VITAGOS Technical Sheet

VITAGOS™ Osmolarity The osmolarity of VITAGOS™ is slightly higher than sucrose. The average osmolarity of 10% VITAGOS™ is 360.4 (mOsm) whereas 349 (mOsm) for 10% sucrose. The osmolarity is an important safety and quality measurement for sport nutrition and infant formula development. Sport and isotonic drinks usually have a pH value of 3-4. These beverages are generally formulated with sugar. Sugar is not stable at low pH and can be hydrolyzed at low pH therefore the number of osmoactive particles will increase. These osmoactive particles produced by hydrolyze; make the sport drink imbalance resulting in lower rehydration functionality (2). Protein Allergens VITAGOS™ is manufactured on a production line that processes only milk products. No other potentially allergenic substances are used. For due diligence purposes, Vitalus Nutrition Inc. determined the amount of casein, a major milk allergen, in VITAGOS™ by SDS-PAGE. No casein was detected (Detection limit <2.6ppm).

VITAGOS™ Toxicology Study The safety of VITAGOS™was determined in a corroborative OECD compliant 90-day repeat dose rat toxicology study. The No-Observed-Adverse-Effect-Level (NOAEL) for VITAGOS™ following oral gavage is estimated to be 4082 mg/kg body weight/day.
