Kemin (Des Moines, IA) reports that the Thailand Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) has approved Kemin’s BetaVia Complete immune health ingredient, granting it Novel Food status. The algae-derived beta-glucan ingredient can now be used in food supplements for humans in Thailand at a daily dose of 375 mg.

“BetaVia Complete is derived from Euglena gracilis, Kemin’s proprietary strain of algae known for its high level of beta-1,3-glucan and protein content, which also contains essential fatty acids,” the company’s press release states.

BetaVia also holds regulatory approvals in the U.S. and European Union. The ingredient “helps train the body’s natural defenses, supports respiratory tract health, and protects intestinal barrier integrity,” the press release states.
