Taiyo is becoming the next-generation quercetin supplier for formulators in the food, beverage and supplement industries. This global powerhouse is solving many of the common issues associated with quercetin supplementation. SunActive® IsoQ is a novel isoquercitrin precursor that is completely soluble and highly bioavailable. Formulators love its versatility.

What is Quercetin?

Quercetin is one of the most abundant bioflavonoids. An active antioxidant, it is frequently found in fruit, vegetables, wine and green tea leaves. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals, reducing or helping to prevent some of the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Quercetin has been extensively studied for immune support, anti-inflammatory properties, allergy symptom relief, cardiovascular health, exercise performance and muscle function.

Growing Demand for Quercetin

Marketplace demand for quercetin is predicted to rise from an already robust $261.12 million in 2021 to $406.58 by 2027.3 That’s a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.53%.
Finding the right quercetin supplier can help your food, beverage or supplement excel in this growing marketplace.

Problems Formulating With Quercetin

Despite this surge in demand, driven by the focus on immune health, free quercetin’s solubility and bioavailability issues have long been obstacles for formulators. Low bioavailability and large effective doses have generally made conventional quercetin formulations ineffective as a dietary supplement, inhibiting repurchase.

Improving the bioavailability of quercetin is a highly sought-after benefit to brands trying to formulate with quercetin and consumers who want effective results and smaller pills.

Our Solution: SunActive IsoQ

Water-Soluble Quercetin

Water Soluble Quercetin Graph
SunActive® IsoQ is a novel delivery system that delivers isoquercitrin, which is actively converted to quercetin in the body.

SunActive® IsoQ is derived from rutin, which is extracted from the dried flower buds of the Japanese Pagoda tree using a solvent-free, enzymatic process. The result is a water-soluble dietary ingredient, chemically identical to isoquercitrin found in nature.

This solubilized form of quercetin is 25 times more bioavailable than quercetin itself. This high bioavailability is achieved through an encapsulated matrix that makes it completely water soluble, enabling it to reach the gut where it is converted to quercetin and rapidly absorbed by the gut lining.

SunActive® IsoQ contains the equivalent of at least 11% quercetin, which means that 100 mg of SunActive® delivers an equivalent of 275 mg of quercetin in the body.

SunActive® IsoQ is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by a panel of independent experts, Kosher, vegan and Informed Ingredient certified.

Is Quercetin Water Soluble?

Most quercetin products are not water soluble because quercetin itself is not soluble. This affects bioavailability. Improved solubility means versatile formulation and increased bioavailability. Some formulators counter the solubility issue by using SunActive® IsoQ, a water-soluble form of isoquercitrin.

Our Quercetin in Your Product

Formulating with SunActive IsoQ Improving the bioavailability of quercetin is a highly sought-after benefit to brands formulating high-quality quercetin products seeking to deliver the effective results consumers demand. SunActive® IsoQ is a yellow, odorless powder that is quickly and completely soluble in water. This versatile, highly bioavailable precursor to quercetin is suitable for both powder and liquid applications including:

  • Soft Chews
  • Pet Products

It is a fully soluble replacement for standard quercetin to lower dose size in all formulas. It is ideal for multi-ingredient formulas, and formulations requiring soluble ingredients. Plus, SunActive® IsoQ’s higher bioavailability allows for smaller doses to deliver desired quercetin benefits. Formulators can replace a standard 500 – 1,000 mg dose of regular quercetin with just 180 – 360 mg of SunActive® IsoQ.
