KEMEROVO, February 15 (Itar-Tass) – Siberia’s scientists and pharmacists developed innovative 100 percent assimilable organic syrups and nectars, the director of Siberian Health company, Vasily Voznyak, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
New organic syrups are produced through mixing herbs and berries at the molecular level, he said.
A unique technology of mechanical and chemical activation is used in the production of syrups that look quite ordinary for customers. This is a new processing method in the production of functional foods and future medicines, the company said.
The technology developed jointly with Institute of Solid State Chemistry and Mechanochemistry (Novosibirsk) received a patent and was for the first time applied in the production of syrups.
“The essence of the technology is that two, three or more dried substances are mixed under full absence of liquid phases. This mixture occurs at the molecular level, which makes it possible to get new properties of products that are being created and to improve their assimilability to 100 percent,” Voznyak said.
Assimilability of syrups created in a commonly used technological process makes up 20-30 percent on the average. As a result, a person should increase doses to get desired effects, which irritates a human organism. This new technology makes syrups and nectars fully digestible, which directly influences their assimilability.
For instance, shelf fungus syrup is widely used for prevention of acute respiratory and viral infections. When it is mixed with water, it leaves sediments. The syrup is only partially digested, while things turn quite different with this new technology.
“All components used in mixtures are organic, therefore there are absolutely environmentally and human friendly,” Voznyak said.
In the future Siberian Health and Institute of Solid State Chemistry and Mechanochemistry plan to use this technology for the production of medicines.
Siberian Health shareholders are Kemerovo Pharmaceutical Factory established in 1943, the Kuzbass technopark and Biokompozit company.
