DSM TEAVIGO(TM) EGCG Is GRAS Self-Affirmed Opening New Opportunities For Food and Beverage Manufacturers

(October 18, 2006, Las Vegas, Nevada) TEAVIGO™, a natural EGCG purified from green tea extract by DSM Nutritional Products, is self-affirmed GRAS (GENERALLY RECOGNIZED AS SAFE) for a variety of food and beverage products. Now more food and beverage manufacturers will be able to capitalize on the healthful properties of green tea.

Research suggests that EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), the major active component in green tea, is associated with anitoxidant and weight management benefits. DSM develops EGCG from green tea extract utilizing patented technology, enabling TEAVIGO™ to offer the benefits of green tea without affecting taste. TEAVIGO™ is 100% natural with an EGCG content of up to 94%, the highest level on the market.

Proven safe and effective, the high purity of TEAVIGO™ enables supplement manufacturers to formulate more EGCG into smaller dosage forms. Suitable for a broad range of applications, TEAVIGO™ can be included in beverages, energy bars, confections, cereals and dietary supplements.
