Seattle Gummy Company (SGC) CEO, Dr. Connie Wan, presented the latest technology from SGC. Gummy Zero® products formulated with the proprietary Trulinose™ technology have attracted intense interests from investors and judges. Explaining Gummy Zero based drug pipeline, Dr. Connie Wan used Mocca Shots®, the highest caffeine loading product on the market, to showcase the flexibility and capability of SGC’s API-complexing technology. Noting that the caffeine in Mocca Shots™ works 5x faster because ingredients are absorbed through mouth mucosa, by-passing the normal digestive process, Dr. Connie Wan explains, “as a result, next to an IV, Mocca Shots are the fastest way to deliver caffeine directly into the blood stream.” Applying the same technology, SGC has finished formulating several OTC drug products. The company is expecting the approval of its first allergy gummy by the FDA next year.
After several rounds of judging and voting, SGC was awarded the second place as one of the most innovative companies in the competition. “We are very excited to be a SVIEF-STAR,” said Dr. Connie Wan, “beating out all those blockchain and AI companies means that nothing can overshadow an amazing technology like Gummy Zero, which, I believe, will have a fundamental impact on how people take and think of medicine.”
