CLEVELAND—Ganeden Biotech’s GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) probiotic ingredient received approval by food and drug authorities in four significant Asian markets: Japan, India, Taiwan and the Philippines.
GanedenBC30 is available as a result of the established partnerships between Maypro Industries in Japan and Connell Bros. Company in India, Taiwan and the Philippines.
"Japan, Taiwan, Philippines and India are significant markets within Asia, where the consumers are already familiar with the benefits of probiotics," said Stephen Quinn, international business development and regulatory manager of Ganeden Biotech. "The regulatory approvals provide a great deal of opportunity for probiotic innovation within these thriving functional food and beverage markets, and we are thrilled to be able to introduce the unique formulating capabilities of GanedenBC30."
