Cell Biotech, 11 types of lactic acid bacteria developed in-house, certified for safety by the U.S. FDA

(Gimpo = Larose.VIP) Reporter Hyunsoo Kim = In the fermentation wing of Cell Biotech’s Gimpo factory, which I visited on the 22nd, work on cultivating lactic acid bacteria was in full swing in each bioreactor (fermentation tube) containing yogurt-colored liquid.

The principle is to inoculate lactic acid bacteria into the medium, which is a nutrient for cell growth, and then multiply them in large quantities. Lactic acid bacteria powder is produced by separating lactic acid bacteria from the culture medium, coating them with sugars and proteins, and then freeze-drying them.

The company explained that if each fermentation tube is cultured for 16 to 20 hours, up to 3,000 liters (liters) of lactic acid bacteria can be cultured per day, which is equivalent to about 10 tons (tons).

This company recently developed 11 types of lactic acid bacteria that received ‘GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)’ certification, a food raw material and additive safety certification system from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

FDA GRAS certification is a system that verifies safety and functionality through analysis of the entire base sequence of lactic acid bacteria, antibiotic resistance, virulence factors, and animal toxicity tests.

Cell Biotech announced that it has received certification for 11 types of lactic acid bacteria, including GRN numbers 1078 to 1088, which are patented strains used as the main ingredient in all products of the lactic acid bacteria brand ‘Duorac’.

As a result, Cell Biotech now possesses the largest number of FDA GRAS registered lactic acid bacteria, surpassing Denmark’s Christian Hansen (9 types), America’s DuPont Danisco (7 types), and Japan’s Morinaga (6 types).

According to Cell Biotech, there are about 1,000 raw materials that have received safety certification from the FDA, and among them, only 68 types of lactic acid bacteria are GRAS certified.

During this certification process, Cell Biotech emphasized that it focused on proving safety by submitting not only intake data and toxicity test results, but also test results showing that it is safe to consume up to 10 billion of each of 11 types of lactic acid bacteria.

In addition, in clinical trials, lactic acid bacteria showed a survival effect in spices that have a microbial inhibitory effect, and it was also effective in the intestines of Koreans who frequently consume spicy food.

“We discovered and developed 100% bacteria from traditional Korean fermented foods,” said Im Sang-hyun, vice director of Cell Biotech’s Cell Engineering Research Institute. “Lactobacillus can only provide health benefits if it survives well in the intestines, and Koreans have a high survival rate even with spicy spices due to their eating habits.” “I saw it,” he said.

Cell Biotech plans to continue research and development to discover new roles for unknown lactic acid bacteria along with functionality, and is considering plans to enter new markets such as the United States and China in addition to the 40 countries it has been exporting to, including Asia and Europe.
