Ajinomoto Co., Inc. obtient l'autorisation de mise sur le marché en Europe du dihydrocapsiate, un nouvel ingrédient alimentaire, marquant ainsi une avancée majeure en matière de sensation gustative et de dépenses énergétiques

TOKYO, 3 décembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ajinomoto Co., Inc. (Ajinomoto Co.) annonce aujourd'hui que la Commission européenne vient de publier la décision d'exécution autorisant la mise sur le marché du dihydrocapsiate (DHC) en tant que nouvel ingrédient alimentaire en application du règlement (CE) no 258/97 du Parlement européen et du Conseil (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2012:327:0049:0051:EN:PDF).

« Grâce aux caractéristiques totalement nouvelles du DHC et à l'avantage que constitue un accroissement sûr des dépenses énergétiques, nos clients du secteur agroalimentaire européen vont pouvoir innover en trouvant à cette substance des applications totalement nouvelles et intéressantes pour le consommateur », a indiqué Shoji Tsubuku, directeur général d'Ajinomoto Co., Inc.

En mars 2009, le dihydrocapsiate a été certifié GRAS par la FDA américaine en tant qu'ingrédient alimentaire, mais l'autorisation européenne de mise sur le marché n'en demeure pas moins importante car elle va favoriser l'utilisation internationale de cet ingrédient dans un éventail beaucoup plus large de produits alimentaires partout en Europe.

À propos du dihydrocapsiate
Naturellement présent dans les piments, le dihydrocapsiate appartient à la famille des composés capsinoïdes Il est similaire par sa structure à la capsaïcine, une substance qui confère son caractère piquant aux piments et dont la capacité à augmenter le métabolisme et les dépenses énergétiques est reconnue de longue date. À l'instar de la capsaïcine, les capsinoïdes sont des substances naturelles qui activent les récepteurs du corps et peuvent avoir un impact favorable sur les dépenses énergétiques mais qui n'ont pas un goût épicé. Ajinomoto Co., Inc. a mené sur l'homme et l'animal un vaste programme d'études expérimentales sur les capsinoïdes, et l'innocuité du dihydrocapsiate a été confirmée par un avis positif rendu en juillet dernier par l'Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments.

À propos des nouveaux aliments
Un nouvel aliment est un aliment ou un ingrédient alimentaire dont la consommation est restée négligeable au sein de l'Union européenne jusqu'au 15 mai 1997. Tout aliment ou ingrédient alimentaire relevant de cette définition doit faire l'objet d'une autorisation de mise sur le marché conformément à la législation relative aux nouveaux aliments, règlement (CE) no 258/97.

À propos de la certification GRAS
La procédure GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe - Généralement reconnu comme sans risques) est une procédure de reconnaissance mise en place par la FDA en 1958. Les substances utilisées dans les produits alimentaires font l'objet d'études objectives par des spécialistes, chercheurs universitaires, qui déterminent si elles peuvent être considérées comme généralement sans risques dans les applications pour lesquelles elles sont prévues. Aux États-Unis, les nouveaux ingrédients destinés à être utilisés dans des produits alimentaires (à l'exclusion des ingrédients alimentaires destinés aux complémentaires alimentaires) doivent soit être approuvés en tant qu'additifs alimentaires, soit avoir été certifiés GRAS.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT.
