We practice the most modern evidence based scientific research approach to transform the kitchen spices to Spiceuticals®. Last several years of systematic research using modern state-of-the-art analytical techniques, green extraction methodologies & novel formulations made us successful to unlock the nutritional secrets of some kitchen spices to generate a set of novel nutraceutical ingredients backed by preclinical/clinical evaluations.
Our technology helps aqueous and/or hydro-ethanolic extracts to concentrate at low temperature (< 40°C) to keep the integrity of the phytonutrients. The phytonutrient extract powders with high flow index and customized particle size are also made fully water soluble beverage grades (NutriSPICETM) without using any synthetic emulsifiers (patent pending).
Our unique patented technology platform, FENUMATTM, employing the natural hydrocolloid prebiotics ensure the realization of our concept of ‘Green Approach for Micronutrient Delivery’ - a water based process for the impregnation and encapsulation of plant bioactives / vitamins / minerals / amino acids etc to a stable, soluble form for better absorption and enhanced bioavailability.Our well-equipped QA/QC with UPLC/MS/MS, HPLC, GC and microbiology division tests each lots for food safety parameters comprising the active principle, pesticides, aflatoxins, illegal dyes, residual solvents, heavy metals etc.
Spiceuticals have one US patent for a bioavailable formulation of curcumin (CurQfen®) and has filed 4 more US patent applications and 4 Indian patent applications. Already published 5 peer-review articles and other 5 are communicated. Yet another five manuscripts are under preparation. Formulation, Preclinical (animal) and clinical studies forms the basis of each paper.
