CARTHAGE, Mo. - Dec. 1, 2021 - PRLog -- Stratum Nutrition®, (a business of ESM Technologies)
"We are extremely gratified to receive approval from FSSAI, as this again validates the substantial scientific portfolio that supports NEM and its health claims. NEM, being ovo-vegetarian, makes a great combination with curcumin-based ingredients for joint health, and this approval should allow NEM to establish its place as an innovative, science-backed ingredient in India's consumer market," said Kevin J. Ruff, Ph.D., MBA, Sr. Director of Scientific & Regulatory Affairs for Stratum Nutrition.
NEM is one of the few joint health ingredients, and the only eggshell membrane ingredient that is supported by a full portfolio of 16 research studies, including: 4 randomized placebo-controlled trials (2 of which are healthy person trials); 4 open label clinical trials (3 of which were conducted independently);
Chris Haynes, Senior Director of Global Sales for Stratum Nutrition, said, "The long-term scientific efforts by Stratum to increase global acceptance of NEM as a joint health ingredient, which is fundamental for the health and well-being of the global population, continues. NEM's exponential success of country-by-country registration clearly demonstrates the scientific validation of its function and results. Governmental agencies require statistically significant science to grant approvals – NEM provides this and continues to gain regulatory acceptance everywhere it enters a market. India will be a solid and strategic market for Stratum moving forward."
Stratum is the global leader in eggshell membrane science and technology for joint health support. For more information about NEM® and other ingredients, please visit www.stratumnutrition.com.
