For you.

Your companion for essences and extracts from Hamburg, Germany.

Naturally. For you.

Nutramaxx® is your companion in product development when you are looking for plant extracts, distillates or essences for your products. We make food more natural. We produce tailor-made extracts in consultation with you and also support you in further product development when it comes to topics such as product safety and declaration issues. In doing so, we use our worldwide network for raw material procurement, which we have been steadily expanding since 2005, and are thus able to serve even unusual customer requests. 

Vanilla is of particular importance to us. We develop extracts from vanilla beans from various regions such as Madagascar, Uganda, Tahiti or Mexico. Our focus and expertise in this area have also been reflected in our new logo.

Nutramaxx®. Naturally made. For you.

Extracts are for us as easy as A(pple) — B(anana) — C(itrus).

From the initial idea
to market readiness:

1 How it all begins
/> /> /> /> /> /> /> /> /> />
  • It all starts with your idea and request for a particular product or taste.
  • With counter-questions we clarify for which application the product is and which qualitative specifications it must fulfill. BIO, Naturland or Fairtrade certified? Halal, kosher or baby food? If we have a suitable product in our range by default, we will send you a sample immediately.
  • A suitable product for your wish does not yet exist? No problem, we at Nutramaxx love innovation and the challenge—the journey begins with step number 2 ...
2 Selection of suitable raw material suppliers
  • We create a supplier selection for the suitable raw material with which we can later create an individual sample for your request and clarify the following questions:
  • Do we have all documents and certificates for the raw material? And: Is the raw material available or could there be bottlenecks?
  • We then order a raw material sample from a suitable supplier.
3 Sample Production & Analysis
  • The basis for your individual sample is produced in a rotary evaporator or as an extract or macerate.
  • The process is continuously documented and, among other things, the specifications for the sample are recorded.
  • After the basic sample arrives, an extraction or distillation is performed and your individual customer sample is developed.
  • We perform detailed analyses with information on allergens, pesticides, chemical-physical parameters etc.
  • Finally, we create the final specification of your sample.
4 Your lab tests, our support
  • We will send you your individual sample and you can now start your own tests in the lab.
  • But also at this point we do not leave you alone:
  • If you wish, we will be happy to assist you in creating the recipe or the list of ingredients.
  • We can also develop ready-to-consume samples for you.
  • We are also there for you if you have any legal questions about topics such as sales descriptions or ingredient lists.
5 Final formulation & market readiness
  • The customer sample appeals to you and the end customer product is to be launched?! Wonderful!
  • In this case, we create our final recipe and a process instruction, secure the raw materials in coordination with you and produce a defined quantity with the help of our manufacturing partners so that you can start a pilot production on your plant.
  • In addition, we create your customer-specific specification including documentation and commission further analyses.
6 Delivery
  • The time has come: your individual, tailor-made product is produced and delivered!
Here we show our latest progress.

What we do:

Nutramaxx product idea: children's drink with an extra of vitamin C!


Nutramaxx product idea: children's drink with an extra of vitamin C!

Our pondhopper tea acerola strawberry has it all. Thanks to our acerola powder, our drink is bursting with natural vitamin C. The strawberry extract completes the taste explosion and gives us a fruity frog prince experience. Guaranteed fun for young and old!
Our acerola powder can also be used in many other drinks.

Suitable for Valentine's Day: A box of chocolates


Suitable for Valentine's Day: A box of chocolates

Some time ago we briefly became a chocolate factory: We have brought the wonderful flavor combination of citrus extracts and chocolate to life in this form. The extracts are oil-based and are therefore perfect for use in chocolatey creations. These 4 chocolates with a dark organic chocolate coating and 4 different fillings are our signature flavors:

  • White chocolate meets lime or cedar lemon extract
  • Dark chocolate harmonizes with bergamot or red mandarin extract
    Who would like to try our Valentine's Day chocolates?


Our cooperation with Liquid Garden! (Part 1)

Together with the owners of the Hamburg cocktail bar Liquid Garden Charles Kanteh and Conor Furphy and their team, new drinks were developed last year. In the laboratory we worked together on various extracts with an umami flavor that were used to create savory drinks. You can see what makes this collaboration so exciting in this video:

As a company, we are aware of our responsibility to keep pace with social and sustainable standards.

The world we live in is changing, and climate change is making itself increasingly felt. We are contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way of working by making changes in our organization bit by bit and paying attention to the careful use of resources.

But our attention is not only focused on our daily work processes. For years, we have been actively supporting the association Help Mada e.V. whose mission is to improve the health and education systems in Madagascar. It is close to our heart to make our contribution at this point.

The non-profit association was founded in 2020 and has set itself the goal of working with local partners to support and implement the construction of health clinics and schools in Madagascar. We at Nutramaxx believe that the development of the Madagascan infrastructure offers the local people even more quality of life and development opportunities, which are to be considered sustainable and long-term.
