EpiCor is made through a proprietary fermentation process that has set the standard in the nutrition industry for more than 70 years. This process produces a unique range of metabolites that provides nutritional benefits.
EpiCor whole food fermentate starts with baker’s yeast -- a safe, natural microorganism found throughout nature and used for thousands of years to make beer, wine, bread and other food. Embria’s specialized process begins with microorganism cells being deprived of oxygen , which causes them to produce immune supporting compounds and metabolites such as proteins, peptides, antioxidants, polyphenols, organic acids, and nucleotides. This natural, unique fermentation complex also contains the beneficial yeast cell compounds such as 1-3 1-6 beta glucans and mannans. This unique product stands apart from commodities like nutritional yeast or purified beta glucan ingredients.

The final production step uses a proprietary and gentle drying process to capture the complex array of nutrients created during fermentation. Embria then mills the dehydrated fermentate and packages it within containers designed to protect it during storage and handling. The entire process is done under strict cGMP manufacturing and processing guidelines to ensure consistently high quality and safe material.
Following extensive safety and identity testing, the end result is EpiCor - a whole food yeast fermentate that helps strengthen the immune system everyday.
