PARSIPPANY, N.J., Mar 5, 2004 -- DSM Nutritional Products, Inc. announces the launch of TEAVIGO(TM) -- a natural green tea extract with up to 94% EGCG.
Green tea is well known for its health properties. It has traditionally been used for detoxification and overall good health. Recent studies have suggested that green tea may play a role in weight control and reducing body fat. EpiGalloCatechin Gallate (EGCG) is one of the active components of green tea. Using patented and innovative technology, DSM Nutritional Products extracts EGCG from green tea, resulting in a natural compound with an ECGC content of 94%: TEAVIGO. Unlike other common tea extracts, TEAVIGO is nearly colorless and does not have the bitter taste common in other green tea formulations.
TEAVIGO is a product with superior and consistent quality that is free of pesticides and herbicides. It is available in both powder and granular form. TEAVIGO is optimal for adding to tablets or capsules to standardize the level of EGCG in green tea extracts.
Karen E. Todd, Senior Marketing Manager, DSM Nutritional Products, Inc. (DSM) explained, "TEAVIGO is an off-white powder that is completely water-soluble, producing a clear solution without residue or sediment in liquids. It is not as bitter as other green tea extracts, odorless and nearly colorless, making it excellent for a broad range of multi-ingredient formulations. Unlike less purified extracts, TEAVIGO has virtually no impact on final product properties. High purity allows manufacturers to put more EGCG into a smaller tablet."
High flowability makes it well suited for sensitive applications and improves manufacturing efficiency. To make it easier for supplement manufacturers to create new products containing TEAVIGO, technical experts from DSM Nutritional Products will work together with customer product development teams.
