dicentra Client, ChromaDex, Awarded Nutritional Outlook’s 2019 Best of the Industry Awards, Ingredient Supplier Award

February 26, 2020 By

dicentra, a leading contract research organization (CRO) and global consulting firm for the life sciences and food industries, is pleased to announce that its client ChromaDex, has been awarded Nutritional Outlook’s 2019 Best of the Industry Awards, Ingredient Supplier Award.

“We congratulate ChromaDex on this achievement. We’re honoured to work with innovative and cutting-edge companies that are improving the natural health product industry,” said Alicja Wojewnik, CEO, dicentra.

dicentra aided in obtaining product licence authorizations by Health Canada enabling ChromaDex to gain market access for their supplement, TRU NIAGEN®. In this endeavor, dicentra assisted with the substantiation of new health claims relating to the effect of TRU NIAGEN® on increasing blood NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) levels which was a key-finding in human studies. In particular, “clinically proven” claims were successfully obtained for TRU NIAGEN®, with dicentra acting as a liaison with Health Canada, alongside ChromaDex’s scientific experts.

dicentra’s predominant role was to demonstrate that the proposed health claims met Health Canada’s evidence requirements and were backed by rigorous clinical research and sound science. ChromaDex is one of two companies in Canada currently marketing NIAGEN®, also known as nicotinamide riboside, a member of the vitamin B3 family, which in January 2020 the European Commission listed as an authorized novel food ingredient.

“The dicentra team was very helpful in obtaining the necessary regulatory reviews and approvals required to successfully launch Tru Niagen in Canada,” said ChromaDex CEO Rob Fried. “We appreciate the opportunity to help foster healthy ageing in Canada.”
