BIO-CAT Microbials Announces Allergen-Free Protocol for Probiotic

BIO-CAT Microbials is pleased to announce a new protocol in the manufacture of OPTI-BIOME® Bacillus subtilis MB40. This new process eliminates all materials from the fermentation currently listed on the FDA’s known allergen list including soy. “Removing materials like soy, a long standing common fermentation ingredient, from our process is a significant step forward in our ability to meet the demands of the consumer,” says Christopher Schuler, president of BIO-CAT Microbials. He adds that “customers and formulators will not see any difference in appearance, performance or physical characteristics with the new process.”

OPTI-BIOME® is a unique and innovative food grade probiotic that offers supplement manufacturers and food formulators a naturally stable, safe and effective probiotic. OPTI-BIOME® can be added to a variety of food systems and decrease overage in capsules. Clinically tested for safety and improvement in digestive health, this probiotic may reduce bloating and gas as well as improve quality of life parameters.
