LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2016) -  Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) ("Plandaí" or "the Company"), producer of the highly bioavailable Phytofare® catechin complex, today announced that leading nutraceutical brand, Grenade®, is launching a new product, Grenade® Thermo Detonator Stim Free, that incorporates Phytofare® as a key active ingredient. The new cutting edge stimulant-free formula uses a patented dual-release technology to aid those on a diet and exercise plan. The inner capsule of the Detonator is comprised of Phytofare® combined with a dihydrocapsiate compound naturally found in CH-19 Sweet peppers. The product is designed to yield benefits in exercise, weight management, endurance, and metabolism. The first shipment of Phytofare® was delivered to Grenade in February 2016 with product expected to be available to consumers later in March.

Callum Cottrell-Duffield, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Plandaí Biotechnology, stated, "The Grenade® Thermo Detonator product combines the known benefits of Phytofare® catechins with a powerful capsasin. The synergy of the two should provide a significant thermogenesis effect, which is a critical component of weight loss. Following an initial release in Europe, Grenade® expects to commence shipping the Thermo Detonator product to the United States where they already have established distribution in major retailers."
