At Vitafoods Europe 2019 we are presenting an innovative product at the New Product Zone, which contains our immune supporting ingredient Yestimun®. It’s called Soria DefensUp and it’s a syrup.

The syrup is suitable for children and supports the natural immune defence. Based on our Yestimun® Beta-Glucan and standardised plant extracts of echinacea, black currant and propolis, fortified with vitamin C and zinc, the syrup has effective immune-enhancing properties. It is completely free of alcohol and sugar.

Yestimun® successfully presented at Health Ingredients Europe

From 27th until 29th November Leiber GmbH presented its immune ingredient Yestimun® Beta-Glucan for functional foods and food supplements at the HI Europe in Frankfurt, a leading event for nutritional ingredients.

We showcased a quite new product from one of our customers, which includes bovine colostrum, vitamins, minerals and Yestimun®. Bovine colostrum is a liquid secreted by the mammary gland after birth. The product supports the effects of Yestimun® by maintaining the proper function of the immune system. Furthermore it protects cells from oxidative stress.

At the innovation tour about “healthy mind & body: cognitive & immune health” we informed the visitors about our latest study results. Besides the reduction of severity of cold symptoms the study showed, that (1-3), (1-6)- β-D-glucans from brewers‘ yeast have a positive effect on blood pressure and joy. It is discussed that the mode of action for this effect refers to the selective production of the natural messenger substance “Interleukin-10” by immune cells. An increase of this messenger substance is also linked to the prevention of depression.

Yestimun® shows multifunctional effects when added to fermented milk products (yoghurt)

Reseachers from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland investigated the properties of GRAS and Novel Food approved immune ingredient Yestimun® when added to the fermented milk product “yoghurt”.

What the scientists found out is really worth mentioning: The addition of Yestimun® (0,4 %) during yoghurt production showed highly significant and practically relevant reduction of fermentation time (-25 %). This result is economically interesting for the functional food industry, because of the possible reduction of production costs and time.

But that´s not all: Researchers also found that syneresis decreased with added Yestimun® (Syneresis denotes the expulsion of liquid whey from yogurt and is a primary defect often related to consumer acceptability). Other parameters also improved (e.g. hardness, total work done, adhesive, force, adhesiveness). Viscosity, color and titratable acidity stayed unaffected. From the consumer view it is also important that an added substance does not disturb sensory demands. The Scottish scientists could show that 0,4 % Yestimun® added during yoghurt production had no effects on the sensory properties.

Overall these findings lead to the question about the mechanism of the effects. This was not objective of this study but will be investigated at a later stage. One mechanism can already be excluded, by meaning that Yestimun® may be a substrate for the fermentation bacteria. In earlier studies we could determine that Yestimun® beta-glucan cannot be metabolized by fermentation bacteria, which could be shown by using Bifidobacterium breve Strain JCM1192 as an example.

Finally it can be stated: Yestimun® is a multifunctional ingredient. It helps consumers to enhance immune capacity and supports the production process. All in one!

Yestimun® Beta-Glucan now approved as Novel Food Ingredient

The immune ingredient Yestimun® Beta-Glucan finally achieved a new regulatory status. After being sold for 15 years officially as normal food ingredient, the regulatory status now changed to “Novel Food”.

During the last years some beta-glucans have been sold as normal food while others have been categorized as Novel Food ingredient. This caused lots of regulatory discrepancies and discussions with authorities and customers. To have an equal competition with other Novel Food registered beta-glucans and to make the regulatory aspects easier and better understandable, Leiber GmbH finally decided to make a Novel Food application for Yestimun® as well.

“There have been several reasons for making an own full application and not just a substantial equivalence”, explained Eike Hagemann, Business Unit Director Health at Leiber GmbH. “The most important aspect was to expand the use levels and food categories for Yestimun® in comparison to already authorized yeast beta-glucans.”

The own Novel Food application for Yestimun® includes use levels up to 1500 mg per day in food supplements. These dosages are safe and give more possibilities for different product concepts. “The new Novel Food approval will make regulatory issues easier for our customers, especially in countries, where the authority’s opinion has been a big challenge before”, says Hagemann.

Now the regulatory status is officially confirmed by the European Authorities and should be accepted everywhere (Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/2078). Furthermore the process of Novel Food Authorization also included a complete safety assessment of Yestimun® and confirms the high quality and safety of the ingredient for functional food and supplement applications. In combination with the ongoing interest and trend to immune supporting products we can look forward to new interesting products including the immune ingredient Yestimun® from brewers’ yeast. You find the commission implementing decision here: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2017.295.01.0077.01.ENG&toc=OJ:L:2017:295:TOC.
