XSTO has announced that the entire nutritional ingredient line produced by their principal Hamari Chemicals, Ltd. has become kosher-certified by the Kosher Certification Service (KCS). This includes Hamari’s PepZinGI® brand Zinc-L-Carnosine, CarnoLife® L-Carnosine and BenfoPure® Benfotiamine. Certificates have been issued and a Kosher notation may now be noted on the consumer packaging.
“We take great pride in offering nutritional ingredients with the highest attention to quality and safety. This Kosher certification confirms our commitment to produce the best possible products and to meet the needs of our consumer base,” said Mr. Tokiro Takami, President, Hamari Chemicals, Ltd.
Kosher certification requires rigorously monitoring of all aspects of production. It supervises the process by which the ingredients are prepared, examines the raw materials and regularly inspects the production facilities to make sure that its standards are met. “This certification further distinguishes the attention to quality by Hamari on their nutritional ingredients,” stated Dan Murray, Vice President of Business Development at Xsto.
HAMARI is a cGMP manufacturer of ingredients with FDA inspected production facilities in Japan. The two companies have an established relationship having worked together to market HAMARI products in North America.
