Fairfield, CA - Nutra Products, Inc has announced that Lisa (Westing) Trexler has joined as Director of Research and Development. In that capacity Lisa will be developing new processes and products and providing technical support for its customers.
Lisa applied the assays for Allicin and other key marker compounds in Garlic to develop a commercial process for standardized nutraceutical grade Garlic. She also led the team that developed the process for odor controlled and odorless Garlic for Pure-Gar, when it was owned by Basic Vegetable Products.
Lisa collaborated with Dr. Steven Wood of BYU University, Dr. Larry Lawson and Dr. Bronwyn Hughes of Plant Bioactives, to implement HPLC and qualitative testing of Garlic through all stages of development (from seed to finished product). Because of their pioneering work, Pure-Gar was the first to market nutraceutical Garlic standardized for five key marker compounds.
NPI is a major supplier of nutraceutical Garlic to dietary supplement marketers. New NPI products include: Garli-EzeTM High Allicin, Buffered Garlic and NutraSelectTM SuperFloTM naturally Odor Controlled Garlic. For more information about these new products and/or the standard granulated and powdered Garlic, please visit Nutraproduct's website at www.nutraproductsinc.com.
