and technology, combined with continuous investment in research.
maximize customer satisfaction by considering the characteristics of modern lifestyle, and leading the
domestic health functional food market. Furthermore, our &D department focuses on creating
customer-oriented value and researching health functional food that is appropriate to the globalization era.
It also aims to become “the best healthcare research institute in Korea” based on cutting-edge science
and technology, along with excellent researchers.
Development of Functional food
Health functional food refers to products made from functional ingredients that have been
approved by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety by evaluating scientific evidence such as
animal tests and human body application tests.
The notified ingredients can be used by anyone as the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety notifies the standards
and specifications of “Health Functional Food Code “. The separately approved ingredients mean the ingredients
that have been approved by the MFDS separately after conducting evaluation.
functional ingredients by studying the physical properties and efficacy of the ingredients. The development team is
developing various types of formulation and conducting standardization study to commercialize these ingredients.
Natural product research
Plants, animals and minerals in different environments have unique characteristics.
These characteristics can have significant effects on the human body. We are studying the functions of these “bioactive substance” and verifying their efficacy. The efficacy studies are done in the form of cell, animal, and human body studies and they are carried out in cooperation with related organizations to confirm their efficacy in a cross-sectional manner.
Safety research on functional ingredients is commissioned and evaluated by the GLP organization. We have developed improved ingredients based on the contents of the research.
We have developed health functional foods and foods that can be eaten easily and deliciously by researching formulations including tablets, hard and soft capsules, granules, powder, and beverages.
We have carried out research to replace synthetic food additives with natural raw materials. We also strive to provide safe food to consumers by confirming the stability of the prototype products.
Development of Test Methods
We have conducted standardization of products through the development of standards and test methods.
We have performed research that involves checking the changes in the products in a constant temperature and humidity environment to determine the shelf life of the product.
