KYOWA HAKKO USA announces program to highlight ingredients

All amino acids are not created equal, and that's especially true of ingredients manufactured by Kyowa Hakko Bio Co. Ltd.

Kyowa has created the "Kyowa Quality™" mark to ensure its customers that its pure line of unbranded amino acids and related compounds are produced using the same sophisticated technologies and high-quality standards as the company's branded ingredients. Manufacturers choosing Kyowa's commodity products now have the option to co-brand with the Kyowa Quality seal to let consumers know the highest-quality ingredients were used.

"Through our proprietary, science-backed fermentation technologies, Kyowa offers an extensive line of high-quality amino acids that support healthy metabolic activity," said Karen Todd, Kyowa Hakko USA director of marketing. "Our customers can convey their dedication to pure, scientifically tested, ingredients by participating in the Kyowa Quality program."
