Mane announced that the U.S. Patent Office has recently confirmed the validity of all claims of its U.S. Patents Nos. 5,725,865 and 5,843,466 which cover the use of Monomenthyl Succinate (MMS) as a cooling additive in food and beverage products.  This confirmation rejects a petition for reexamination filed by International Flavors and Fragrances. 
MMS, which Mane has commercialized under the trademark Physcool, gives a sensory effect of perceived cooling during and after use in flavored products. It can be used in a wide range of product categories (e.g. drinks, gum, candy, toothpaste, cosmetics).
