Carotech to Showcase Tocomin at IFT

Carotech Inc., the world’s largest and only GMP-certified palm tocotrienol producer will be exhibiting at the 2010 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo from July 17–20 at

McCormick Place, South
Hall, Chicago, Illinois.

Partnering with the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) at booth number 3349, Carotech will showcase Tocomin® palm tocotrienol complex at this expo.

Tocomin® is a potent natural vitamin E tocotrienol complex concentrated from virgin crude palm oil through a patented mild extraction process which ensures maximum preservation of phytonutrients. It contains predominantly full spectrum tocotrienols and other phytonutrients such as tocopherols, plant squalene, phytosterols, co-enzyme Q10 and mixed carotenoids that are naturally extracted together with the tocotrienols.

Palm tocotrienol complex has recently received the final notification of no objection for GRAS from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Carotech has been actively involved in the process of GRAS application together with MPOB since 2008.

The significance of palm tocotrienol complex being GRAS approved means application of palm tocotrienol complex ingredient like Tocomin® (Carotech Inc.) is now extended to everyday food and beverage products such as margarine and spreads, bakery products, functional beverages and more.

“Tocomin® natural palm tocotrienol complex is a GRAS-approved food ingredient with many unique health benefits backed by strong science. We have many studies using Tocomin® that showed its beneficial effects in cardioprotection and skin health vis-a-vis anti-aging. NIH-funded studies have shown potent neuroprotective action of Tocomin® in preventing stroke induced injuries,” says WH Leong, Vice President, Carotech Inc., “Tocotrienol content in the standard Western diet is trace at best, consumers are therefore advised to look for food and drinks with the right type of vitamin E Tocotrienols,” added WH Leong.

“Carotech is proud to be invited by the Malaysian Palm Oil Board to participate in IFT. We have worked with MPOB for almost 15 years in promoting the benefits of palm oil and palm tocotrienols towards human health.” said WH Leong.
