Safe & Natural Nanotechnology

Regulatory Compliance

Mirexus’ Phytoglycogen Nanoparticle is not classified as a nanomaterial by regulatory and certification bodies because it is:

  • Water soluble (individual molecules remain in solution indefinitely)
  • Not biopersistant – the material is quickly and easily degraded to simple sugars in the environment and in the body
  • Not intentionally manufactured – it is simply extracted from corn in the same state as it is found in nature
