Turning the ordinary into the extraordinary
Our Bio-Active Ingredients Division takes existing raw ingredients and uncovers better ways to source, process and deliver them. This is how we fulfill our mission of supporting profitable partners, healthy consumers, and, ultimately, a healthy planet.
We are the largest manufacturer of glucosamine in the world and the only producer that makes both glucosamine and chondroitin. Our product GlucosaGreen® is produced via a patented fermentation process from corn which makes it non-GMO, vegan and allergen free. and is a marked improvement over traditional glucosamine supplements. GlucosaGreen® is a marked improvement over traditional glucosamine supplements as a certified allergen-free glucosamine supplement for consumers with shellfish allergies.
What We Offer
When it comes to sustainable nutrition supplements, we look for challenges from the customer perspective and create solutions with tangible benefits. We are constantly looking for opportunities to add value in places where no one else thinks to look.
Our world-class granulation facility can produce standard and custom formulations of glucosamine for a range of finished doses. And our end-to-end process includes a research and development department that advances raw material processes to meet current and future finished dose demands which ultimately leads to efficiency and improved quality.
Our focus is on existing ingredients—first deconstructing, then recreating them as better versions.
“We are driven by sustainability. In addition to ongoing water reduction initiatives, we also own our own ginko farm to allow for greater efficiencies.”
