A new patent on the original and unique composition of its melon SOD B® has just been filed. Bionov is also engaged in a new strategic partnership with Robertet, the world leader of natural flavors and flagrance, for developing and boosting the use of SOD B solutions in food applications.

Patented SOD B unique composition
Bionov has just been filed a new patent on the original and unique composition of SOD B, a dried melon juice highly concentrated in an essential antioxidant enzyme: the SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD). “This patent focuses on the optimal antioxidant capacity of SOD B, which is characterized for the first time of three different SOD isoforms, each having a specific metal enzymatic co-factor and a specific molecular weight,” highlights Mr. Benoit Lemaire, business and marketing director of Bionov. This specific composition of SODs “confers to SOD B a synergistic and optimal antioxidant capacity,” he adds. This new patent strengthens the efficiency of SOD B as the best source of SOD available on the market.
