suppliers to the pharmaceutical, healthcare and life science industries. The Life Science Ingredients division reflects Lonza's focus on ingredients used in Nutrition.

Lonza is a leading manufacturer of L-Carnitine, sold under the brand name Carnipure[TM] Due to a unique manufacturing process, Lonza offers pure L-Carnitine.

Lonza offers FiberAid[TM] prebiotic, a naturally occurring water soluble polysaccharide that has a beneficial impact on the gastrointestinal system. Its beneficial properties such as high solubility, pH/temperature stability and low sensory impact make it easy to formulate into a wide variety of applications.

FiberAid[TM] is certified Kosher and GRAS affirmed for foods and dietary supplements without limitations.

Another addition to Lonza's portfolio is ResisAid[TM], an all natural, multifunctional product from bark and wood of Larch trees. ResisAid[TM] consits of the soluble polysaccharide arabinogalactan and bioactive flavonoids, which helps support healthy immune function and has antioxidant capacity.
