Groundbreaking Iron Fortifier SunActive Fe: Best New Product
A novel iron fortifier by Taiyo, a leading manufacturer of functional ingredients, received the NutrAward for Best New Product at the 2003 Nutracon/Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, the world's largest natural products conference and exposition.

Taiyo developed a novel ferric pyrophosphate compound (SunActive Fe) for use in foods, beverages and supplements. It remains suspended in liquid products, is stable against heat, salt, pH and oxidation, has no iron flavour or change in colour, causes no gastric toxicity or irritation, and has superior absorption and bioavailability.

According to Scott Smith, vice-president of Taiyo International, "Compatible and non-reactive iron compounds are needed for fortification as they have less 'iron taste' compared to soluble iron. The relatively poor bioavailability and insolubility of such compounds, however, has generally restricted their use in the fortification of foods and beverages." E-mail Scott J.

Magistral for Men Only is a safe, natural and fast-acting herbal liquid remedy proven to consistently help support and maintain prostate health.
