For Immediate Release

Commack, NY (September 16, 2016) – Gemini Pharmaceuticals, a 30 year old contract manufacturer of dietary supplements and OTC pharmaceuticals, was the first contract manufacturer to gain certification under the new RIBUS® Certified Contract Manufacturer Program. Gemini, over the course of the past 4 years, has demonstrated the viability of utilizing RIBUS rice-based alternatives, Nu-FLOW® and Nu-RICE®, to provide Clean Label dietary supplement formulas. Gemini is now proud to include the latest Ribus material, Nu-MAG, in its ever expanding portfolio of options for Clean Label products.

The RIBUS rice based materials, Nu-FLOW and Nu-RICE, enabled supplement companies to comply with the organic regulatory changes to remove silicon dioxide by the November 2014 deadline. Now, RIBUS has continued to advance its technology platform with the introduction of Nu-MAG™, making Magnesium Stearate replacement easier than ever before.

Michael Finamore, CEO of Gemini Pharmaceuticals, Inc. states, “Our familiarity with the RIBUS family of ingredients has offered Gemini the opportunity to design and to manufacture nutritional products for our accounts by eliminating traditional inactive ingredients without sacrificing the quality or efficacy of the formulations. We’re excited to be able to expand our capabilities once again with the availability of Nu-MAG™, making Gemini and even more effective partner for our valued customers”, he added.

“Not only was Gemini the first RIBUS CCM, they have distinguished themselves as a primary advocate and innovator of nutritional products incorporating RIBUS’ Nu-RICE® and Nu-FLOW ®, with over 500 products now utilizing those ingredients for both functional and nutritional benefits”, said Steve Peirce, President of RIBUS. “Gemini has continuously demonstrated their ability to stay ahead of the leading edge of ingredient trends, while positioning themselves as experienced and able partners who can offer clients a demonstrated knowledge and expertise in commercially producing tablets and capsules using Nu- FLOW®, Nu-RICE®, and now Nu-MAG™, our Magnesium Stearate replacer,” according to Peirce.
