Lutemax(TM) and Lutemax(TM) CWD – gelatine and lactose-free Lutein

S. Black can now offer the only source of active Lutein in both Ester & Free Forms, known as Lutemax™ that is gelatine and lactose-free. Manufactured by Indian based Omni Actives, it is available in convenient standardised forms of Lutemax™ Oil Soluble, Lutemax™ Beadlets, both for hard gel capsules & Direct Compression and the newly developed cold water dispersible Lutemax™ CWD.

Omni Actives is a recently formed division of Kancor Flavours, an internationally renowned company with global supply capabilities. Product development and quality assurance support from over 50 chemists, full product history and traceability back to original source are just some of the key attributes of this innovative flavour and ingredient company.

Lutemax™, is a standardised extract of Marigold Flowers (Tagetes eresta), that is an abundant source of the functionally important carotenoids, Lutein and Zeaxanthin. The main ester forms present in Lutemax™, Lutein di-palmitate and Lutein mono-palmitate are rich in both actives which show superior functionality than either alpha or beta-carotene because of two hydroxyl groups on the cyclic carotenoid ring structure that results in greater polarity.

Lutemax™ is made from a high quality marigold extract manufactured using Omni Active’s proprietary Patent Pending technology, which has full control on every stage of production starting from the cultivation of their own fields of fresh flowers, through to dehydration and extraction. Special care is taken to ensure minimal heavy metal residues, solvents and freedom from harmful micro-organisms.
