World’s Leading Manufacturer Touts Multiple Food and Beverage Applications with KanekaQ10TM
Pasedena, Texas, June 2, 2006 – Kaneka Corporation of Osaka, Japan, the world’s leading manufacturer of Coenzyme Q10, and its wholly owned subsidiary, Kaneka Nutrients L.P., will make its debut at the IFT Annual Meeting + FOOD EXPO® June 24-28 in Orlando, Fla., highlighting the numerous new applications of its KanekaQ10 product, now also available as a water-dispersible powder.
“Previously, the potential uses for Coenzyme Q10 in food and beverage products was somewhat limited, given that it was only available in oil-soluble versions,” said Tom Schrier, Kaneka Nutrients National Sales Manager. “However, now that we can provide KanekaQ10TM in an emulsified version with 40 percent KanekaQ10TM, it is possible for manufacturers to incorporate this vital substance into a multitude of their products, thus increasing the value of those products to the end consumer.”
CoQ10, manufactured by Kaneka Corporation under the Kaneka Q10TM brand, is a powerful, fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance found naturally in all forms of animal life. CoQ10 is biosynthesized in the membranes of cells in humans and, although it is vital in the production of energy, the body produces less and less of it as one ages.
“Given the increasing buying power of the baby boomer demographic in the United States, the potential appeal of food and beverage products with KanekaQ10TM in them is enormous,” explained Mr. Schrier.
Kaneka Nutrients L.P. representatives will be available at Booth No. 3283 during the show.
