Sime Darby Foods & Beverages Marketing (previously known as Sime Darby Bioganic) is a member of the Sime Darby Group, the world's biggest listed palm plantation company. Leveraging on more than 200 years of experience in plantations, Sime Darby Foods & Beverages Marketing has embarked on the nutraceuticals industry.
The diversification to the nutraceuticals industry has proven to be a good decision for Sime Darby Foods & Beverages Marketing. The company is now capable of manufacturing high purity tocotrienols derived from palm fruit extract, marketed under the brand name of "Gold Tri.E™ Tocotrienols".
Tocotrienols have all the properties to be considered as the new generation of potent anti-oxidant. Research suggests that Tocotrienols could also be highly beneficial in the prevention and treatment of cardio-vascular conditions, cancer, skin related conditions, many other degenerative and ageing related diseases.
Gold Tri. E™ Tocotrienols are extracted from Elaeis guineensis (palm fruit) by using a special patented process, under license, from the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB). The extraction plant has the start-of-the art technology and has the capacity to produce superior purity tocotrienols. The chain of quality control activities are well-maintained and traceable: from the "fields" or the "farm"(at the planting stage), to the harvest and right to the extraction and concentration stages. The company also embraces sustainable business practices.
Tocotrienols are 40 to 60 times more potent as an anti-oxidant, compared to tocopherol, the regular type of VITAMIN E which can be found in some nuts, cereal grains and seeds, leafy green vegetables, avocados, fortified foods etc. Many recent clinical studies have shown that tocotrienols would be more beneficial for health maintenance.
Sime Darby Foods & Beverages Marketing is very optimistic in this business and is committed to revolutionizing the nutraceuticals industry though traceable, non GMO, HALAL, and KOSHER certified products from sustainable sources. Gold Tri.E™ Tocotrienols are just the beginning for Sime Darby Foods & Beverages Marketing in the journey of harnessing its full business potential.
