EU Approval for Fermented Resveratrol

The approval, earned by Danish firm Fluxome, adds fermented resveratrol to the EU’s list of approved resveratrol forms.

Fluxome (Stenløse, Denmark) has earned EU novel foods approval for its fermented resveratrol to be used in EU food supplements. The approval adds fermented resveratrol to the EU’s list of approved resveratrol forms.

The company’s resveratrol is a non-synthetic form derived from a patented fermentation process. Fluxome says it can assure a purity level of at least 98% trans-resveratrol with the ingredient which is also “completely free” of heavy metals and pesticide residues.

On top of the new European market approval, Fluxome resveratrol earned GRAS status for the U.S. market last year.
