Capsimax™ Finalist for NBT Innovative Award

GENEVA–The Nutraceutical Business & Technology (NBT) selected Capsimax™ as a finalist in the Most Innovative Ingredient category in its upcoming awards ceremony at Vitafoods Europe on Wednesday, May 11 at the Starling Geneva Hotel & Conference Center in Geneva.

Capsimax, a hot red pepper extract from OmniActive Health Technologies, Short Hills, NJ, is used in weight management, diet control and sports nutrition formulas. Other companies competing for the Most Innovative Ingredient award include: Carotech, CreAgri, Lallemand, Nichirei and The Agricultural Research Council (CRA).

"The health benefits associated with the active component in hot red peppers, capsaicinoids, are undisputed by modern science," stated Hiren Doshi, vice president, OmniActive Health Technologies. “However, the average consumer has not been able to reap these benefits due to its extreme pungency. With Capsimax, OmniActive utilized breakthrough technology to deliver active capsaicinoids without oral or gastric irritation, allowing the global nutraceutical industry, for the first time, the opportunity to use hot red peppers in a variety of applications, without the burn."

Capsimax capsicum extract is a proprietary encapsulated form of concentrated natural capsicum fruit extract manufactured from hot red peppers that uses OmniBead™ technology.  According to OmniActive, research in both animal and human subjects on capsicum and capsaicinoids indicated significant effects for diet and weight management including increased energy expenditure, enhanced carbohydrate and fat burning and reduced caloric intake.  

OmniActive also supplies a range of other active natural ingredients for healthcare, food and personal care applications.   OmniActive conducts operations from its manufacturing, R&D and corporate facilities at Pune, Mumbai, Thane and Cochin, India. OmniActive's manufacturing facilities are certified for the quality and food safety management systems underISO-22000(2005) and cGMP standard.
