RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, CALIFORNIA – BI, the largest global supplier of plant-based dietary supplement and functional food ingredients, will be launching its new hemp product line at this year’s SupplySide West on October 17-18, 2019 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nevada. Its new product line will include a Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Powder and several Hemp Protein Concentrates, available as conventional or organic. Attendees of SupplySide West will be able to preview BI’s new hemp product line, along with its newly released high nitrate arugula powder and fermented product applications, at booth #FiNA 2851.
Backed by over 40 years of experience, BI uniquely provides industry defining quality standards and technologies to a market replete with unsound manufacturing and inconsistent product. BI’s new hemp products undergo stringent quality analysis which includes heavy metals, pesticides, and the company’s Identilok® species identification process with DNA verification to guarantee the highest levels of product purity, authenticity, and cleanliness. It is treated with BI’s Protexx HP® Green Steam sterilization, a species-specific organic sterilization method with a validated kill step – not with irradiation, ETO, or Methyl Bromide.
“BI’s hemp products strictly adhere to the highest quality standards in the US, and redefines the hemp supplier market with a commitment to quality. It opens the door to those with interest in hemp applications that are concerned with quality, consistency, lead, heavy metals, pesticides, chain of custody, and sustainability to ensure the highest quality ingredient offering,” said George Pontiakos, President/CEO of BI. “BI’s new hemp product line is manufactured and tested in SQF certified, FSMA and cGMP compliant facilities, offering customers the safety, security, and peace of mind that BI has long been recognized for.”
BI’s Director of Extract Manufacturing, Mike Wagner, will serve as moderator at the SupplySide West Summit: CBD from Seed to Shelf: The Supply Side Story. The Summit will take place on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 from 9:00 AM-5:00 PM on Level 3, South Seas E.
