Innovative food and beverage applications for science-backed ingredients will be the focus on Tuesday, July 26 during the SupplySide Science Tour at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. (near Chicago's O'Hare Airport). As part of the free, all-day event, Embria Health Sciences’ Dr. Stuart Reeves will take the stage at 1 p.m. to discuss Embria's ongoing scientific investment in and formulation potential for EpiCor(R), a year-round immune health ingredient.
"Clinical research behind EpiCor continues to develop, as we have documented further evidence of its positive effects on the immune system in May's Journal of Medicinal Food," noted Dr. Reeves, referring to results from a double-blind, placebo-controlled study showing EpiCor's rapid activation and modulation on several key immune health processes. "Along with a science overview to-date, session attendees will learn more about EpiCor's versatility for inclusion in functional beverages, chews and even yogurts."
