Cellavent launches fermented organic turmeric ingredient

Due to the controlled fermentation process used to produce the ingredient, fermentlife boasts a full matrix of other bioactive ingredients, including postbiotics and paraprobiotics.

Cellavent (Düsseldorf, Germany) launched a new fermented organic turmeric, called fermentlife, that the company says offers a host of health benefits, including the antioxidant properties of curcuminoids, as well as organoleptic properties. Due to the controlled fermentation process used to produce the ingredient, fermentlife also boasts a full matrix of other bioactive ingredients, including postbiotics and paraprobiotics.

“When we set out to create fermentlife, our goal wasn’t just to increase bioavailability or curcuminoid content, but to offer the full spectrum of turmeric’s unique bioactive profile,” said Marcus Haag, CEO of Cellavent, in a press release. “We knew that fermentation was the key to unlocking that potential, but we also knew that getting the process right was crucial. Over the course of two years, we’ve developed a highly controlled fermentation system. This is just the beginning, because we now have technology in place that will allow us to create new and unique fermented products for a healthier world. And because our capabilities are reproducible and scalable, our customers will have opportunities to do the same.”

Fermentlife Turmeric is created with three certified Lactobacillus strains, which produce numerous metabolites during the fermentation process. It can be used in powders, capsules, and liquids. Available globally, it is certified organic in the European Union and has applications in both nutraceuticals and food.
