NuLiv Science (Brea, CA) has announced that its InnoSlim ingredient is self-affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) after the firm engaged AIBMR Life Sciences, Inc. to convene a panel of experts qualified by training and experience to evaluate the safety of food ingredients. This panel evaluated whether the available scientific data, information, and methods establish that Innoslim is safe under its intended conditions of use in food.
“This has been a lengthy process as the road to GRAS has become considerably more difficult as well as time and resource-intensive. We are grateful to offer another ingredient to the industry that is independently reviewed and vetted,” said Richard Wang, president of NuLiv Science, in a press release.
InnoSlim is a weight management ingredient composed of highly purified and fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus produced by a proprietary pharmaceutical extraction and processing technology.
