MPOB and Carotech courteously invite researchers, medical doctors and industry leaders and formulators from the dietary supplement sectors to attend this conference to learn about the latest science and health benefits of these emerging red palm oil phytonutrients.

“Emerging scientific evidence continues to reveal beneficial health effects conferred by red palm oil phytonutrients tocotrienol, carotenoids, and the phenolics. It is an honor for Carotech to be part of this important seminar to deliberate on latest research of these superior red palm phytonutrients,” says Bryan See, regional product manager at Carotech Inc., N.J., USA.
