"AHD's corporate philosophy over the past 10 years has remained to provide our customers with high-quality, research-based ingredients manufactured in adherence to strict cGMP quality assurance guidelines," stated John Alkire, president, AHD International. "We continue to seek out unique offerings that allow our customers to meet the changing needs of their specific consumer audience. These new ingredients not only exceed AHD’s stringent quality standards, but allow us to service a variety of industries and markets."

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is cold pressed from fresh mature fruit with no harsh additives or conditions during processing. The Oil contains no trans-fatty acids, requires no refrigeration and is a natural source of vitamin E. In addition to its food applications, it is a unique functional ingredient for cosmetics, hair products and massage oils. Coconut Water is an excellent nutritional ingredient for sports drinks and other functional beverages, delivering the highest levels of potassium, calcium, vitamin C and iron to naturally restore the body's electrolytes. RV Industries provides the only Coconut Water product sourced from mature coconut; young coconut products are known to contain high levels of sugar.

LuraLean is a condensed, water-soluble, dietary fiber formula designed to effectively help support weight loss. LuraLean is manufactured via a proprietary extraction process that delivers a raw material that is free of enzymes and impurities, ensuring it does not break down as it passes through the gastro-intestinal tract. More than 14 safety studies and 60 clinical trials have been conducted using LuraLean, confirming it has no adverse side effects at the recommended amount and is effective in promoting weight loss, maintaining healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range and supporting regularity. LuraLean is available in several grades so it can be used in a range of applications including dietary supplements, high and low-viscosity beverages, and functional foods including soups, ice creams and all types of baked goods.

Chia seeds are a gluten free, vegetarian wholefood naturally rich in omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, antioxidants, calcium, protein, amino acids, as well as a comprehensive range of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. They are highly stable due to their antioxidant content, offering manufacturers an ingredient that not only delivers superior nutritional properties, but also won't compromise the shelf life of finished goods. These natural super seeds can be used in a variety of functional food and beverage applications.
