Carotech, the largest and only GMP-certified palm tocotrienol complex producer in the world will exhibit at the SupplySide West Expo at Las Vegas from 12th – 13th October, 2011.
Recent clinical trials using Tocomin® and Tocomin SupraBio® have shown that they potently support neuro-, cardiovascular and liver health as well as skin nutrition. The patented and bioenhanced palm tocotrienol complex (Tocomin SupraBio®) used in human studies is found to enhance immune response post vaccination, helps in resolving non-alcoholic fatty liver condition (one of the major risk factors for metabolic syndrome) and promotes hair growth. Tocomin SupraBio® is currently being used in the largest ever clinical trial for its effects in neuro- and cardioprotection.
The self-affirmed GRAS with no objection letter from FDA renders Tocomin® and Tocomin SupraBio® safe to be used in everyday food and drinks.
This year at SupplySide West, Carotech has been invited to present a topic at the 3rd Practical Short Course: Functional Food Product Development: Market, Regulations, Bioactive Compounds and Their Utilization. Carotech’s Bryan See (Regional Product Manager) will talk about the unique and novel health benefits of palm tocotrienol complex (Tocomin® and Tocomin SupraBio®) and their application capabilities as a GRAS approved ingredient in formulating functional foods and drinks.
Bryan’s talk is scheduled on:
October 10th (Monday), 4.30 – 5.00pm (3rd Practical Short Course Workshop).
Title : Tocotrienol Products as GRAS Approved Functional Food Ingredients – Science and Applications
“It is exciting to learn that Tocomin® palm tocotrienol complex has gained recognition as a GRAS approved functional food ingredient and we are honored to be invited by the organizers of Smart Short Courses to present the latest science and application potential of Tocomin® at the Practical Short Course Workshop,” says Mr. Bryan See, Regional Product Manager of Carotech Inc.
Carotech is also partnering with the Malaysian Palm Oil Council in organizing the 2nd Palm Fruit Bioactives Workshop which will be held on October 11th. Experts from various fields who have spent many years in researching and formulating with palm bioactives (tocotrienols, mixed carotenoids and palm phenolics) have been invited to present the latest science and applications of palm bioactives. Manufacturers are invited to attend and share their experience or ideas in using these palm bioactives.
“This is going to be a very busy SupplySide West event for Carotech because of all the activities that are going to take place. At our booth, we will give out samples formulated using Tocomin® and Tocomin SupraBio®, so please drop by to say hello. We are really excited and looking forward to meeting potential and current customers at the show,” adds Bryan.
