eFoodSafety Introduces Patented Nano-Encapsulation Technology to Its Products
(Nanowerk News) eFoodSafety.com, Inc. (OTCBB:EFSF) has developed a novel patented technology that has the ability to nano-encapsulate active ingredients in nutraceutical and cosmeceutical products and utilizes a unique food grade compound. This means that the nano-capsules break down and are absorbed as common foods after they have delivered their active ingredients. Cellular absorption of nutrients is maximized while toxicity is minimized. Using this technology, eFoodSafety can encapsulate a multitude of bioactive and active ingredients within any given formula.
The Freedonia Group recently projected world demand for nano-materials to reach $4.2 billion by 2011 and $100 billion by 2025, with widespread use in drug delivery applications as a significant growth factor.
“By introducing nanotechnology to our products, we are broadening our opportunities to treat common health conditions that affect millions of people worldwide,” comments Patricia Gruden, CEO of eFoodSafety. “In addition to our strong product portfolio and promising clinical results, we believe we now have a superior and novel method to dramatically improve delivery of these ingredients. We expect that this advance will have a positive impact on our products.”
eFoodSafety.com, Inc., based in Scottsdale, Arizona, is dedicated to improving health conditions around the world through its innovative technologies.
