What is HMS 90/Immunocal?
HMS 90/Immunocal is a patented, highly concentrated, whey protein isolate, which provides a good source of cysteine, an important cell nutrient. The critical role of cysteine in the body is well documented. Dietary sources of cysteine are limited and HMS 90/ Immunocal is the ideal cysteine delivery system.
HMS 90/Immunocal contains less than 1% fat and lactose, making it both suitable and desirable for all, even the most lactose-intolerant. This highly refined, premium quality protein powder is packaged in individually sealed foil pouches to ensure purity and freshness.
HMS 90/Immunocal is patent protected worldwide and is a renowned, superior nutritional product.
Who Discovered HMS 90/Immunocal?
It was the discovery by Gustavo Bounous, MD and his colleagues of the importance of a dietary protein source from whey concentrate that eventually led to the development of HMS 90/Immunocal.
Dr. Bounous, Immunotec’s Director of Research and Development, has had a distinguished academic career and has co-authored numerous articles in major professional journals worldwide.
After completing his studies at the University of Turin in Italy, Dr. Bounous was awarded the 1965 medal of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. In 1968, he was named Career Investigator of the Medical Research Council of Canada, a post he held for a period of 25 years. It was in 1978 that he initiated his studies on the discovery and development of a dietary protein source from whey concentrate; work that eventually led to the creation of HMS 90/Immunocal.
