The Promise of Scientific Rigor
Our leadership position in branded ingredients comes from our robust, global R&D infrastructure, the development of innovative delivery systems, as well as close collaboration and education with our partners. Clinical research is the cornerstone of our ingredients and the bedrock of our demonstrated efficacy.
Research & Development is the backbone of everything we produce. Our global R&D center leads product development, setting the standard for ingredient and extract excellence; focused on developing new products and methods of delivery, isolating new plant bioactives and establishing novel analytical measures for differentiation and purity.
We currently manage our R&D processes out of two facilities:
Hinjewadi Biotech Park, Pune
Our India-based centers are focused on the development of new extract products and delivery forms. Our facility in Pune, in close proximity to our manufacturing site, conducts extensive work on extraction, isolation, and purification of nutritional bioactives. This facility seeks to improve existing extracts and ingredients, as well as develop new product offerings.
Talwar House, Thane
Our Thane R&D center houses our analytical and formulations teams. Our Analytical team establishes analytical measures for ensuring the differentiation and quality of OmniActive ingredients. Our formulations team develops new products and technologies for a wide array of applications and delivery forms to address customer needs and challenges.
“Our OmniBead Beadlet Technology and UltraSOL Nutrient Delivery System solve some of the greatest challenges that supplement manufacturers face.”
Technologies that revolutionize our industry are those that allow manufacturers to add beneficial amounts of an ingredient without compromising the product’s integrity and potency.
A “smart” coating system that allows an ingredient to be incorporated into a large variety of applications and finished products despite challenges with organoleptic characteristics or stability of nutrients.
Nutrient Delivery System
A unique technology that converts lipophilic compounds and poorly absorbed nutrients into water-dispersible ingredients for enhanced bioavailability.
