Pharmachem New Business Group Targets Food, Beverage Industry

KEARNY, NJ, JULY 6, 2006—Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc., today announced it has created a new business group to focus specifically on the needs of the food and beverage industry. The new Food & Beverage Group will be responsible for identifying custom manufacturing and branded ingredient opportunities across all Pharmachem companies.

“We’re using the same business model that has made Pharmachem a global leader in nutritional markets to penetrate more conventional food and drink categories with our custom processes and branded ingredients,” says Gregory Drew, named New Business Manager of the group.

Pharmachem recently launched StarchLite®, an all-natural ingredient for use in the food and beverage industry, which has been shown in clinical studies to delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates; and reduce the glycemic index (GI) and caloric impact of starchy foods. Pharmachem also represents several other branded ingredients, including AdvasterolTM plant sterols and Lactium®, a hydrolysate of milk proteins with relaxing properties.
