An external expert panel has affirmed the GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status of OmniActive’s OmniXan-RS zeaxanthin ingredient.

The ingredient – 3R, 3’S zeaxanthin – is made from premium marigold flower and manufactured under a fully vertically integrated supply chain, explained the company. OmniXan-RS is part of OmniActive’s comprehensive range of macular carotenoids including Lutemax 2020 Lutein with Enhanced Levels of Zeaxanthin Isomers, Lutemax Free Lutein and Lutein Esters and OmniXan RR-Zeaxanthin from natural paprika.

“With the rising interest and science supporting meso-zeaxanthin, OmniXan-RS helps meet a gap for a stand-alone RS-zeaxanthin ingredient in the market,” ​said Lynda M. Doyle, Sr. VP of Global Marketing, OmniActive. “Like most of the ingredients in our portfolio, we obtained GRAS self-affirmation to further position OmniXan-RS as unique and safe.”
