Ohio Patent of the Month – September 2022

Our gastrointestinal tract plays a critical role in our overall physiological health and wellbeing. Probiotics, a type of microorganism, can be ingested to benefit gut health by improving digestion, prevent and treat diarrhea, and combat other medical issues like irritable bowel syndrome. However, they can be difficult to manufacture as many types of probiotics are not shelf-stable, or require complex processes to make them bioavailable. 

Ganedan Biotech, Inc. is a science-focused company that centers around nutrition with the intent to provide consumers with safe and efficient probiotic supplements to improve their health. They understand that a healthy lifestyle and probiotics can help keep gut microbiota balanced, especially when so many of us struggle with everyday stresses, medications, and poor diet that lead to decreased health and wellbeing.

Their development involves a bioavailable form of Bacillus coagulans, a spore-forming probiotic. It is isolated from natural sources, such as heat-treated soil samples inoculated into nutrient medium. They have combined this probiotic with grain-based compositions such as rice, wheat, rye, and oats. Since it is heat-resistant, it can also be incorporated into soups or other hot-meals. 

In comparison to vegetative-based probiotics, Bacillus coagulans can survive most manufacturing processes, are stable in the low pH environment of the stomach, have a longer shelf-life and can be used in a wide range of products. Its exceptional benefits for gut health, stability and bioavailability make this a great choice for everyone looking to improve their health and wellbeing.
