A nutritional ingredient manufacturer, Kemin is committed to improving the nutrition of the world with functional products that deliver maximum efficacy through superior chemistry. Kemin Health was formed in 1995 and develops ingredients that meet nutritional needs and promote better health.
Kemin Health produces FloraGLO® Lutein, the patented, purified form of free lutein used as an ingredient in hundreds of multivitamins, eye formulas, supplements, personal care products, foods and beverages throughout the world.
Numerous peer-reviewed studies link the important eye-health benefits of the natural antioxidant lutein with reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataract extraction. Newer science also has suggested lutein may promote healthy skin. Sourced from marigold flowers and purified from marigold flower oleoresin, FloraGLO Lutein is the world's leading patented, purified lutein. Products with FloraGLO Lutein contain the same lutein naturally found in spinach, kale and other green leafy vegetables, as well as eggs.
More recently, Kemin Health introduced Slendesta® Potato Extract, a natural, safe and effective satiety ingredient for use in dietary supplements. With its active component, Proteinase Inhibitor II (PI2), Slendesta is supported by science, including 11 clinical studies, demonstrating the effects of PI2 on satiety and weight loss. Slendesta helps dieters feel satisfied sooner and longer, thereby managing hunger, reducing calorie intake through smaller portions and controlling snacking.
