Sabinsa Corporation, a manufacturer, supplier and marketer of herbal extracts, cosmeceuticals, minerals, dietary supplements and specialty fine chemicals has helped to develop a combination using its shelf-stable LactoSpore probiotic brand of Bacillus coagulans (MTCC 5856) with Cran Naturelle which is a clinically studied 100% all natural whole food organic cranberry that is non-GMO, pesticide free, and contains no fillers, additives, or flow agents from Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals, a global leader in organic processing and supply of nutraceutical cranberry and blueberry powders, Canada.
This patent pending combination is distinguished as a synbiotic blend, for use in foods, beverages and dietary supplements. It will be marketed and sold as LactoCran by Fruit d'Or. Cranberry seed powder acts as a complete food source when combined with LactoSpore, Sabinsa’s room-temperature stable probiotic strain of Bacillus coagulans, (MTCC 5856).
“Cranberry seed powder in this combination showed remarkable potential as a prebiotic food for growth of LactoSpore compared to commonly used prebiotics such as fructooligosaccharides (FOS),” said Shaheen Majeed, Marketing Director, Sabinsa.
“We’re excited to learn about this level of LactoSpore’s growth activity using our cranberry seed powder,” said Stephen Lukawski, Director of business development and sales, Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals.
“We know that our cranberry seed powder contains over 50% fiber and as much as 25% natural protein, therefore this new combination could be the complete synbiotic solution for gut health and beyond,” he added.
LactoCran provides support for healthy gut and digestive health while its prebiotic function also provides source of tocopherols and tocotrienols thus benefitting heart and circulatory health. LactoCran’s non-lactose, diary-free, non-GMO combination also works well in sports nutrition supplements as it contains a rich composition of 16 essential amino acids and 8 branch chain amino acids.
