The Tamu Group, a Singapore based agri-processor and manufacturer of natural functional ingredients, has signed an agreement with Ultimate Performance Fitness (UP) to cooperate in reformulating their range of fibre supplements. This is in line with UP's continued quest to offer their client base a market leading service and premium range of supplements.
UP Global COO Joseph Halstead said: "We are excited about partnering with the Tamu Group to assist us in reformulating some of our existing fibre supplements and also create new premium fibre supplements around Five10FibreTM to ensure that we continue to offer our clients access to the best supplements with proven functionality and health benefits that the market has to offer."
Scientists at the University of Melbourne recently confirmed the presence of a significant quantity of polyphenolic compounds and flavonoids in Five10FibreTM. Polyphenols are responsible for a wide range of health benefits including reduced sugar uptake.
Dr Jonathan Middis, Chief Technical Officer at the Tamu Group, said: "We were always confident of the beneficial impact of cane fibre such as Five10FibreTM as part of a healthy diet. The Tamu Group's Five10FibreTM is a way for manufacturers to improve the nutritional quality of their products and to help consumers increase their natural fibre intake. We are excited to be working with UP to develop great new fibre supplements to help more of their clients benefit from sugar cane fibre."
