curcuminIndena has received what it describes as another important acknowledgement supporting the safety profile of its products. Its curcumin phospholipid (Meriva) obtained self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status for use as flavour, flavour enhancer, and/or as a nutrient ingredient in yogurt, smoothies, nutrition bars and medical foods.

The safety evaluation was undertaken by an expert panel in accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety criteria. It concluded that curcumin phospholipid products manufactured by Indena, and being used in accordance with the designated food uses and the use levels described, are GRAS.

The safety profile of Indena’s curcumin phospholipid (Meriva ) is said to be supported by broad-based documentation, including animal studies, metabolism studies, estimated human exposure, in vitro studies and refined chemical characterization.

“Meriva is the most successful Phytosome formulation ever developed by Indena among its nutraceutical ingredients,” said Cosimo Palumbo, Sales Area Manager North America at Indena. “Supported by 22 clinical trials, it is now proven to be safe for use in conventional food. In fact, safety and efficacy of our products have always been a strong commitment for Indena. Our expertise in research and innovation and our care throughout the manufacturing process ensure our customers those high quality standards needed to develop best in class products.”
