FDA recent review in favor of listing alginates as dietary fibers

Earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration published a review clearly in favor of listing Alginates as dietary fibers. 

In short, the conclusions are the following: " (...) the strength of the evidence supports that alginate has a beneficial physiological effect on post-prandial glucose levels. The evidence from which scientific conclusions could be drawn supports our decision to propose to include alginate in the definition of dietary fiber (....)"

At Algaia, we observe everyday an acceleration of the demand in ingredients, actives and compounds derived from algae and, more specifically, the expansion of the applications in which brown algae extracts are incorporated. This proposal is broadening the scope of applications of alginates by extending their functional benefits and potential claims.
