Ethical Naturals Inc. (ENI), San Anselmo, CA, recently completed the PCT and U.S. patent application filing process for its ORAC-15,000 natural antioxidant from grapes. The company has now completed filing applications for the use of this antioxidant extraction technology in the production of high ORAC extracts from other fruit sources.
This technology has now been applied to the production of a new Standardized Fruit Blend (SFB), extracted from a wide variety of fruit sources: apple, bilberry, blueberry, chokeberry, cranberry, goji berry, grape, mangosteen and pomegranate. This new ingredient is standardized both for ORAC Value (7500 units/gram) and for polyphenols (40%).
ENI’s technology embodies unique benefits in the production of natural antioxidants for both beverage and supplement use. Principally, it produces a very high, precise level of antioxidant activity, as measured by the Brunswick Laboratories patented analytical methods.
