Biothera Ingredient Approved For Use In China

March 7, 2011: 10:39 AM EST
China’s Ministry of Health has approved Biothera’s Wellmune WGP as a novel food ingredient, allowing its use in foods and beverages throughout the country. Wellmune WGP, derived from the cell walls of a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), is clinically proven to safely prime the immune system to keep the body healthy, the company says. The ingredient mobilizes billions of innate immune cells that are part of the body’s natural defenses without over stimulating the immune system. An ingredient in food, beverage and supplement products in more than 30 countries, Wellmune WGP has been designated as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) in the U.S. Biothera specializes  in immune-enhancing ingredients derived from a complex carbohydrate called beta 1,3/1,6 gluco polysaccharide.
