Nutrition21 is using Applied DNA’s CertainT authenticity and traceability platform to protect the IP and authenticity of their leading sports supplement ingredient, Nitrosigine®. The companies signed several multi-year agreements to cover Nitrosigine with potential to expand to other N21 ingredients.
Separately, a Broker Agreement was also signed between the parties to enable Nutrition21 to represent Applied DNA’s CertainT platform throughout its extensive network in the dietary supplement market.
In the highly competitive dietary supplement industry, Nutrition21 takes brand and intellectual property protection seriously as an industry role model with a significant focus on consumer education and quality.
The CertainT “Tag-Test-Track” platform enables companies and their supply chains to designate a unique molecular identity tag that has meaning specific to the tagged material: for example, geographic facility location, brand, product line or date of manufacture.
“Nutrition21 employs rigorous preclinical and clinical trials as a key part of its product development strategy to ensure product safety and consumer trust. The scientific evidence provided by Applied DNA’s CertainT platform will support these principles with verification of product compliance through the supply chain.”
Bill Levi, Vice President of Operations at Nutrition21
“The functional branded ingredient market follows our work in pharmaceuticals, where we believe transparency and trust are key tenets to drive consumer confidence. The CertainT platform provides Nutrition21 proof positive of their ingredients all the way through to their customers’ finished products and onto retail shelves and online stores. CertainT supports Nutrition21’s investment in brand and intellectual property protection for its ingredients and its customers’ final products.”
