INNOBIO's Astaxanthin certified by EU Novel Food and US FDA GRAS
INNOBIO proudly announces that our FDA GRAS astaxanthin is now newly certified as an EU novel food.
Our astaxanthin, extracted from the natural algae, Haematococcus pluvialis, recieved GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status (GRN.000580) for use in food and dietary supplement applications last year. This year this product also received certification as a novel food under the EU novel food certification process.
Both FDA GRAS and Novel Food Certification are similar in requiring a complete review of the manufacturing processes and safety data of the product by the submitting company from independent panels of expert scientists. Both reviews concluded that INNOBIO astaxanthin is safe for use as an ingredient in a variety of products including beverages, confectionery products and dietary supplements.
INNOBIO specializes in carotenoid manufacturing and our production processes conform to the strict international standards for food safety and preparation. INNOBIO’s products are internationally recognized as high quality, cost effective, and safe alternatives to higher priced products. We look forward to working with more customers to offer natural and healthy products in multiple forms.
