The latest issue of Science has a new cover story that explores the “bionic” food coloring used to make vitamin A foods and products, which is being tested in clinical trials.
The article explains that, while the technology is still very early in development, the potential is huge: The color could be used in products like skin creams, toothpaste and more, as well as food coloring, cosmetics and even the skin.
It’s been in development for about 15 years, and it’s currently in Phase 2 trials in the United States and the European Union, the article says.
It also notes that there are no regulatory hurdles, which means companies can start using the coloring within months of its commercialization.
“It’s a really exciting time to be working on the technology,” says J. Alex Halderman, CEO of Alkahest, which makes vitamin A supplements and supplements for children.
“The fact that the technology was so early and so promising was really amazing.
I think it will be an enormous asset in the future.”
The technology works by attaching tiny wires to the surface of the food.
This creates an electrical current that travels through the food to produce a special chemical called alpha-tocopherol.
These molecules are present on the surface in every single cell in our bodies, so the researchers have already tested it in animal models.
They say the technology has the potential to be used for a wide range of products, including coloring, hair dye, lipstick and body washes.
The technology was first tested on a small number of people at the company’s research center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
They say the company is working to make it easier for people to get their hands on the products.
The company is also looking into using the technology in other ways, including making the coloring in the food itself, as opposed to attaching it to a product, as in the case of the toothpaste.
