A&B Ingredients Unveils The Next Generation Probiotic

PA5051 Probiotic More Robust And Stable, Provides Important And Beneficial Functions

Fairfield, NJ, June 11, 2014 -- A&B Ingredients, a leading developer, marketer, and distributor of high-quality natural food ingredients, in cooperation with Imagilin Technology LLC, announced the availability of a new generation of probiotics -- PA5051. PA5051 is a hardy probiotic supplement based on P. Acidilactici.

According to Gil Bakal, A&B Ingredients Managing Director, "PA5051 is a novel, more robust and more stable strain of Pediococcus Acidilactici that is able to withstand high temperatures up to 185⁰ F for a prolonged period of time and is able to survive in highly acidic conditions."

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

Bakal notes that since the parent strain of PA5051 is cultivated from nature, it has developed the ability to withstand stresses that most probiotics are not able to tolerate. Not only is it an extremely safe bacteria, with a history of use in 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
  • Delivers live bacteria through the digestive system to reach small and large intestines
  • Supports digestion and immunity
  • Compatible with antibiotics
