Bacillus coagulans is a spore forming, probiotic strain. In 1949, Dr.Oki Nakayama from the University of Yamanashi in Japan isolated a species of spore forming lactic acid bacteria from green malt. It was deposited in the ATCC by Japanese researchers and later reclassified as Bacillus coagulans. In 1972, at the request of Sankyo Corporation, the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare approved the use of a B. coagulans strain (designated as strain SANK 70258).Subsequently, in 1973, Sankyo Corporation (currently known as Daiichi Sankyo Co. Ltd) offered formulation and fermentation technology to Sanzyme Limited (earlier known as Uni-Sankyo Ltd).
The Brand and Legacy
Bacillus coagulans is marketed in India under the brand name Sporlac and has been designated as strain ‘Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969’ by Sanzyme Limited and Sanzyme Biologics.The strain Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969 is deposited with Microbial TypeCulture Collection and Gene Bank, India (MTCC 5724P) and Belgian Coordinated Collections of Microorganism (BCCM™ILGM; LMG S−27484). US FDA has determined Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969 strain as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) based on scientific procedures (US FDA Notification GRN-597).
A Stronger Probiotic: Shielded, Resilient and Survives as the fittest!!
Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969 shielded by natural capsules called spore. It can sustain hostile gastric and bile acids in human gut and remains stable in highly acidic (pH 2) environment. It is also resistant to high temperature i.e. up to 85°C for 30 min. From production to consumption, it does not show decrement in viability of cell. It sustains extreme manufacturing processes like fermentation, freezing, thawing,drying, and rehydration, making it the ideal probiotic for food applications. The safety and reliability of Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969 is established not only by scientific studies but also by its unprecedented history of use for 46 years. Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969 has also been studied for benefits in gut health, oral health and vaginal health.
