High yield process for the production of probiotic lactic acid bacteria biomass from unsupplemented whey

Tecnológico de Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

This technology is a process subject to produce biomass as probiotic and further protein primary product, dairy fat and lactic acid from whey using lactic acid bacteria. The technology doesn't require cold chain and we reduce the environment impact the milk whey produces

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Ready to Market

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 8

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. Patent pending - MX/a/2008/016554
