OmniActive Health Technologies

April 13, 2010

OmniActive Health Technologies, Short Hills, NJ, has self-determined that its Lutemax line of free lutein and lutein esters are GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe). The process involved an intensive review of safety and toxicology data by an independent panel of highly qualified scientists with extensive regulatory, pharmacology and toxicological experience. As part of the self-determination process, the expert panel was provided extensive ingredient information including the background of the ingredient, usage history, summary of anticipated daily intake and literature research. Upon completion of the material review, the panel then conducted a safety assessment. OmniActive is also currently in the process of securing self-affirmed GRAS status for its newest offering, Lutemax 2020, which delivers both lutein and zeaxanthin isomers
