Although millions of consumers use glucosamine as a dietary supplement to promote joint health, the fact that it is currently derived from shellfish complicates matters for those allergic to shellfish.

Cargill announces production of a new, corn-based, shellfish-free glucosamine, REGENASURE™. Kosher-approved, the product is the only American-produced glucosamine on the market. With the aging of the population and the increasing interest in supplements for health, REGENASURE™ is a natural fit for Cargill's other offerings, including AdvantaSoy™ isoflavones and Oliggo-Fiber™ inulin, designed to improve bone health and boost calcium absorption, respectively.
