How is BC30 Unique?

The challenge with formulating probiotic foods and beverages is that many strains on the market are vegetative strains, which are more fragile and require refrigeration. BC30 is a well-researched, spore-forming probiotic. With a naturally-protective outer layer, BC30 can survive most processing conditions and the path to the gut allowing it to provide the benefits your consumers want.

Probiotic Difference

Understanding the difference between probiotic types is the first step in identifying an ingredient that can fit a product’s formulation and benefit needs. Product manufacturers looking to formulate a shelf-stable, heat-resistant product, should opt for spore-forming probiotics.

Spore-Forming vs. Vegetative Probiotics

Simply put, spore-forming probiotics survive better in food and beverage products. What are the differences?
