12-02-2020

New organic line will include bioavailable BCM-95 (Curcugreen).

Arjuna Natural has introduced a range of certified organic turmeric extracts, including the bioavailable BCM-95 (Curcugreen). In addition to BCM-95 and Turmeric Extract 95%, the line of products will include Arjuna’s full range of water-dispersible, oil-dispersible, and customised turmeric extracts.

Organic certification is granted by the National Programme for Organic Production (NPOP) and National Organic Programme (NOP), as well as the organic standard equivalent with EC834/2007 and 889/2008 for the European Union (EU) certification.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the EU Regulation on organic production have further recognised India’s national standards for organic production as meeting the standard of the US NOP and EU regulations 2092/91.

Chase Johnston, director of the Dallas, Texas-based US operations for Arjuna Natural, commented: “The new organic certifications in Europe, US and India help maintain BCM-95’s position globally, but also establishes Arjuna as a trusted source for organic turmeric extracts. Now more than ever, consumers are educating themselves on natural products before purchasing. Arjuna is committed to transparent, sustainable and organic practices that align with consumer values.”

Dr Benny Anthony, managing director for Arjuna, added: “The organic turmeric is grown and cultivated on local, organic-certified farms. Moreover, the organic nature of the product is cross-verified through both an independent certifying agency as well as via appropriate chemical analysis.”  

The traceability of BCM-95 is a farm-to-shelf enterprise. Arjuna works with farmers to cultivate and harvest turmeric with the highest efficiency. The production process ensures the ingredient is clean and safe for use, with zero contamination, allowing Arjuna to ensure a “pure, clean, and safe” product with traceability through BCM-95’s supply chain.

Organic BCM-95 is available for all formulations and in forms of softgels, tablets, and foods and beverages.
