Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (Free Analysis), a multifaceted biotechnology company that is developing, producing, commercializing, and licensing an entirely new generation of plant-derived, bioactive ingredients, nutrient-dense foods, and related products, recently announced that it has provided The Cocos Pure Beverage Corp. with a custom formulated HempOmega® emulsion for an omega-infused coconut water.
“Developing new products with Cocos Pure further demonstrates the range of market opportunity for HempOmega®,” said Naturally Splendid CEO Craig Goodwin in the press release announcing the collaboration. “And being a finalist in the prestigious NutraIngredients Awards has only added to the market potential of this omega ingredient. We will continue to develop commercial opportunities for HempOmega® in a wide range of applications.”
Cocos Pure is a privately-held Vancouver-based company with an established retail line of organic and conventional coconut products targeting both foods and beverages.
HempOmega® is made from Canadian hemp seed oil that is micro encapsulated for incorporation into functional foods, beverages, dog foods, and cosmetics. It can be used as an emulsion or manufactured into a powder to be used as a plant based source of omega fatty acid. The custom-made emulsion was developed as POS Bio-Sciences and is undergoing taste trails with very positive initial feedback, according to Coco Pure CEO Tiffin Clark.
The two companies will co-develop a unique product line of coconut based retail products infused with HempOmega®, share the development costs, and equally split net revenues. POS Bio-Sciences – who developed the emulsion – is a bioprocessing applied research company with cGMP compliant facilities that adhere to international standards. The lab assists in all parts of the process from development to analytical services to custom processing.
Naturally Splendid is building an expanding portfolio of patents and intellectual property focused on the commercial uses of industrial hemp and non-psychoactive cannabinoid compounds in a broad spectrum of applications. Currently, the company has four divisions including a retail brand of superfood products, an e-commerce division focused on hemp, a bulk provider of hemp-based products, and a cannabinoid nutraceutical business.
