P.L. Thomas now represents Ganeden Biotech’s probiotic ingredient system GanedenBC30, ideal for food and beverage manufacturing. GanedenBC30 is a kosher-certified, patented Bacillus coagulans probiotic, self-affirmed GRAS, with many healthful benefits and applications. The ingredient is shielded by a natural organic layer which protects the probiotics cells, not only from extreme manufacturing processes but from acids in the stomach, too. This protection allows the cells to remain viable through the intestine, multiply and produce results. It maintains viable cells after surviving harsh manufacturing processes such as high pressure, high heat and cold. It also has a long shelf life, low use level and does not need to be refrigerated.
