Dolcas Biotech receives zero-carbon certification, launches liquid beadlet for its olive oil ingredient

Dolcas Biotech is now Zero-Carbon certified in compliance with PAS-2060, which is the only internationally recognized certification for organizational carbon neutrality.

Dolcas Biotech, LLC (Landing, NJ) received Zero-Carbon certification for its desert-grown TruOliv organic olive leaf and fruit extract, in compliance with PAS-2060, which is the only internationally recognized certification for organizational carbon neutrality.

“Protecting the environment is not just about reducing the impact of emissions,” said Shavon Jackson-Michel, ND, director of medical & scientific affairs for Dolcas Biotech, in a press release. “It also involves restoring the land and empowering rural communities—especially in low socioeconomic zones—to instill a sense of pride and self-sufficiency.”

Some of the regenerative systems employed in the production of TruOliv include:

  • Recently installed drip-irrigation systems that avert unnecessary loss of water
  • The continuous planting of extensive olive groves to resist further desertification in Morocco
  • A circular economy system, whereby the olive extract side stream (pits and branches) is upcycled into smoke-free charcoal briquettes to be used for barbequing, dental preparations, and other horticultural practices

The company also launched a new liquid beadlet encapsulation formulation for its olive extract. The microencapsulated actives float through an oil-filled capsule and minimize capsule loads for more compact delivery of powdered extracts, making it easy to swallow and with enhanced bioavailability. The beadlets are wrapped in a sustained-release coating for slow timed release of the actives.
