Dr. Joseph L. Evans, Manager, Pharmacology with Stratum Nutrition will present "ARTINIA™: An Innovative Fiber for Artery Health as Used in Supplements and Foods" on July 26 at 9:30 a.m. as part of the free, one-day Science Tour focusing on food ingredients held in Chicago at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Dr. Evans will discuss the science supporting ARTINIA's ability to support the body's natural defenses against oxidized LDL-cholesterol and overall cardiovascular health, as well as highlight the ingredient's physical characteristics for food and beverage applications.
ARTINIA has self-affirmed GRAS status, and is approved by the EU Commission as a novel food ingredient. There are numerous food and beverage categories for which ARTINIA is appropriate for use including fruit juices and meal replacement drinks; milk products such as smoothies, yogurt and yogurt drinks; cereal and energy bars, breakfast cereals, pastas, and baked goods among others.
ARTINIA is a high-purity, natural fiber ingredient that supports arterial health. Supporting a healthy heart begins with supporting healthy arteries. Many scientists now support that controlling the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol, not just the level of LDL-cholesterol, is essential for arterial health. This is because the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol within the artery wall leads to a series of inflammatory events, resulting in the formation of fatty streaks in the artery tissue. Given time and the right conditions, these fatty streaks can eventually morph into arterial plaques. ARTINA supports the body's natural antioxidant systems and has been shown to reduce the level of oxidized LDL.
