Fairfield, CA (March 10, 2010) –Scientific Food Solutions (SFS) and Nutritional Impact Corporation (NIC) have signed a trademark license and material supply agreement for NIC to provide FAST-C™ in a soft gel delivery system to both the US and Canadian markets.
“We spent years developing FAST-C, conducting clinical studies, and working on partnerships to strategically introduce this innovative product that we believe will eclipse other Vitamin C ingredients,” said Scientific Food Solutions President Gretchen Reece. “This recent agreement, and the validation we are receiving in nominations and awards, confirms that our vision is starting to be realized.”
FAST-C, the patent pending Vitamin C ingredient innovated by Scientific Food Solutions and distributed by E.T. Horn in partnership as Alkemy Partners, is one of three finalists for the 2010 NutrAward for the Best New Ingredient, and recipient of the NBJ 2009 Scientific Achievement Award.
"We are thrilled and honoured to have been given the opportunity to be the first company to offer FAST-C soft gels to the marketplace,” said Gary Kozai, NIC's COO and Director of Product Development. “Our partnership with Scientific Food Solutions and their innovative ingredient FAST-C is another example of NIC's continued commitment to deliver tangible value to our clients. By pairing FAST-C with our unique, proprietary soft gel delivery system, the FAST-C product will be differentiated when compared to competing brands.”
The subject of two US-based double blind, randomized crossover clinical trials, FAST-C is a premium, faster absorbing and well-retained Vitamin C product. It utilizes a unique, patent-pending composition that provides a buffered and 90%+ acid neutralized Vitamin C, delivering Vitamin C with greater speed and excellent retention in an easily tolerated formulation that fosters greater compliance. FAST-C contains BioPerine, the patented bioavailability enhancement ingredient from Sabinsa Corporation, through a semi-exclusive licensing agreement. FAST-C will received the NBJ 2009 Scientific Achievement Award, and is one of three finalists for the 2010 NutrAward for the Best New Ingredient.
