Wellmune WGP, the natural immune booster from Biothera, will sample all-new applications of its clinically proven ingredient for foods, beverages and supplements at the 2013 IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo in Chicago July 14-16, booth #1333.
Wellmune is a beta 1,3/1,6 glucan derived from a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast. Nine published human clinical studies consistently suggest the ability of Wellmune to safely boost key immune cells that keep the body healthy. Visitors to the Wellmune booth may sample Prodefensis Yogurt from Grupo Gloria that contains both Wellmune and a probiotic, and Prebiotic Freeze Pops with Immune Support made by Fun Treats, Inc. They may also sip milk through Tubulars™ Immunity Straws from Unistraw USA. Several other Wellmune applications will also be available for sampling.
Currently, there are more than 100 products with Wellmune in more than 50 countries around the world. “The food and beverage industry is responding to strong consumer interest in immune health with exciting, refreshing innovations,” said Richard G. Mueller, CEO, Biothera. "The applications we are showcasing at the IFT Expo are cool treats for a hot summer day. They make it fun and convenient for families to incorporate immune support into their everyday lives.” He added that the new innovations underscore the versatility of Wellmune as an ingredient to easily incorporate into virtually any food or beverage. Wellmune is stable to heat, pH, chemical and pressure associated with any manufacturing process.
