KOLMAR BNH: FUNCTIONAL FOOD HEMOHIM DRUMS UP GLOBAL ENTHUSIASM

KUALA LUMPUR, April 22 (Bernama) -- Hemohim developed via an eight-year collaboration between Kolmar BNH and the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, is garnering remarkable popularity in the global market as one of Korea’s leading functional foods to boost the immune system.

According to a statement, Hemohim was extracted from raw materials of angelica gigas, cnidium officinale, and paeonia japonica, which have been traditionally used in herbal medicine.

Kolmar BNH performed tests on humans to confirm the safety and efficacy of its main ingredient and was recognised by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety of Korea in 2006 for its immune-boosting properties.

Distributed by Atomy, a customer of Kolmar BNH, Hemohim has sold over two trillion Korean won worth of products in just 17 years since its launch, making it the nation’s best-selling individually approved health functional food. (1,000 Korean won = RM3.46)

“Hemohim represents Korea's top health functional food, backed by research capabilities and manufacturing prowess. After its success in Korea over the past 16 years, Hemohim is ready to leave its footprint on the global market,” said a Kolmar BNH official.

With strong demand from countries such as Australia, the United States, and Thailand, Hemohim has expanded its global presence to over 20 countries.

Following a rigorous review process, Hemohim has received approval from the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety as the nation’s first individually approved health supplement product designed to enhance immune function.

Ranking the second-highest exported product after red ginseng in Korea, Hemohim is the leading individually approved health functional food ingredient.

Kolmar BNH is making research and development efforts to sharpen its material competitiveness, as evidenced by the 'Hemohim Sustaining Technology Development Project'.

After six years of endeavours, it obtained a fatigue recovery function last year, solidifying Hemohim's status as a dual-functional food with immune enhancement and fatigue recovery.
