LONG BEACH, Calif., Nov. 5, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- BI Nutraceuticals (BI), one of the world's leading suppliers of dietary supplement ingredients to nutritional supplement, pharmaceutical and food ingredient manufacturers, today announced the new registered trademark status for its UltraHD(r) brand of high density powders and teas. The dense herbal powders increase flexibility and enhance versatility in product formulation. The new product line is marketed under the UltraHD or UHD (Ultra - High - Density) trade name.
The patented UltraHD process, developed and implemented by BI, has been successfully used by the company for both herbal powders and nutritional supplements, and alters the physical character of the botanical powders without altering the product's potency or chemical constituents. This physical alteration is achieved without the use of fillers or excipients, resulting in pure, flowable and more compressible powders.
"Our patented system creates herbal powders that are denser, more granular and generate less dust. As a result, BI's customers of UltraHD Herbal Powders can improve their manufacturing efficiencies and product quality, in a cost effective manner," said Peter Hafermann, BI's vice president of marketing and sales.
BI, founded in 1977 and headquartered in Long Beach, California, is a full service supplier of dietary supplements. BI manufactured products undergo quality testing under the Identilok(r) species identification process. BI's products include whole herb powders and teas, standardized and drug ratio extracts, custom blends designed for specific indications, vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements.
