High performance process to produce probiotic biomass from lactic acid bacteria from not supplemented milk serum

Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

We use the milk whey to grow lactic acid bacteria as probiotic for the food and pharmaceutical purposes. Our technology reduces the energetic, storage and distribution costs and its green technology, because it doesn't require cold chain and also we reduce the environment impact of the milk whey.

Primary Application Area: Foods & Agriculture

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Our value proposal is using the milk whey (the principal pollutant in the dairy industry) as a culture medium for the production of high value probiotics. Avoiding the cold chain, energy saving, lowering distribution costs, storage and production costs. Taking care of a tendency of a healthier nutrition.
