SoluBlend Technologies has announced that its technology to convert functional oils into water-soluble ingredients including omega3 fatty acids, resveratrol, CoQ10, vitamin D, vitamin E and others have successfully achieved self-determined GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) status. The process involved an intensive review of safety and toxicology data by an independent panel of qualified scientists with extensive regulatory, pharmacology and toxicological experience.
"Achieving self-affirmed GRAS status for water-soluble lipid products assures our customers that they can safely use these clinically validated ingredients in an array of foods and beverages aimed at improving consumers' overall heart health," stated Dr. Richard Staack, CEO of SoluBlend Technologies. “With this new patented technology, we are now opening up opportunities to provide shelf-stable, value-added and clear fortified beverages and foods that never existed on the market.”
SoluBlend’s exclusive water soluble technology allows a wide range of popular fat-based nutraceuticals such as omega 3 fatty acids, CoQ 10, phystosterols, vitamins A,D, E, and other functional lipids to be blended into a variety of functional beverages and foods for the first time in a tasteless, odorless lipid. Now consumers can get the added benefits of fat soluble nutraceuticals in juices, enhanced water, gummy and fruit snacks, carbonated and non-carbonated beverages, energy drinks, teas and other warm beverages such as soup and coffee where functional lipids have been difficult to incorporate. Additionally, fortifying products with SoluBlend’s ingredients does not impact the clarity, taste, texture or appearance of the end product and is cost effective at efficacious doses.
