Lonza L-Carnitine is not from animal sources

Last updated on 03-Aug-2011 at 15:40 GMT2011-08-03T15:40:45Z

Yesterday’s article Carnitine transporter may adapt to lower levels in vegetarians: Study incorrectly stated that Lonza’s L-Carnitine ingredient Carnipure is derived from animal sources. In fact, it is vegetarian.

Dr Kevin Owen, Nafta head of technical marketing and scientific affairs at Lonza, said: “Although L-Carnitine is naturally present in meat products, Lonza’s Carnipure is not derived from animal sources and is synthesized by a patented multi-step biological production process.”
