The germ is the essence of plant seeds and is a key part of plant reproduction and production. However, most of the edible plant parts we usually buy have the germ removed. For example, staple foods such as wheat and rice.
As early as 2017, spermidine-rich wheat germ extract was recognized as a new food by the EU.
In March 2020, the EU issued Regulation(EU) No. 2020/443, amending the Annex of Implementation Regulation (EU) 2017/2470 regarding the content of new food spermidine-rich wheat germ extract. See the table below for details:
|New food name||Description|
|Spermidine-rich wheat germ extract||Definition：Spermidine-rich wheat germ extract is obtained from the non-fermented, non-germinated wheat germ (common wheat) by solid-liquid extraction method, which specifically targets polyamines, but is not limited to polyamines.|
The EU listed wheat spermidine as a new type of food in 2017 and our company researched and developed a polyamine of rice germ in 2018, with spermidine as the main ingredient. Due to the unstable supply of raw materials limited by rice germ, the product currently only exists in the laboratory stage and has not been mass-produced. However, the extraction technology and production methods of this type of spermidine-rich products have been equipped with the conditions for mass production in our company.
Scientific research has concluded that spermidine has an effect on autophagy. In this continuous self-cleaning process, old and redundant cellular components and harmful invaders such as viruses will be broken down and recycled. Since these decomposed substances can be used to build new structures, the system provides a high-efficiency mechanism for cell production and renewal.
Spermidine is produced naturally in the human body, by cells and bacteria in the gut microbiome. A diet rich in spermidine also helps to stimulate the autophagy function of cells.
Such products have a wide range of applications, ranging from baked goods, chocolate bars, biscuits, and pasta to liquid foods such as dairy beverages and milkshakes, with almost unlimited uses.
As the market recognizes and accepts the product, we will also speed up the mass production plan for the product.
Shaanxi You Technology Co., Ltd has always been a raw material production enterprise driven by technology, and its development of new products has never stopped.
