France –Gardonne (24), November 23 2006 - On November 14th, 15th & 16th of this year the European event of health ingredients took place (Health Ingredients Europe – HIE) gathering 420 most active firms in this sector in strong growth. During this event, the most innovative firms compete in the election of the best health ingredient 2006. The Berkem group (Gardonne – 24) received the Bronze Award for its extract of decaffeinated green coffee to aid slimming: Svetol(R).
This reward, granted for the first time to a natural products extract group, is the fruit of several years of research and implementation, studies and of clinical files.
Svetol®, an innovative green coffee bean extract standardized in active molecules, uses for the first time the natural health benefits of coffee, one of the most worldwide consumed drinks. Svetol® is especially different from other slimming ingredients because of a new and original mechanism of action identified thanks to studies carried out by Berkem and a scientific bibliography study.
Svetol® is unique by its specific composition in different active compounds, of which the efficacy on weight loss has been clinically proven
