Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, July 26, 2018 – DKSH Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading ingredients distributor and provider of Market Expansion Services, jointly hosted its regional Food and Nutrition Seminar with WACKER who officially introduced its latest CAVACURMIN® and HTEssence® ingredients to representatives of the nutrition food and nutraceutical industries, as well as public opinion leaders, in Malaysia.

 

This was the first joint event in Malaysia with WACKER, focusing on health and nutritional issues that are becoming increasingly relevant in Asia. Key speakers included:

  • Dr. Kalpana Bhaskaran, Vice President, Diabetic Society of Singapore; Head, Glycemic Index Research Unit at the Temasek Polytechnic in Singapore; Public Relations & Media Committee Chair of the Singapore Nutrition & Dietetics Association; Domain Lead, Applied Nutrition & Glycemic Index Research at Temasek Polytechnic Singapore

The key speakers engaged participants in discussions on ingredients that are used for weight management, taste masking, diabetes management/low glycemic index purposes, cholesterol management as well as in skin-lightening applications. Approximately 50 industry representatives and public opinion leaders attended the event.

 

“Thanks to WACKER’s patented multistage synthesis method, a cost-effective process for manufacturing a highly purified form of the natural identical hydroxytyrosol – marketed under the name HTEssence® –is now available in the market. It revolutionizes the way this antioxidant is being produced and supplied to manufacturers of nutritional supplements and skincare cosmetics,” explained Dr. TiehKoun Koh. “We are also very pleased to have Dr. Kalpana Bhaskaran, one of the most distinguished experts in Glycemic Index Research, as a key seminar speaker.
