Wellmune WGP®, the natural immune booster from Biothera, will sample several new applications including an award-winning platform technology using its clinically proven ingredient for foods, beverages and supplements at SupplySide West 2013 in Las Vegas Nov. 14 to 15, booth #24011.
Wellmune is a beta 1,3/1,6 glucan derived from a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast. Eight published human clinical studies consistently demonstrate the ability of Wellmune to safely boost key immune cells that keep the body healthy.
Visitors to the Wellmune booth may sample products from Natural Immune Products Ltd.’s (UK) Mune™ family of beverages, children’s Gummy Protection gummies with Wellmune from Daclaf and CocoWell truffles, a perennial favorite. Mune was recently named Best Functional Water at the global Beverage Innovation Awards at Drinktec 2013 in Munich.
Currently, there are more than 100 products with Wellmune in more than 50 countries around the world.
“We’re particularly excited to showcase and sample a platform technology like the new, award-winning Mune line of beverage products with Wellmune at Supplyside West,” said Richard G. Mueller, CEO, Biothera. “All of the innovations demonstrate that consumers can have the best of all worlds with the clinically proven functional benefits of Wellmune in delivery formats that align with health and wellness lifestyle trends. And, these products deliver on taste.”
Mueller said that there’s been an explosion of innovations for the Wellmune technology since last year’s SupplySide West, noting the introduction of the combination of Wellmune and a probiotic in Grupo Gloria’s Prodefensis yogurt and a freezer pop that combines Wellmune with a prebiotic.
