EpiCor Immune

How it's Made: Fermentation

EpiCor is a postbiotic fermentate that was developed from more than 75 years of proprietary fermentation experience that produces ingredients with a unique fingerprint of metabolites.

EpiCor 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. EpiCor’s specialized process begins with microorganism cells being deprived of oxygen, which causes them to produce a unique metabolite fingerprint consisting of proteins, peptides, antioxidants, polyphenols, organic acids, nucleotides, polysaccharides (1-3 1-6, beta glucans), and mannans.

The final production step uses a proprietary and gentle drying process that makes the yeast no longer active and captures a complex array of metabolites created during fermentation. The dehydrated fermentate is milled to a fine powder then packaged within containers designed to protect it during storage and handling. The entire process is done under strict cGMP manufacturing and processing guidelines to ensure a consistently high quality and safe material.

Following extensive safety and identity testing, the end result is EpiCor - a whole food yeast fermentate that helps support the immune system and modulate the gut microbiome.
