The World’s First Probiotic Coffee
Tipton Mills of Buffalo, NY recently announced that it has created the world’s first probiotic instant coffee.
Consumers are now able to get a daily dose of probiotics with their morning joe, specifically in Tipton Mills private label and direct-to-consumer instant coffees and other beverages.
Probiotics are commonly associated with yogurt, but now a small company called Tipton Mills has launched a coffee brand using Ganeden Biotech’s GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086). GanedenBC30 can survive heat, cold and other conditions that destroy most probiotics and this has made warm probiotic beverages possible. In clinical studies, it has been shown to support digestive and immune health as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. According to Tipton Mills, one cup of probiotic coffee can deliver up to 5 times the amount of active probiotic cultures as those in a single serving of yogurt.
According to Ganeden Biotech Vice President of Business Development Mike Bush:
“Coffee is one of the two largest selling beverages in the world. Our goal is to improve quality of life through probiotics, and it just makes sense to add it to something that consumers are already enjoying on a daily basis.”
According to the Tipton Mills website, which sites the National Institutes of Health, probiotics are live microorganisms, similar to beneficial bacteria, that are found in our bodies. Many research studies show probiotics can help support healthy digestion, immunity, stress levels, women’s health, and oral health.
