CoQ10 Powder Offers Formulation Flexibility

KanekaQ10 EP40AN is an all-natural, emulsified powder that is non-GMO and composed entirely of food-grade materials (therefore, it has GRAS status). The ingredient is water-based, so it can be used to produce a wide range of products, including drinkable jelly and energy bars.

EP40AN contains 40% CoQ10, a level much higher than that of other emulsified powders, according to Kaneka. The composition also includes 19.5% lecithin (including enzyme-modified lecithin), 24.3% maltodextrin and 16.2% sodium alginate.

About CoQ10

KanekaQ10 is natural Coenzyme Q10, manufactured by yeast fermentation. This process produces a form of CoQ10 identical to that made naturally by the human body.

CoQ10 is a powerful, fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance found naturally in all forms of animal life. It is vital in the production of energy, and is found in most cells, especially in the heart. In its pure form, CoQ10 is a yellow-orange, tasteless, crystalline powder.
