Sabinsa Corporation has received Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status for its branded ingredient Cococin, featuring coconut water solids, after an intensive review of safety and toxicology data by an independent panel of scientists assembled by Soni & Associates, Inc.
According to the company, the GRAS status allows cococin to be used as a nutrient in a variety of foods and beverages. It is patented in the U.S. and Europe for its use and is a standardized composition of freeze-dried coconut water solids obtained from immature coconut fruit.
“Achieving GRAS notification within the target timeframe fulfills one more milestone in Sabinsa’s development program to better serve our partners in the food industry,” stated Dr. Muhammed Majeed, founder and chairman, Sabinsa Corporation. “By obtaining GRAS status, not only does the assessment demonstrate the safety of our product, but it also opens other doors for our company.”
