US: ADM gets FDA nod to expand CardioAid
Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) has received authorisation from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to use its cholesterol-reducing CardioAid plant sterols in a wider range of food products.
ADM said it has received a letter from the FDA which greatly expands the GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) categories for CardioAid.
"Until today, the range of food products which could be fortified under GRAS status with plant sterols was very narrow," said Steven J. Furcich, president of ADM Natural Health and Nutrition. "However, ADM's letter from the FDA now allows food companies to incorporate CardioAid brand sterols into many of their other consumer products. No other sterol ingredient available today has been evaluated for so many new GRAS food categories."
Food companies will now be able to incorporate CardioAid plant sterols in products such as mayonnaise, salad dressings, pasta and noodles, healthy beverages, sauces, healthy bars, salty snacks, adult ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, fruit/vegetable juices and some milk-based products including ice cream and cream substitutes.
