Video: Probiotic Manufacturing Concerns

As live organisms, probiotics are subject to a host of potential manufacturing issues, which increases the importance of selecting the right contract manufacturing partner.

Preservation and stability are crucial when manufacturing a probiotic product, with decisions such as processing method, delivery mechanism, storage and packaging all playing a key role. Even when a contract manufacturer gets all those components right, issues can arise, such as consumer concern regarding the use of corn-derived maltodextrin as a flow agent—and whether the corn was genetically modified.

In this video, Ross Pelton, R.Ph., Ph.D., CCN, scientific director for Essential Formulas Inc.., addressed the topic at Ingredient Marketplace in Orlando earlier this year.

SupplySide West 2016 features an array of educational sessions on related topics.
