German functional food and supplement maker WellPlus Trade is developing a bar prototype to contain Israeli firm Enzymotec's heart-healthy MultOil.

The capuccino-flavoured prototype is aimed at adults wishing to reduce the risk of heart disease. It contains 1.5g of MultOil, a phytosterol ester and DAG formula launched by Enzymotec earlier this year. This quantity of oil offers a third of the daily phytosterol-esters needed to reduce cholesterol, suggests the firm.

"This new bar comes with delicious cappuccino taste and is also high in protein,"​ said Karsten Pistor, CEO of WellPlus Trade. "It allows adults to enjoy snacks between mealtimes while maintaining a healthy lifestyle."

Pistor added that the prototype is the first functional bar in a line of advanced nutrition bars to be developed by WellTrade Plus for different age groups.

MultOil is made up of 25 per cent phytosterol-esters and 15 per cent DAG. It has no trans-fats, and its non-hydrogenated form also offers good emulsifying properties, controlled viscosity and melting point.

Enzymotec​ also makes InFat, a new fat ingredient designed for infant formulas.
