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.
