PinnoThin(TM) wins two awards, the Health Ingredient Silver Award and the Frost & Sullivan Award

Wormerveer, The Netherlands, 5 December, 2006 - Lipid Nutrition ends the year with the receipt of two awards. During the Health Ingredients Europe 2006 they received the Health Ingredients Silver Award 2006 and today Lipid Nutrition is acknowledged with the Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award. Both awards were rewarded to Lipid Nutrition on behalf of their innovative product PinnoThin™, an appetite suppressant.

The Prestigious Silver Award was presented to Lipid Nutrition at the Health Ingredients Europe 2006. PinnoThin™ had to compete with 30 other new ingredients. PinnoThin™, an all-natural, 100% vegetable-based product, was honoured with the Silver Award for its ability to suppress appetite and aid slimming by promoting a feeling of satiety. Because of this, PinnoThin™ can play an important role in helping reduce obesity which is a growing source of a wide range of serious health problems, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes and kidney failure.

Today Lipid Nutrition was honoured yet again with the Frost & Sullivan Award for best Product Innovation. The Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Innovation is presented each year to a company that has demonstrated excellence in new products and technologies within their industry.

Last year Lipid Nutrition also won an award from Frost & Sullivan. They were honoured with the 2005 Excellence in Technology Award in the field of nutraceuticals - nutritional lipids. The Award recognises the company’s development of novel, natural-origin lipid ingredients, particularly breakthrough products such as Betapol™, Clarinol™, Safflorin™, and PinnoThin™.
