Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
Tiger Botanicals, a division of Irvine, CA based Herbal Teas International, Inc., in partnership with Baobab Fruit Company, Senegal (BFCS), will be featuring a wide range of quality botanical products—including Baobab Fruit Powder and pure Baobab Seed Oil—at Supply Side West Expo (Booth 17078) in Las Vegas, NV, from October 12th through October 13th, 2011.
In addition, a VendorWorks Presentation, free to all registrants, will be held Wednesday 12th at 8.00 am to discuss Baobab, it's history, nutritional values and potential product applications. The presentation will be delivered by Dr. Cino Rossi, the co-founder and V.P. of R & D for Physion, an Italian drug delivery company founded in 1990. This is a rare opportunity to learn more about Baobab from a pioneer in the industry. Dr. Rossi will also be in attendance at the booth during Show hours.
Dr. Rossi and Physion have been associated with Baobab Fruit Company Senegal for the past eight years. The two companies have collaborated closely on the development of several Baobab products, most notably Baobab Seed Oil extracts. Dr. Rossi is a frequent speaker on drug delivery technology, scientific development and corporate marketing at industry events and conferences.
Tiger Botanicals is the leading direct-from-source US importer and distributor of Baobab and other unique African botanical ingredients such as Rooibos, Hoodia and Irvingia to the food, beverage, nutritional and cosmetic industries. The company has warehouse facilities on both the East and West coasts and is able to guarantee prompt shipment for fast selling items.
Baobab, is being touted as the "new Superfruit" and Hugh Lamond, President of Tiger Botanicals, says that he "fully expects several new, high profile products to be introduced into the market by leading food, nutraceutical and cosmetic companies during the next twelve months". He went on to say that, "recently there has been a noticeable increase in shipments of Baobab Fruit Pulp Powder and Seed Oil to the trade and products incorporating Baobab are now more readily available through Internet sites and also finding their way on to supermarket shelves."
Last year, an article in National Geographic noted that the fruit pulp is used as a natural source of fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and high levels of antioxidants derived from vitamins C and B. These naturally occurring nutrients have attracted the attention of the food, beverage and nutraceutical industry.
Baobab fruit pulp powder is GRAS and Novel Foods approved and also available in NOP certified Organic form. It can be used safely as a natural, functional ingredient in a variety of products including juices, yoghurts, cereals, energy drinks, smoothies, ice creams, fruit powders, chewable tablets, fruit bars, etc. In addition, Baobab seed oil, leaves and bark can all be utilized in the beauty and cosmetics industry to manufacture creams, masks, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and exfoliates. Overall, the wide range of usage of the Baobab fruit makes it a highly valuable natural resource.
