Enzymotec's R&D team developed a new production method that enables manufacturing of high grade PS: PS70 and PS90, in addition to other extensive products in its SharpPSTM line. These new grades are produced under high quality standards and comply with current GMO free European regulations.
"The new grades are most suitable as bulk active for dietary supplements, functional food and pharmaceutical applications," says Dorit Plat, PhD, R&D manager at Enzymotec. "SharpPS high grades provide manufacturers a wide range of PS solutions such as manufacturing significantly smaller capsules by using small bulk volume with the same RDA amount. It answers the consumers' need for smaller capsules size without compromising on the required RDA. Moreover, the high grades enable increasing the PS amount in the capsules without changing the capsules size and create stronger formulation of PS for better cognitive performance. Indeed, formulating products with high PS grades ensures the producer gains a competitive edge in the market."
SharpPSTM premium grade, PS90, is also suitable for pharmaceutical applications. All PS grades are highly stable, easily tableted and have long shelf life. The new grades are available in powder form and characterized by excellent flowability and color.
