Nourished customizable gummy vitamins add ADM’s postbiotic as ingredient

According to ADM, studies show HT-BPL1 offers some of the same benefits as its BPL1 probiotic counterpart, including positive effects on metabolic health through reduction in waist circumference.

Customizable gummy vitamin brand Nourished is offering a new ingredient option to customers: ADM’s (Chicago) HT-BPL1 postbiotic ingredient. HT-BPL1 is the heat-treated counterpart of ADM’s BPL1 Bifidobacterium lactis probiotic strain. According to ADM, studies show HT-BPL1 offers some of the same benefits as its probiotic counterpart, including positive effects on metabolic health through reduction in waist circumference.

HT-BPL1 is the first postbiotic ingredient Nourished is offering its customers. “We only use ingredients that have scientific data to support their benefits, so when I read the incredible research on HT-BPL1, I knew immediately it was a perfect match,” said Nourished founder and CEO Melissa Snover, in a press release. “We are so excited to add it to our portfolio and be able to further serve and help all of our customers who are looking for metabolic health solutions.” Nourished offers 31 other vitamins, minerals, and nutrients for customers to choose from.

ADM Ventures in an investor in Remedy Health, the owner of the Nourished brand and a dietary supplement company specializing in 3D printing of personalized wellness products.

HT-BPL1’s postbiotic form means the ingredient can withstand the harsh processing conditions involved in making a gummy supplement. “Postbiotics can provide similar benefits as probiotics, but as inanimate microorganisms they retain stability during harsh processing conditions, which increases application versatility,” said the ADM press release. “HT-BPL1 is uniquely suited to the 3D printing process used to create Nourished vitamin stacks, a process that many probiotics would not survive.”
