Global leader will discuss probiotic formulation trends, science updates and product launches
CLEVELAND, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — As probiotic fortification continues to gain momentum around the world, probiotic leader Ganeden is expanding its presence at additional food and beverage events globally—including in Asia. This September, experts from the top probiotic ingredient supplier will be attending Food Ingredients Asia (Fi Asia) in Bangkok. Team members based locally and from the U.S. headquarters will be on site to discuss new probiotic research, offer insight into upcoming product launches and help manufacturers explore innovative probiotic formulations beyond traditional dairy applications.
Ganeden has become a driving force in the probiotic space internationally, helping hundreds of manufacturers use probiotic technology in their products in innovative ways—including many in Asia. As a global leader, the science-driven company is knowledgeable on probiotic trends around the world, including consumer demand, research advancements and innovative options for probiotic fortification beyond the dairy case. Experts can assist in probiotic ingredient selection, including providing details on strain specificity, study requirements and health benefits.
“There are tremendous growth opportunities for probiotic technologies in the Asian market, and Fi Asia gives us a chance to provide expertise on how health benefits can be added to products to drive consumer interest and purchases,” said Stephen Quinn, business and regulatory director for Asia at Ganeden. “We plan to meet with industry leaders and innovators to demonstrate how functional ingredients can benefit end-users and grow business. There is a strong tradition of probiotics in Asia, but nearly all of it is in the supplement and dairy categories, so having a chance to provide the same health benefits in other food and beverage applications is exciting for manufacturers and their customers.”
Ganeden is best known for GanedenBC30® (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), its patented and shelf stable probiotic ingredient that remains viable through most manufacturing processes, shelf life and gastric transit—allowing it to be fortified into almost any food or beverage product. Years of ongoing studies confirm the strain’s safety, digestive and immune support, and protein utilization benefits. And because GanedenBC30 has been shown to survive 10X more effectively than yogurt cultures, it has become one of the top ingredient choices for probiotic benefits in both refrigerated and non-refrigerated products.
During the show, Ganeden will also introduce the newest addition to its ingredient portfolio—Staimune™. The new ingredient uses the inactivated cells of GanedenBC30, which have been shown to support immune health. Staimune’s ease of formulation opens up new opportunities in immune-focused, functional foods and beverages which involve processes too harsh for live probiotics.
