Immune health player Biothera has named Xsto Solutions as its eastern U.S. distributor of Wellmune WGP and its other immune-enhancing ingredients for foods, beverages and supplements.

Wellmune WGP, derived from the cell walls of a proprietary strain of yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae​) via a patented manufacturing process, is a natural carbohydrate that activates key immune cells.

Designed for use with foods, beverages and premium supplements, Wellmune can be used in a large number of subcategories in each segment. For example, beverages example, may include dairy, waters, teas, juices, sports drinks and other functional beverages, as well as powdered beverages.

The company claims that Wellmune, unlike other natural products, enhances immune function without over stimulating the immune system, which may be harmful and claims that its mode of action in the body is well understood.

“XSTO Solutions is a great fit for Biothera because of its experience marketing and selling science-based, premium ingredients,”​ said Richard Mueller, chief executive officer of Biothera. “XSTO will complement The E.T. Horn Company, which is our strong distribution team representing Biothera in the western U.S.”

“Immune support is big growth category for consumers and Wellmune offers robust and unmatched scientific support. We are excited to add this branded ingredient to our portfolio,”​ said Francis Foley, President of Xsto. “The GRAS status provides excellent opportunities for Wellmune in beverages and foods as well as traditional dietary supplements. We look forward to bringing this well researched functional ingredient to our customer base.”
