Postbiotic protein ingredient gets self-affirmed GRAS

Superbrewed Food Inc. says it has gained self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status for its proprietary postbiotic cultured protein.

Superbrewed Food Inc. (New Castle, DE) says it has gained self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status for its proprietary postbiotic cultured protein. The company suggests it is the first company to get self-GRAS affirmation for a postbiotic protein produced using an anaerobic fermentation process.

“Superbrewed Food’s postbiotic cultured protein is an anaerobically fermented, whole-food protein made from microflora found in nature that convert plant starches into a nutrient-rich protein,” the company’s press release explains. “The ingredient is more than 80% protein by weight, among the highest protein concentration in a single microbe ever reported.”

In the press release, Bryan Tracy, the company’s CEO and cofounder, stated, “Our protein ingredient performs well in products ranging from alternative dairy to baked goods, due to its neutral taste, natural white color, excellent pH and temperature stability, and good emulsification properties.”
