Probiotic Ingredients with a Difference

Founded in 1997, Cleveland, Ohio-based Ganeden is at the forefront of probiotic research and product development.  Ganeden’s mission is to meet the probiotic needs of markets that have otherwise been unmet by traditional solutions.  

As a company…

Ganeden has completed dozens of scientific trials (over 25 of them published in peer reviewed journals!), demonstrating the safety and efficacy of its probiotic strain, GanedenBC30, and earned FDA GRAS status in 2012. Ganeden has also conducted significant research on the performance of its cosmeceutical ingredient, Bonicel and it's newest immune ingredient, Staimune.  In addition to its extensive library of research, Ganeden continues to invest significant resources in science supporting its ingredients and its technologies.

Its ingredients…

In addition to being backed by peer-reviewed, published scientific studies, Ganeden’s probiotic technologies are secured with more than 130 issued patents in application areas ranging from food and beverage to animal health and human personal care. 

Ganeden is best known for GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086), its patented, FDA GRAS probiotic ingredient found in more than 750 leading food and beverage products around the world. The unique stability of GanedenBC30 allows manufacturers to produce effective probiotic functional foods, beverages and companion animal products. 

Ganeden also offers Bonicel, the first science-backed, probiotic-derived, topical personal care ingredient on the market.  With its ability to improve SEVEN common signs of aging, Bonicel, is the logical choice for sustainable, clinically tested cosmeceutical ingredients.

Ganeden’s newest ingredient, Staimune utilizes the inactivated cells of the patented probiotic, GanedenBC30, which have been shown to support immune health. Staimune opens up opportunities in immune-focused functional foods and beverages in which formulation with live probiotics may not be possible.

Partner support…

Is a huge priority for Ganeden.  Ganeden is more than an ingredient supplier; under Ganeden’s Extra Step Program, each client receives special care from initial contact to product launch and beyond.  With Ganeden you’re not just a customer, you’re a partner.

Education… is a priority

Ganeden is dedicated to educating industry participants and consumers alike with a growing collection of published white papers, its consumer website, social media, representation in global industry groups and through media outreach programs.  “The more we do our part in probiotic education, the more the probiotic industry will grow as a whole”, says Michael Bush, president & CEO at Ganeden.
