Naturally Splendid (TSXV:NSP) has provided the following update on its proprietary omega encapsulation technology HempOmega and the addition of Kelley Fitzpatrick to the advisory board.
Since Naturally Splendid commercialized its first version of HempOmega(TM) in late 2015, the Company has been developing advancing formulations of its Omega encapsulation technology with it’s R&D partner POS-Bio Sciences. The technology has proven to be feasible and economical for multiple applications. This includes the recent Dog Food trials as per the recently announced Canature Processing Ltd. agreement to create HempOmega(TM) infused dog food and treats.
Naturally Splendid HempOmega(TM) updates:
We are pleased to announce that we have created several new versions of HempOmega(TM) for various applications:
HempOmega(TM) Beverages – With the cooperation of Dr. Rick Green, VP of Technology at POS Biosciences, NSE was able to fortify a juice beverage with HempOmega(TM) that delivered a plant based omega formulation solution for the beverage industry. The process incorporated encapsulated materials to inhibit oil oxidation while providing your daily dose of omega nutrition.
HempOmega(TM) Flavored Protein Blends – Naturally Splendid has formulated HempOmega(TM) into two hemp protein powder blends, Isodiol’s IsoSport Pro369 which features four flavours; Vanilla Caramel, Banana Chocolate, Mixed Berry and Tropical Powder – that received Natural Product Numbers “(NPN)”from Health Canada. NSE recently launched its own HempOmega(TM) infused hemp protein drink, NATERAtrademark Hemp Protein 369 at the recent Canadian Health Food Tradeshow “(CHTA)” in Vancouver, Canada.
HempOmega(TM) Bakery – Naturally Splendid along with the Saskatoon Food and Development Centre, was able to create a successful unleavened bread product that incorporated HempOmega(TM). This HempOmega(TM) version provides a solution to the frozen pizza, flat bread industry to incorporate plant based omegas as an ingredient into their products.
HempOmega(TM) Pet Food – Working with the Alberta Food Development Centre, NSE created a nutritious pet food (dry kibble for dogs) that incorporated HempOmega(TM). Our technology resolved the loss of lipids in the extrusion process. Testing conducted on the pet food prototypes demonstrated the profile for ALA, GLA, SDA from HempOmega(TM) survived the rigorus heat intensive manufacturing process. This demonstrated that HempOmega(TM) is suitable for pet food applications.
Read full company profile.
HempOmega(TM) Livestock Feed – Animal studies were conducted at the university of Manitoba with the cooperation of Dr. James House, which demonstrated improved efficacy and bio availability for both broilers and layers. The thigh meat of the broilers and the eggs of the layers were analyzed and showed higher expression of omegas versus “normal” feeding methods.
HempOmega(TM) Cosmetics – Naturally Splendid worked with Dr. Jeremy from the USA to create a topical solution that addressed anti-inflammation and joint pain by combining HempOmega(TM) with CBD. The antidotal feedback from Dr. Jeremy and his team was the immediate relief of joint pain.
HempOmega(TM) Emulsion and Powder – The emulsion is the liquid precursor to the powdered version. The HempOmega(TM) powder increases the range of uses and applications depending on the manufacturing processes. Both the emulsion and the powder are commercially scalable and approved for animal and human consumption
All of these versions are designed to be tailored to the specific needs of the product. NSE will continue its development of HempOmega(TM) for other markets.
Naturally Splendid CEO Dave Eto States,” These versions of HempOmega(TM) technology represent the initial stages of the many possible applications that are yet to be discovered. As mentioned in previous news releases our IsoSport Pro369trademark formulation and new Canture pet food and treat products are an example of HempOmega(TM) applications.
While our current main focus is with hemp, it is important to understand that our omega encapsulation technology is not limited to hemp oil, but is in fact, applicable to any plant-based omega oils such as flax, chia and algae to name a few. We are in discussions with multiple companies covering the fore mentioned versions of HempOmega(TM) and I look forward to sharing our progress as these discussion mature.
