Fresno, CA, March 1, 2017 – Tamarack Biotics LLC today announced the completion of a self-affirmed “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) for its TruActive™ NF product. This approval enables Tamarack to begin sales of the world’s first food ingredient that contains more immune active proteins than any other product available today.
Generally recognized as safe (GRAS) is an American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designation that a chemical or substance added to food is considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements.
Bob Comstock, Tamarack Biotics CEO, stated, “Our patent pending process enables TruActive™ products to retain more of the natural compounds found in raw milk than ever before. Scientific research demonstrates that these compounds provide valuable benefits for sports and human nutrition alike. Tamarack is now conducting or planning three clinical trials to prove the benefits our products provide for elderly vaccine response, allergy prevention and therapeutic impact on asthma. The GRAS approval we received today represents a critical step in our ability to positively impact people’s health”.
