According to Sendhil Pani, head of international marketing, the commodity ingredient marketplace is robust, and innumerable natural product marketers may benefit by formulating with non-branded commodity ingredients. However, due to mistrust caused by suppliers that sell compromised or adulterated ingredients, Bayir Group and Bayir Inc. have developed Bayir Gold ingredients that pass strict tests for authenticity, quality and safety, providing full traceability. Some of the key Bayir Gold ingredients include boswellia, garcinia, glucosamine and chondroitin, and a wide range of herbal extracts for supplements and functional foods, natural colors and oleoresins.
Commodity ingredients, as with patented materials, are also subject to FDA regulations, and Bayir looked to those and GMPs as the source of its inspiration to create Bayir Gold. Further, explained Mr. Pani, the development of its ingredients and supporting comprehensive documentation program was enhanced by Bayir's vast experience in manufacturing technology, quality control and regulatory compliance.
Mr. Pani added that patented, proprietary branded ingredients certainly have their place keying specific formulations; the IP portfolios and vast scientific and clinical investments made by such suppliers support their use. Yet when it comes to commodity ingredients, those that can be authenticated, qualified, quantified and traceable are equally as valuable. "Commodity ingredients that offer such substantiation must be viewed as economically as well as qualitatively valuable choices. Bayir Gold is set to lead the way industry thinks about and formulates with commodity ingredients," he said.
All Bayir Gold products can be customized to meet a wide variety of usage and application requirements. "We encourage ingredient innovation and routinely work on higher assays, solubility, particle size, blends and granulations," Mr. Pani asserted.
