Utah-based Albion Human Nutrition has announced the addition of two self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) ingredients to its existing line of patented amino acid chelates.
The GRAS status of its Calci-K and DiMagnesium Malate ingredients was affirmed by an independent panel of experts after a rigorous scientific review, said the company.
“Both Calci-K and DiMagnesium Malate have been studied extensively by Albion for their bioavailability with results indicating very positive results,” said Max Motyka, Director of Sales at Albion. “Receiving self-affirmed GRAS status is a great accomplishment for Albion in broadening the scope of application for these ingredients.”
Calci-K is a complex that consists of calcium, potassium and phosphorous that is specifically designed for use in fortification of liquid food products. And, DiMagnesium Malate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium.
