The ingredient is produced in New Zealand by Anagenix and distributed in the US by Stratum Nutrition
“While New Zealand is GMO free by law, we wanted to take a leadership role and ensure that our product aligned with consumer insights and global demand by having Actazin independently verified as a non-GMO product,” said Chris Johnson, Group Managing Director for Anagenix. “After careful consideration of the organizations that are set up to perform this type of verification, we chose the Non-GMO Project as we believe they have the most credibility.”
Jeremy Moore, President of Stratum Nutrition, added: “Ongoing support of R&D and gaining third party certifications from organizations like the Non-GMO Project underpin the Stratum promise of empowering product innovation. We are extremely pleased to work with companies like Anagenix that share our values and commitment to innovative, safe, and reliable ingredients like Actazin.”
Actazin is a whole-fruit powder derived from New Zealand green (Actinidia deliciosa ‘Hayward’) kiwifruit. As reported recently by NutraIngredients-USA, daily consumption of supplements containing the kiwifruit-derived nutritional ingredients may increase bowel movements in healthy individuals.
