Hot red peppers have been a universally consumed food source for centuries. Human and animal studies conducted over the past 30 years have shown that red peppers, their extracts and capsaicinoids have tremendous potential as promising and safe options for nutritional supplements aimed at regulating diet and supporting weight management programs. However to date, most industrial formulators have been unable to use conventional concentrated delivery forms of capsaicinoids due to their incompatibility with most tablet/capsule lines, and their inability to address the discomfort and compliance issues for end-users. OmniActive has developed a comprehensive line of capsicum extracts manufactured via the company’s micro- encapsulation process, the patented OmniBead(TM) beadletting technology, which delivers functionally effective levels of capsaicinoids while minimizing the oral and gastric irritation often experienced with unprotected hot red pepper product applications.
