Long-life probiotics — in a tasty chew

The new technology ensures long-life probiotics in a flavourful chewy supplement

Anlit has launched ProBites, a long-life probiotic chew supplement line in a variety of flavours. Anlit will present the new supplement alongside other functional gummies and chews at CPhI, 9-11 October, 2018, in Madrid at booth 12F60.

The inherent sensitivity of probiotics raises two key challenges of maintaining stability and extending shelf life in the development of an effective supplement. Until recently, solutions have been limited. Anlit developed an innovative technology it calls “ProBites LLP, Long-Life Probiotic" — that allows for the high stability of live bacteria in ambient conditions, to be incorporated into a flavourful format for the whole family and is easy to enjoy whether at home or on-the-go.

Anlit’s R&D team characterised all the factors that could negatively impact the stability of live bacteria in a food matrix, including moisture and others. The team isolated each potential barrier and crafted a specific solution to overcome them.

The result addresses these issues with the comprehensive solution of the new ProBites, while maintaining great flavour and optimum functionality of the probiotic. The new technology is an excellent carrier of a variety of probiotic strains.

Anlit also invested in a new preparation system to ensure the high stability of the probiotic, creating the ideal production environment for producing chewable probiotics. Precise temperature and humidity controls ensure the probiotic bacteria can live longer. The company then instituted a double packaging system with multilayer laminate to retain a perfect moisture-free support environment for the probiotic and to protect the organoleptic characteristics of the product.

“ProBites LLP taste and look like candy chews and, based on our trials, can become the probiotic choice of kids and adults,” said Shai Karlinski, VP of Sales and Marketing for Anlit.

“This new product line represents our commitment to help consumers get, tasty supplements of the highest standard that all the family loves.”
