A&B Ingredients unveils next-gen probiotic
PA5051 is a novel, robust and more stable strain of Pediococcus acidilacti that can withstand temps up to 185 degrees F and survive in highly acidic conditions.

A&B Ingredients, a leading developer, marketer and distributor of high-quality natural food ingredients, in cooperation with Imaglin Technology LLC, announced the availability of a new generation of probiotics—PA5051. PA5051 is a hardy probiotic supplement based on P. acidilactici. 
According to Gil Bakal, A&B Ingredients managing director, “PA5051 is a novel, more robust and more stable strain of Pediococcus acidilacti that is able to withstand high temperatures up to 185 degrees F for a prolonged period of time, and is able to survive in highly acidic conditions."
PA5051 is a natural lactic acid probiotic that is a non-spore forming probiotics, thus it does not require any specialized handling or clean up procedures. 
Bakal notes that since the parent strain of PA5051 is cultivated from nature, it has developed the ability to withstand stresses that most probiotics are not able to tolerate. Not only is it an extremely safe bacteria, with a history of use in food applications, but it can also survive the digestive system to deliver live bacteria to the intestines to aid in digestion and to help maintain a healthy digestive system.

Among the advantages of PA5051:

  • Adapted environmental bacteria which is much more tolerant to heat and acid
  • Delivers live bacteria through digestive system to reach small and large intestines
  • Supports digestion and immunity
  • Compatible with antibiotics
