Nutramunity™ is easy to incorporate into new and existing products

The beta-1,3/1,6-glucan molecule is stable and robust – it does not disintegrate with time, nor does it react or interfere with other ingredients. Since it does not turn rancid, no preservatives are needed. Yeast beta-glucan is highly bioactive; hence, small amounts are sufficient. These properties make incorporation of the ingredient into existing products easy, as it does not require major changes in the current formula.

Novel Food approved

NBG® Particulate is approved as Novel Food in EU and subjected to Article 3.4. of the European novel food Regulation (EC No. 258/97). In EU countries, food and beverages containing the ingredient must therefore be labelled in accordance with this regulation, namely “yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) beta-glucans” and be used within the maximum levels in the foods specified in Annex II of Commission Implementing Decision 2011/762/EU.

GRAS

Yeast beta-1,3/1,6-glucan is GRAS for food use in US (FDA 21 CFR 172.898).

Kosher, Halal

Nutramunity™ Beta-Glucan is kosher- and halal-certified.

Safe for people with yeast allergy

Nutramunity™ Beta-Glucan is non-allergenic and those components in yeast which may cause allergy (i.e. mannose-proteins) are completely removed during the production process.
