Unibar Corporation enters curcumin market with launch of branded CurQnetic™

New enhanced-bioavailable CurQnetic curcumin is now available in the marketplace.

(Houston, TX) September 1, 2011 – Unibar Corporation, the Houston-based supplier of herbal extracts to the dietary supplement and food industries, has entered the curcumin market with the launch of its branded CurQnetic™ curcumin. Unibar will be the exclusive U.S. distributor of the new enhanced-bioavailable 80% curcumin.

CurQnetic™ is comprised of curcumin powder, vanilla and ginger extract. The addition of these herbal ingredients substantially increases the bioavailability and bioactivity of curcumin. CurQnetic™ curcumin has been the subject of in vitro and in vivo efficacy studies that supports immune function and healthy inflammatory response.

CurQnetic™ Curcumin, exclusively manufactured by Synthite Industries, the largest manufacturer of oleo resins and flavors in India, as well as the largest processor of curcumin in the world, has filed for a U.S. patent.

"Curcumin extract currently in the marketplace is 95 percent total curcuminoids," says Sevanti Mehta, Unibar president. "These curcumin products appear to have poor absorption, distribution, excretion and rapid metabolism, creating a need for an enhanced-bioavailable ingredient," adds Mehta.

Unibar has begun discussions with dietary supplement and functional foods manufacturers in the U.S.

"Unibar offers an immediate, cost-effective quality plus enhanced-bioavailable curcumin with a long-term supply," stated Mehta.

"The eventual primary marketplace includes consumers seeking a natural, research-supported option to fight aging and chronic diseases. It may also be used by consumers looking for a natural retail product alternative to NSAIDs for short-term relief of aches and pains." Mehta said.

A Unibar Corporation representative will be available to discuss CurQnetic™ Curcumin at the FCC Products booth 16028 at SupplySide West in Las Vegas, October 12-13.
