April 7, 2008
Coca-Cola Co.’s Fuze Slenderize Beverages, containing two of Benicia, Calif.-based InterHealth Nutraceuticals weight-management ingredients, Super CitriMax and ChromeMate, will be appearing in high school vending machines across the country. Public schools and processors have been under increased pressure to upgrade the nutrition profile of vending machine offerings. InterHealth Nutraceuticals researches, develops, markets and distributes specialty nutritional ingredients. CitriMax is an all-natural ingredient containing hydroxycitric acid, an extract from the South Asian fruit Garcinia cambogia bound to the essential minerals calcium and potassium. According to InterHealth, Super CitriMax helps maintain healthy weight by suppressing appetite and increasing satiety, while inhibiting fat production without stimulating the nervous system or heart rate.
