Dry Creek Nutrition, Inc., the American company providing health-promoting ingredients, announced on June 7 that ActiVin® grape seed extract earned GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) approval by the Flavour and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA). Scientific evidence was submitted to FEMA to validate ActiVin®'s safety for inclusion in food products. "Achieving GRAS status reinforces ActiVin®'s status as a safe and high-quality brand. Consumers will have more opportunities to reap its health benefits," said Peter Kovacs, President and CEO, Dry Creek Nutrition, Inc. Providing more antioxidant power than vitamins C, E or beta-carotene, ActiVin® has benefited from lots of research, with more than 90 scientific publications, abstracts and presentations reporting its health benefits. It is currently sold as a dietary supplement and can now be used in foods and beverages. Independent research studies with ActiVin® show that it can protect against the damaging effects of internal and external stresses. Source: Dry Creek Nutrition, Inc.
