BioNeutra - 2017 Finalist for ASTech Awards for Science and Technology
By 2019, Stats Canada predicts that more Canadian adults will be overweight than normal weight. That represents 14 million people and a healthcare problem that is only going to get worse, according to Dr. Jianhua Zhu, President and CEO of BioNeutra North America Inc.
With the marketplace needing an alternative to sugar, Edmonton-based BioNeutra took a unique approach to trying to help solve this global healthcare problem by not only providing a low calorie, natural sweetener, but also one that has some health benefits too. “We’re a science-based company which sets us apart from some of our competitors,” says Zhu.
More than just a sweetener!
The finalists for the 2017 ASTech Awards have been announced. The ASTech's showcases the highest-achievers working in science and technology in Alberta. The Awards celebration is November 3, 2017 at TELUS Spark in Calgary.
