SourceOne Global Partners announced it has formed an exclusive partnership with Ingredients By Nature, the world leader in production and supply of citrus bioflavonoids and polymethoxylated flavones (PMF). SourceOne will serve as the marketing partner, building and managing strategic marketing plans and innovative formulation technologies that deliver market access for Ingredients By Nature citrus PMF and limonoids in the nutritional supplement, animal nutrition, and functional foods & beverage markets.
With over 80 years of analytical experience and expertise, Ingredients By Nature (evolved from Syntech Corporation and Test Laboratories Inc. dba Brewster Foods) is a pioneer in bioflavonoids and extracts from citrus. With a new showcase facility and on-site state-of-the-art laboratory, Ingredients By Nature continues to extend its lead as the premier supplier of citrus PMF, a rapidly growing category with an ever-increasing list of health and wellness benefits attributed to these powerful natural citrus phytochemicals.
“Formalizing our exclusive partnership with Ingredients By Nature continues to allow SourceOne to offer superior citrus PMFs and the reliability our customers have come to expect,” said Jesse Lopez, CEO and founder of SourceOne. “Their technologically advanced extraction, processing, purification and testing processes result in the purest, highest quality, most bio-active PMF’s available. Furthermore, there is an obvious market need for greater formulation expertise and value-added services. Ingredients By Nature has satisfied this need by developing proprietary blending, granulation and state of the art sterilization.”
Conceptualized in 2007, Ingredients By Nature has become the world leader in production and supply of citrus PMFs, bringing a rich tradition of manufacturing, processing and warehousing ingredients.
“The partnership with SourceOne brings to bear the innovative technologies and branded ingredient marketing expertise highly complimentary to the core competencies of Ingredients By Nature,” commented Rob Brewster, President of Ingredients By Nature. “This firm has years of proven success in building the awareness and global market demand for citrus PMFs.”
Most recently, SourceOne announced the launch of PMF-source™ Citrus Flavonoids alone, and in combination with other proprietary bio-actives. These unique PMFs are available in various potencies and delivery forms, including a 100% water-soluble and bio-enhanced form for the functional food and beverage markets. PMF-source™ is also available in solid dosage forms, drink mixes, stick packs, functional food products, beverages and more.
According to Lopez, PMF-source™ is an “ideal” ingredient for the patented VESIsorb® Delivery System for improved absorption and bioavailability. “Utilizing the patented VESIsorb® technology enables us to meet the growing demand for enhanced bio-availability of Citrus PMFs and proprietary formulas,” Lopez said. “This new PMF utilizing the VESIsorb® delivery system is ready for market and for formulating with other science-based heart-healthy ingredients like Omega-3, CoQ10, palm tocotrienol, resveratrol and more.”
SourceOne received the prestigious Frost and Sullivan 2008 Heart Health Product Innovation of the Year Award that specifically recognized PMF-source™ and the VESIsorb® Delivery System.
In 2007, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (November/December, 2007, Vol. 13, No. 6) published the results of several studies that combined PMF-source™ and TocoSource® palm tocotrienols. The largest study, a 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled protocol with 120 subjects, resulted in significant improvements in total cholesterol (-30%), LDL (-27%), and triglycerides (-34%), compared to placebo. In addition, HDL levels increased 4%, resulting in a significant 29% improvement in the LDL:HDL ratio.
