Orgen-C Amla Vitamin C Granted Self-Affirmed GRAS

April 19, 2016

Orgen-C is standardized to 50% vitamin C from organic amla fruit extract.

Orgen-C, an organic vitamin C from amla fruit extract supplied by Orgenetics (Brea, CA), is now self-affirmed as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).

Since being introduced in 2007, Orgen-C has become the first and only 100% USDA certified-organic vitamin C, according to Orgenetics. With the announcement of Orgen-C achieving self-affirmed GRAS status, the ingredient may now be used in food and beverage products.

Orgen-C is standardized to 50% vitamin C from amla fruit, with the remaining 50% made up for amla co-factors and co-nutrients, such as non-citrus bioflavonoids and polyphenols, says Orgenetics. It is water-extracted from organic amla fruit without synthetic excipients, solvents, carriers, or filler material.
