The Power of Fermentation
Our proprietary fermentation technology enhances the polyphenol compounds found in fruit, creating new bioactive compounds with therapeutic effects far more potent than the original fruit. Historically noted for their antioxidant effects, superfruits are now recognized for nutrient-rich compounds such as anthocyanins and flavonoids, leading to a whole new understanding of their positive impact on human health benefits.
Our technology creates a postbiotic (“pre-digested”) compound, a new classification in the pre/probiotic market segment. Postbiotics produced through fermentation are now recognized as more bioavailable (more absorbable in the body) and, therefore, more effective than regular supplements.
Our biotransformation technology:
- enables a superior polyphenolic extraction, that protects and preserves the powerful compounds
- augments the original healthful properties of the fruit through the creation of new bioactive compounds
- creates a postbiotic product for enhanced absorption
Fermented Wild Blueberry
Fermented Wild Blueberry, our flagship product, is a postbiotic wild blueberry ingredient created from an all-natural proprietary fermentation process which biotransforms the polyphenols creating new metabolites and enhances the bioavailability of the fruits’ underlying health benefits, including immune function, cardiovascular support, weight management, eye health and cognitive function.
The launch of Fermented Wild Blueberry is scheduled for 2021.

Natural Cholesterol Management Ingredient
Our cholesterol-management ingredient product (FCMI) offers a natural, high-efficacy solution to cholesterol management.
Results from pre-clinical trials indicate that it has double the efficacy of the leading natural solution to cholesterol management and lowers “LDL” cholesterol, otherwise known as “bad” cholesterol, by as much as 40%.
Our pre-clinical study produced the following results when compared with the control group:
- Total cholesterol reduced by approx. 10%
- Good Cholesterol (HDL) increased by 50%
- Bad Cholesterol (LDL) reduced by 38.9%
- Triglycerides (blood fat) reduced by 24%
The launch of our cholesterol-management ingredient is scheduled for 2022.
