PA5051 The New "Vegan" Probiotic

Fairfield, NJ, August 8, 2014 -- "PA5051, a hardy probiotic supplement based on Pediococcus Acidilactici, is a new novel probiotic that serves the vegan marketplace extremely well," says Gil Bakal, Managing Director of A&B Ingredients. Cultivated from wild switch grass, the new probiotic supplement has evolved to survive the stresses imposed by nature and the environment. A&B Ingredients, a leading developer, marketer and distributor of high quality natural food ingredients, added the new probiotic supplement to its product line last month.

Bakal states that PA5051 is a more robust and stable probiotic than most probiotics, which tend to be highly sensitive to acidic exposure and have difficulty in surviving environments with low pH such as those found in human digestive system.

According to Gil Bakal, "We are extremely pleased to bring PA5051 to the ever-growing vegan marketplace. This novel probiotic offers acid, heat, oxygen and heat stability. It can survive and grow in a wide range of pH, temperatures, and osmotic pressures, allowing it to deliver probiotic benefits through the entire digestive tract."

PA5051 is a natural lactic acid probiotic that is non-pathogenic and non-spore forming, thus it does not require any specialized handling or clean up procedures.

Bakal notes, "Since PA5051 is cultivated from nature, it has the ability to withstand stresses that most probiotics are not able to tolerate. Not only is it based on an extremely safe bacteria that has a proven history of use in any food, feed and pet food applications, but it can also survive the digestive system to deliver live bacteria to the intestines to aid in digestion and to help maintain a healthy digestive system."

Among the advantages of PA5051's are:

  • Adapted environmental bacteria which is much more tolerant to heat and acid
  • Vegan Probiotic
  • Delivers live bacteria through digestive system to reach small and large intestines
  • Supports digestion and immunity
  • non-spore forming
