AppleActiv granted patent

Patent should help drive use of dried apple peel powder in supplements, bars, dry powders, smoothies and marinades.

AppleActiv™, an organic dried apple peel powder (DAPP) clinically proven to support joint comfort and range of motion, has been granted US Patent 8,551,554 for its methods of making and uses of apple peel powder.  

This process for drying and milling fresh apples to a fine powder to extract maximum health benefits was developed by researchers at Cornell University.

AppleActiv offers the antioxidants, polyphenols and flavonoids of organic apples. It contains no additional preservatives, artificial colors, dyes, or additives and is certified organic.

“It’s gratifying that AppleActiv has been recognized for our unique methods of making apple peel powder,” said Lorraine Leahy, registered holistic nutritionist and president of AppleActives. “This official recognition will help drive consumption of DAPP in applications such as supplements, bars, dry powders, smoothies and marinades.”
