Our Research Board
Udo received his Bachelor of Science degree in Honours Zoology with a major in Psychology from the University of British Columbia, followed by graduate studies in biochemistry and genetics.
In 1980, his life took a significant turn when he was poisoned by pesticides. When conventional medicine was unable to provide help, he concluded that his health was his own responsibility and turned his attention to nutrition. Several years of research culminated in his Canadian best-selling book, Fats that Heal Fats that Kill, which earned him a Ph.D. in nutrition.
In 1983, he began to pioneer technology for pressing and packaging edible, fresh oils made with health in mind, by excluding three main factors that can transform nutritious oils into toxic ones – light, heat and oxygen. Until that time, oils were highly processed by destructive methods, sacrificing health benefits in order to attain longer shelf life.
Over the past two decades, Udo has appeared on nationally syndicated radio and television shows and has given thousands of media interviews and seminars, educating audiences across the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia on the essential components of good health.
He has recently published a guide entitled Choosing the Right Fats, and continues to research nutrition and health for his next book. Udo also maintains an educational website at www.udoerasmus.com.
As a result of Udo’s efforts, there are high quality, unrefined flax oils and other important seed oils found in refrigerators in health food stores and in health-minded practitioners’ dispensaries around the world. Udo’s contribution to the fields of health and nutrition, along with his pioneering work to establish standards of quality for oil manufacture will continue to benefit humanity for decades to come.
Anthony L. Almada has worked within the natural products industry since 1975. He performed his undergraduate training in physiology and nutritional biochemistry at UC Irvine and CSU Long Beach. He performed his graduate research at Berkeley in antioxidant and exercise biochemistry.
In 1992 he co-founded EAS, the world’s largest sports nutrition company, acquired by Abbott Labs/Ross in 2004. At EAS he developed a university research program that completed over 15 clinical studies in the first 3 years of the company’s history, and yielded 2 patents.
He then co-founded a medical food company focused on the prevention of HIV-associated wasting. He has collaborated on over 80 university and private research center clinical trials, ranging from AIDS/HIV to weight loss.
He is the founder of IMAGINutrition, Inc., a think tank focusing upon intellectual properties, clinical research validation, and science-driven media campaigns in the dietary supplement, cosmeceutical, and functional beverage and food sectors.
He is the founding partner of Mercura, LLC, an innovation and maturation company focused on the transfer of “ready to sell” oral and topical consumer product innovations to strategic, best-of-class marketers. He is a founding partner of LevInova, Inc., marketers of Zsweet™, a patent pending all natural, zero calorie, zero glycemic bulk sweetener.
He is the CEO of Evidenscia, Inc., a consumer products marketer that in-licenses evidence-based, composition-specific natural bioactives and launches them through direct response marketing vehicles (television and radio). He will be taking the patent bar in late 2006.
