Fruit d'Or debuts probiotic gummy at Probiota Americas event

Ingredient developer Fruit d’Or officially launched what it billed as the world’s first cranberry probiotic gummy product at the recent IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas event. 

The event was hosted by William Reed in Chicago in early June, brought together 280 regulators, probiotics and prebiotics researchers and product developers. Next year’s event is scheduled to take place in San Francisco, June 7-9.

Fruit d’Or is a Canadian-based purveyor of various forms of cranberry for foods and beverages and functional ingredients derived from the fruit.  The company has been expanding cranberry acreage in Quebec to meet rising demand. One of the ingredients that the company has been pushing lately has been its LactoCran ingredient, which pairs 250mg its Cran Naturelle prebiotic ingredient derived from cranberry seeds with 1 billion CFUs of Bacillus coagulans​ supplied by Sabinsa. 

Stephen Lukawski, director of business development for Fruit d’Or, said testing shows the combination outperforms the pairing of B. coagulans​ with FOS, a common prebiotic ingredient. “Results show that ​Bacillus coagulans probiotic strain from Sabinsa has 200 percent more activity growth when combined with the cranberry than FOS,”​ he said.

In recent years Fruit d’Or has been touting its high quality assurance standards.  To combat what Lukawski said is significant adulteration in the sphere the company has pioneered a MALDI TOF analysis method, developed in concert with Christian Krueger, PhD of the University of Wisconsin.
