HWP Ingredient of the Month: EpiCor

HWP partners with the highest quality ingredient providers in the industry. Each month we highlight one of these ingredients. The February 2020 focus is EpiCor fermentate.

EpiCor fermentate from Embria Health Sciences was developed based on 70 years of fermentation experience by its parent company Diamond V Mills. The company noticed that Diamond V employees who manufactured its yeast culture weren’t using as much sick time as the office workers. Based on this finding, Diamond V commissioned a pilot study to see if there was a causal effect and discovered that the immune system of the workers was stronger. Following that discovery, Embria was formed to develop a commercial application of the health-promoting ingredient. Read the full story here.
