advisory board and helped the company achieve GRAS status or "Generally
Regarded As Safe" designation for theobromine, which the FDA's highest
standard for food safety additives.

product lines," said Dr. Tetsuo Nakamoto, CSO for Theodent™.

the company's website, and in select Whole Foods Markets nationwide.
