Ganeden, the Cleveland-based manufacturer of patented strains of probiotics; and Sensus America, part of Netherlands based inulin manufacturer Sensus, announced that they have formed a strategic alliance.

Through the alliance, the companies have created Frutalose® PRO; a liquid prebiotic, chicory root fiber syrup blended with the highly stable probiotic, GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086).

Frutalose PRO was created by combining chicory root based Frutalose SF75, which is a prebiotic liquid inulin fiber, with the probiotic GanedenBC30. This allows food and beverage manufacturers to design products that provide a multitude of health benefits. This highly stable ingredient combination is a low calorie and low sugar, clinically-proven symbiotic, designed to maximize health benefits to the consumer; particularly in the areas of protein utilization, and digestive health.

Officials say the new alliance underscores the companies’ shared vision of improving quality of life through innovative food ingredient solutions. A combination of Sensus’ scientific and technical expertise in the area of innovative inulin-based solutions—and Ganeden’s leadership in probiotic innovations—will bring pre/probiotic fortification solutions to the yogurt industry as well as the food and beverage industry in general.

“Partnering with an industry leader such as Sensus will enable us to broaden the applications of GanedenBC30 into more functional food and beverage applications,” says Andrew Lefkowitz, president of Ganeden. “The experience, knowledge and high standard of quality that Sensus brings to the chicory root fiber inulin market further supports our commitment to provide superior formulations to food and beverage industry.”

“We are excited to partner with an innovative probiotic company that shares a vision of improving quality of life through healthy ingredient fortification,” says Carl Volz, president of Sensus America. “By integrating our unique strengths, we will accelerate our business and growth opportunities by capitalizing on the unique opportunities and synergies that these innovative ingredients provide.”
