GENEVA, May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — “Clear and credible,” said one judge. “An Excellent, comprehensively completed submission,” said another panelist. Overtaking many competitors, and analysts’ expectations, CreAgri’s HIDROX® took the Nutraceutical Industry by storm on May 11, 2011 in Geneva at the Nutraceutical Business Technology Awards ceremony.
Held in parallel to Vitafoods’ Europe Expo, the NBT Award is the recognition of the decade long leading role that CreAgri has played in the discovery, and the development, of healthy applications for polyphenol derived from the juice of organic olives.
Conferring CreAgri the award for Outstanding Application in Health Management the international panel of judges, convened in the Swiss city by NBT Magazine, agreed that CreAgri’s entry into the contest not only described the creation of a powerful, natural antioxidant, but also the development of a cutting edge, patent protected technology–The IntegraleTM–to produce Hydroxytyrosol from olive milling waters, and to reduce the environmental impact of olive oil production.
“The winning company firmly believes that its product represents an important milestone in the development of natural products with powerful human health benefits,” wrote the NBTA judges in their final decision. Strong competition for the award came from Naturex, Gumlink and Cognis.
HIDROX® is CreAgri’s trademarked hydroxytyrosol formulation, a powerful polyphenol scientifically recognized for its anti-oxidant properties and efficacy in heart and joint health. HIDROX® is the only olive polyphenol formulation with GRAS certification, meaning that it has been subjected to the most comprehensive set of safety and clinical efficacy tests. HIDROX® is also covered by the largest number of international patents for applications that include hydroxytyrosol and olive polyphenol.
