Gencor Pacific Group Picks Up Frost & Sullivan Global Appetite Suppressant and Satiety Ingredients Product Innovation of the Year Award
Date:11/11/2008

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2008 Frost & Sullivan Global Appetite Suppressant and Satiety Ingredients Product Innovation of the Year Award is presented to Gencor Pacific Group for successfully creating an effective appetite suppressant ingredient - Slimaluma - for the global weight management market. The compelling scientific validation, unique mode of action, superior quality and safety standards of Slimaluma have established it at the forefront of the weight management ingredients market.

"Gencor Pacific Group's Slimaluma is a unique ingredient that has been scientifically validated for its efficacy and safety in human consumption," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Natalie Watt. "A weight management ingredient like Slimaluma is critical for the success of the weight management industry, which seeks to control the ever-increasing global obesity epidemic."

Gencor Pacific Group has conducted clinical trials, toxicity and molecular studies to ensure the safety and efficacy of Slimaluma. The six toxicity studies conducted by the company are of particular significance as no other supplier has executed such measures in the weight management industry for any new ingredients.

"The product was conferred Generally Recognised as Safe (GRAS) status in 2006," comments Watt. "In addition, the company's proactive quality assurance programmes such as Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and documentation have given it a head start from a scientific and commercial viewpoint."

Slimaluma has dual and complementary properties useful in weight management, namely hunger control and fat reduction, which makes it a unique ingredient. This was proved in a clinical study where participants reported statistically significant hunger reduction, as well as loss of waist circumference and fat loss.

"The mechanism of action was confirmed in a cell line study at a cell and molecular level," adds Watt. "Slimaluma is, thus, the only scientifically validated appetite suppressant ingredient to combine fat reduction and appetite suppression."

Gencor Pacific Group has tailored Slimaluma to suit varied customer manufacturing needs and provide stability for customers who want to use the ingredient in food applications. Accordingly, it offers heat, acidic and alkaline stability.

"Such versatility has allowed Slimaluma to successfully penetrate a wide range of applications within a short time period," remarks Watt. "Slimaluma is currently used across beverages, smoothies, capsules, tablets, chocolate, meal replacements and baking applications."

The product has been successfully sold in diverse geographic regions including Japan, Malaysia, North America, South Africa and South America. Since its launch in the North American market in 2005, Slimaluma has experienced steady sales growth; in 2008 the ingredient was present in 30 different brands.

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Innovation of the Year is presented to the company that has demonstrated excellence in new products and technologies within its industry. The recipient company has shown innovation by launching a broad line of emerging products and technologies.
