VitaminSpice, Inc. has acquired the assets of Eat Right International, Inc., which includes the recipes for 10 gourmet seasonings and all intellectual property that allows these products to increase a person’s metabolism by up to 25 percent.
As seen on CNBC's “The Big Idea,” the assets that VitaminSpice has purchased include all-natural, flavor- filled gourmet spice recipes that the company hopes will revolutionize the way people eat at home, as well as impact food service and the manufacturing of seasoned food.
The products are based upon Professor Jeya Henry's groundbreaking research on spice-enhanced foods and metabolism at Oxford Brooks University. "It can be used every day, and it really works. I was shocked to discover spice-enhanced foods can speed up metabolism by as much as 20 to 25 percent for several hours," Henry stated. “This can result in the body burning an extra 45 calories for every 700 consumed."
The SKUs and recipes that will immediately become property of VTMS include: Moroccan The Casbah, Creole & Cajun Party, Free Trip To Thailand, Mexican Monty, African Love Dance, French Fling, China’s Five Fingers, A Little Italian, Jazzy Jerk and Pyramid Power. “Each of these flavors represents global tastes and fits into the recent spice industry trend to bring additional flavors to the consumer,” stated Edward Bukstel, CEO of VitaminSpice.
“We will be integrating these seasonings into our spices, as well as utilizing the calorie-burning intellectual property into additional condiments, including, ketchup, mustard, relish, salsa, hot sauce, BBQ sauce and salad dressings. VitaminSpice will be filing additional patents based upon the IP purchased in this transaction,” stated Bukstel.
