Lallemand Health Solutions has announced the launch of the first and unique organic version of its probiotic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii to mark the hundredth anniversary of its discovery.
“Lallemand Health Solutions is proud to be offering this exclusive innovation. We have revamped this classic probiotic yeast to meet modern market trends,” states Romane Maillet, product manager for the gut health portfolio at Lallemand Health Solutions and probiotic yeast expert, in a press release.
According to Lallemand, because yeast is a plant fungus that grows from agricultural nutrients, unlike bacteria, it is the only probiotic that qualifies for organic certification, giving S. boulardii a competitive edge. “Lallemand Health Solutions offers organic S. boulardii as powder, and it is available as pure organic ingredient for use in organic dietary supplements. Our research and development team has done all the necessary pilot-scale tests to ensure a shelf-life stability of 24 months at 25° Celsius with a concentration set at 20 billion CFU/gram,” adds Maillet.
