Probiotics in Alternative Milk Products
A glass of cow’s milk doesn’t tout the health halo it once did, and milk alternative consumption is on the rise. 2016 Mintel research revealed that half of Americans consume non-dairy milk, including 68 percent of parents and 54 percent of children under age 18.
One healthy strategy would be to add probiotics to your products. The global market of probiotic ingredients, supplements, and foods is expected to reach $64 billion by 2023, according to Global Market Insights Inc. And as the market and education on probiotics increases, consumer awareness continues to grow; currently about 76% of consumers know what probiotics are and associate them with a health benefit. The most attractive opportunities and rampant growth areas of this burgeoning market lie in the food and beverage products sector. Now, innovations in temperature-stable strains mean that probiotics are no longer relegated to the dairy case and supplements aisle.
Go With GanedenBC30
GanedenBC30 is a probiotic that can withstand the extreme manufacturing processes necessary for most foods – a real game changer for the category! How can a probiotic survive manufacturing? GanedenBC30’s unique structure safeguards the cell’s genetic material from the extreme temperature and pressures involved in the manufacturing process, along with the challenges it’s exposed to during digestive transit. It is a Gram-positive spore-forming bacterium that, once germinated, produces L+ lactic acid, which supports good bacteria in the gut while displacing the harmful bacteria. Simply adding appropriate levels of GanedenBC30 to your alternative milk formulation allows you to say that it supports digestive and immune health.
