Press Release 2000

Sabinsa Corporation has developed a colorless standardized turmeric root extract: Tetrahydrocurcuminoid, which will be introduced at Natural Products Expo West, March 24-26 in Anaheim, California. This breakthrough has applications for dietary supplements as well as cosmeceuticals.

Sabinsaís original, patented standardized turmeric root extract, Curcumin C3 ComplexÆ, is a patented bioprotectant and multipurpose antioxidant, yet its topical applications are limited due to its staining effect. It can also present difficulties in a manufacturing environment because of its intense color.

The new colorless extract, also patent pending, was developed by a proprietary extraction process involving the parent curcuminoids that results the formation of tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC). Equally important to the off-white color material is the fact that all of the biological properties are preserved to yield a minimum 95% curcuminoids content.

There is some evidence that the white tetrahydrocurcuminoids may be 4 to 5 times more potent than yellow curcuminoids, meaning a lower dosage is required. Research is ongoing to explore and validate this theory.
