Lipid Nutrition has announced that its PinnoThin satiety ingredient is now GRAS approved. The FDA has issued a “no objection letter” to the GRAS petition for PinnoThin, confirming its GRAS status in applications. The GRAS petition determined that PinnoThin can safely be used in baked goods and baking mixes, beverages and beverage bases, breakfast cereals, dairy product analogs, fats and oils, grain products and pasta, fluid milk and milk products, nuts and nut products, processed fruit and fruit juices, processed vegetables and vegetable juices, snack foods, soft candy, and soup and soup mix applications.
“This latest success for PinnoThin further supports Lipid Nutrition’s commitment to scientifically-based ingredients that provide health benefits for consumers,” said Katinka Abbenbroek, CEO of Lipid Nutrition. “PinnoThin is one of the more well researched satiety products available on the market today for functional foods that a food company could include in their product lines.”
