Ganeden Biotech: New United States Patent Protects Probiotic Innovation in All Coffee, Tea, and Cereal

Ganeden Biotech issued patent covers all
Bacillus coagulans
including GanedenBC30

CLEVELAND, OH (April 29, 2014)
-- Ganeden Biotech, a recognized world leader in the manufacturing and
marketing of probiotics, today announced the issuance of a United States
patent that covers the use of allBacillus coagulans
in all coffee, tea and cereal.

The issuance of patent #US 8,697,055 B2 protects the use of allBacillus
coagulans
probiotic strains including GanedenBC30
in coffee, tea and cereal applications. "Our patent attorneys at Mintz Levin
continue to provide superior legal counsel that strengthens our market
position," said David Keller, Ganeden Biotech VP of Scientific Operations.

The probiotic industry is growing rapidly, with no indication that it will be
slowing down anytime soon; by 2015 the market is expected to reach $31.1
billion globally, with about 90% of that from the sale of functional foods
and beverages. In addition, consumer awareness continues to increase with
over 80% of consumers associating probiotics with a health benefit. Ganeden
Biotech's goal is to make probiotics available in every-day food so that
consumers don't have to take another pill. Coffee, tea and cereal are a big
part of that.

Spore forming probiotic organisms such as GanedenBC30
are the only probiotics that have the ability to withstand harsh manufacturing
processes, especially those required to make hot tea, coffee and cereal. The
effectiveness of these organisms can be linked to its naturally occurring
layer of organic material (spore), which protects the genetic core of the
bacteria throughout the manufacturing process and the transit in to the gut.
Non-spore forming probiotics, such asLactobacillus
andBifidobacterium
, are unable to form this protective layer, making them much more vulnerable
to manufacturing conditions.

"This patent goes a long way toward supporting our partners in their quest to
launch new brands, and revolutionize existing ones," said Andy Lefkowitz, CEO
of Ganeden Biotech. "When combined with the FDA's No Objection letter on GRAS
(safety), 17 studies published in peer reviewed journals, over 100 patents
issued around the world and the pending issuance of the first monograph by
the USP, we have again demonstrated our commitment to science-based probiotic
innovation."
