“As a leading supplier of bovine colostrum in the world, we are thrilled to be the exclusive supplier of bovine colostrum to Sunplus, and to work with Sunplus to promote education and product innovation of bovine colostrum in China,” said Wes Parris, president and CEO of PanTheryx. “Sunplus is a trusted brand of bovine colostrum, focusing on improving the health of children and adults in China. APS’ strength as a global nutritional ingredient manufacturer combined with Sunplus’s leadership in downstream retail create a best-in-class supply chain. We believe that through this strategic collaboration, we can provide Chinese consumers with a better understanding of bovine colostrum so they can experience the benefits of this comprehensive digestive and immune health product.”
Colostrum Basic Protein (CBP)
Colostrum Basic Protein (CBP) is the small molecule fraction isolated from bovine colostrum through ultra-filtration. It contains key growth factors and compounds that assist in bone cell proliferation and metabolism, which contribute to bone maturation and mineralization to support skeletal growth and strength.
In 2021, the Sunplus brand Natrapure and the School of Food Science and Engineering of South China University of Technology carried out an in-depth cooperation on CBP. This program verified the significant improvement on bone formation and strengthening of bone density and length by promoting efficient calcium absorption by the body. It is especially suitable for growing children, women experiencing menopause, and older adults.
"Sunplus is dedicated to studying the essence of bovine colostrum nutrition and is looking forward to the simultaneous launch of our new Natrapure product in China and our collaboration with APS,” commented Jian Lun, CEO of Sunplus. “Through the launch of the Natrapure CBPS product, we will build on and expand bovine colostrum’s well studied health benefits for consumers.”
APS and Sunplus, as the world's leading bovine colostrum research and development and application enterprises, will continue to strengthen the education of bovine colostrum, so Chinese consumers can establish a newer and more comprehensive understanding of bovine colostrum.
