Soy Labs Announces New Strategic Direction

Exclusive Focus on Supplying Innovative Soy Ingredients and Formulaic Compounds to Manufacturers of Finished Products

FAIRFIELD, Calif. April 2, 2008 – Soy Labs®, LLC has made the strategic decision to focus all of its efforts on the company’s core vision, which is to research new and innovative soy ingredients and formulaic compounds. The company will no longer sell finished products directly to consumers.

Soy Labs will continue to sell its CORE® formula, which was the foundation for the CardioTrim® line, to manufacturers of finished products. This heart healthy, weight-loss formula contains AlbumaSoy®, Cissus quadrangularis, chromium polynicotinate, selenium, green tea, vitamins B6 and B12, and folic acid. AlbumaSoy, a novel, patent-pending soy albumin extract with powerful weight-loss and cardioprotective benefits will also continue to be available as a stand-alone ingredient. Both products are available across the United States and internationally.

Work is also continuing on Lunasin XP™, a recently discovered bioactive soy component shown to be one of the key components in soy that is responsible for its cholesterol-lowering properties. This highly anticipated cardiovascular support ingredient is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year.

“This change in our strategic direction will help streamline our operations for faster growth within the nutraceutical, cosmeceuticals and functional food segments,” stated Soy Labs’ President Ryan Schmidt. “By shifting focus to the supply side of the business, we will be able to concentrate on our core vision, which is to research new, innovative soy ingredients, compounds, and extracts.”

Soy Labs is also deeply involved in the rapidly emerging nutritional genomics movement. It is aligned with both national international nutrigenomic organizations and research universities that share Soy Labs’ commitment to nutrigenomics as an important way to improve the health of people everywhere.
