Sabinsa’s Probiotic Receives GRAS Status

November 30, -0001

LactoSpore, a room-temperature stable probiotic (Bacillus coagulans) from Sabinsa, was affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by an independent scientific panel assembled by Soni & Associates, which reviewed safety and toxicology data. The ingredient can now be used safely in a wide range of foods and beverages.

According to the company, the strain is in the sporulated form and this enhances survival and proliferation in the gastrointestinal environment unlike vegetative cells that may be destroyed under these conditions. The culture produces only the beneficial L-(+) form of lactic acid in the gastrointestinal tract. Because of its convenient storage, manufacturing and handling attributes, the strain does not require refrigeration to maintain its reported health benefits.

The company also recently launched Saberry, a patent-pending natural extract of amla (Indian gooseberry) recently described in a peer reviewed publication.

According to Sabinsa, natural amla is an antioxidant superfruit, pickled and preserved for its health food benefits and used in the Ayurvedic tradition as a tonic in multiple compositions to support general health maintenance and the management of various health conditions.
