CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - September 08, 2016) - Probiotics have become a top trend in functional foods and beverages, thanks to GanedenBC30®, Ganeden's safe and stable strain that can be formulated into almost any product. The high demand for probiotic items has been recognized at many industry events in 2016, and continues to be a driving force with companies attending Natural Products Expo East.
More than 20 of Ganeden's partners will be exhibiting at the show, each with lines of probiotic products ranging from snack foods and deserts to waters and juices. The spore-forming composition of the GanedenBC30 strain allows it to survive most manufacturing processes, shelf life, stomach acids and intestinal bile, opening up opportunities for manufactures to formulate it into everyday foods and beverages, including products from the following companies:
"The term probiotic used to be uncommon, but today over 70 percent of the population knows what it means and associates it with good health," said Mike Bush, President of Ganeden and Executive Board President of the International Probiotics Association (IPA). "Based on that awareness, consumers are spending more than $30 billion each year on probiotic products, and thanks to the efficacy and safety of GanedenBC30 that number continues to rise."
The expo exhibits come on the heels of Ganeden's announcement regarding its 24th peer reviewed and published study on protein utilization and muscle recovery -- making it the first probiotic strain with the ability to substantiate protein claims.
