Our Products

Botanical Extracts

Caif offers a wide range of extracts from natural sources, carefully tailored to our market and customers' needs. Phytochemicals can also be concentrated, combined and transformed into the best formula to achieve the desired functionality. Adding an extract to your product will add value and potency to your formulations.

Fruits & Veggies

Fruits and Vegetables contain nutrients, vitamins, fibers, and phytochemicals, which are a clean-label, versatile and efficient way to enhance virtually any formulation, from baked goods to cosmetic applications. Different drying technologies, fruit content, and particle size can result in a wide range of product compositions, textures, flavors and aromas.

Herbs and Spices

Aromatic ingredients used in preparation of food sauces and condiments to impart flavor and aroma, stimulating sensorial qualities to dishes.

Natural Fibers

Fibers promote several health benefits in the gastrointestinal tract by favoring the proliferation of beneficial gut flora to reduce spikes in blood-sugar levels, speed intestinal transit and increase satiety.


Highly concentrated flavors extracted and concentrated from plant sources for enhancement of sensorial experiences in taste and aroma.

Natural preservatives and antioxidants

As customer preference for clean-label ingredients deepens, chemicals once-used in food preservation are being replaced by natural alternatives. Plant or fruit-based antioxidant extracts and vinegar-based antimicrobials are among the newest health-focused ingredients designed to naturally extend the shelf life of packaged foods.


We offer a variety of value-added functional ingredients to address specific health-promoting benefits. Our selection includes: nutraceutical amino acids, dairy nutrients for immunity enhancement, naturally-sourced vitamins, isolated plant bioactives and plant-based proteins.


Açaí – excellent source of flavonoids and omega-6 and omega-9 oils with great a nutritional profile

Acerola – natural source of high vitamin C content

Guarana – rainforest fruit packed with caffeine for energy and alertness
