VIRUN® ESOLV® AND PDOBs’ MINERAL CONCENTRATES
Virun and Pacific Deep Ocean Biotech (PDOB) work together to provide an eco-friendly, sustainable solution to providing bioactive ingredients and essential minerals. Virun’s patented EsOlv® is clean label claim and, combined with PDOB’s deep ocean minerals, allows an unparalleled source for bioactive oil-based ingredients such as Omega 3 EPA and DHA while delivering a consistent level of Calcium, Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium.
There has been a growing need to incorporate naturally sourced minerals into foods, beverages and supplements. To meet this need, VIRUN® NutraBIOSciences™ has sought to incorporate mineral complexes into its concentrates, powders and finished products. Combining minerals with oil based ingredients can be complex however, as naturally derived mineral complexes can come paired with high levels of iron or other metals, which can accelerate oxidation of Omega-3 fatty acids and oil soluble ingredients like Astaxanthin, naturally leading to a fishy odor and taste. To solve this, Virun has partnered with PDOB and their Deep Ocean Mineral Complex, which naturally yields a low metal content, to prevent unwanted oxidation of bioactive ingredients. VIRUN and PDOB conducted stability testing on several 16oz beverage applications, and concluded that applications containing EsOlv® products and 25% PDOB Deep Ocean Mineral Complex remain stable for at least one year.
