  • Who is Annie Eng?

    While growing up in Malaysia, a country that contains one of the densest rainforest in the world, Annie Eng was always intrigued by the rich plant botanicals, especially a root called Tongkat Ali. She was amazed when she read newspaper articles describing how Tongkat Ali helped older men achieve youthfulness, from increasing energy, to enhancing immune health, to enhancing sexual function. Tongkat Ali grows wild in the deepest rainforest and the Orang Asli (the Malaysian aboriginal people) are the only ones who know how to find them. At that time, there was not enough research and science behind Tongkat Ali and it was viewed as a mystical folk remedy.


    In 2001, Ms. Eng started to investigate Tongkat Ali again and found that the Malaysian government and MIT had collaborated on research about this indigenous root and had filed a worldwide patent on the botanical. Ms. Eng contacted the scientists involved in the research, struck an exclusive distribution agreement for the North American market, trademarked the proprietary, patented extract as LJ100® and founded HP Ingredients in 2002 to introduce LJ100® to the North America market.


    Ms. Eng is actively scouting unique, well-research nutraceutical ingredients from around the world. She travels the globe to work with various groups of scientists and has helped develop several patented and trademarked nutraceuticals such as ParActin®, Bergamonte®, Gevuina Oil and Maqui Berry®. Between 2013 and 2014, Ms Eng launched four additional trademarked ingredients.


    Ms. Eng leads HP Ingredients’ custom formulations and private labeling service to manufacturers. HPI’s innovation in formulations is accomplished by combining its trademarked ingredients with other clinically tested, well-researched nutraceuticals. She has helped formulate several blockbuster finished products for various manufacturers in categories including men’s health, sport nutrition, energy drinks, antioxidant liquid supplements, joint health, heart health and weight loss products.


    Ms. Eng graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in accounting and finance. She started the first 10 years of her career at Gruntal & Co. as vice president in investment and financial consultant. While at Gruntal, Ms. Eng was the youngest producer, was consistently a top 10 producer and was the number-one new accounts opener in the Chicago branch office.


    Ms. Eng is an accomplished business executive with successful leadership experience in the nutraceutical industry. She is the president and founder of HP Ingredients and InnoBioscience, and is actively involved in formulations, private label and commercialization of research-backed, patented, and trademarked nutraceuticals.
