Christmas campaign for the needy

Pyjamas, a coffee machine, a Lego excavator, a little radio: these are but a few of the Caritas clients’ wishes which the staff of Leiber GmbH in Bramsche made come true as part of the Christmas campaign. Gabriele Bührs of the Caritas’ General Social Counselling (ASB) for the city and district of Osnabrück accepted colourful packages for 51 persons at Leiber.

Caritas staff had collected the wishes in recent months and forwarded an anonymised list to Leiber. The Bramsche-based company brought the Christmas campaign with Caritas into being for the second time since 2014. Founded in 1954, Leiber GmbH makes animal feed and foodstuffs from brewer’s yeast. Its employees number 180, many of whom took part in the gift campaign.

Originally, the Works Council called the campaign into being at the suggestion of a staff member, and immediately found support from the management headed by Managing Director Michael von Laer. Again this year, top management took part in the campaign. “It is fantastic that staff and management alike support the Christmas campaign,” said Claudia Kruse, the Works Council member who organised the campaign at Leiber GmbH.

Yestimun® Beta-Glucan now approved as Novel Food Ingredient Yestimun® Beta-Glucan now approved as Novel Food Ingredient
The immune ingredient Yestimun® Beta-Glucan finally achieved a new regulatory status. After being sold for 15 years officially as normal food ingredient, the regulatory status now changed to “Novel Food”.

During the last years some beta-glucans have been sold as normal food while others have been categorized as Novel Food ingredient. This caused lots of regulatory discrepancies and discussions with authorities and customers. To have an equal competition with other Novel Food registered beta-glucans and to make the regulatory aspects easier and better understandable, Leiber GmbH finally decided to make a Novel Food application for Yestimun® as well.

“There have been several reasons for making an own full application and not just a substantial equivalence”, explained Eike Hagemann, Business Unit Director Health at Leiber GmbH. “The most important aspect was to expand the use levels and food categories for Yestimun® in comparison to already authorized yeast beta-glucans.”

The own Novel Food application for Yestimun® includes use levels up to 1500 mg per day in food supplements. These dosages are safe and give more possibilities for different product concepts. “The new Novel Food approval will make regulatory issues easier for our customers, especially in countries, where the authority’s opinion has been a big challenge before”, says Hagemann.

Now the regulatory status is officially confirmed by the European Authorities and should be accepted everywhere (Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/2078). Furthermore the process of Novel Food Authorization also included a complete safety assessment of Yestimun® and confirms the high quality and safety of the ingredient for functional food and supplement applications. In combination with the ongoing interest and trend to immune supporting products we can look forward to new interesting products including the immune ingredient Yestimun® from brewers’ yeast.

Veaty® - The solution for vegetarian & vegan applications Veaty® - The solution for vegetarian & vegan applications
Veaty® - The solution for vegetarian & vegan applications
In July 2017 Leiber finalized its Veaty® concept and officially presented it at the IFT in Las Vegas. This concept especially has been created as solution for vegetarian & vegan applications, like: meat analogues, textured vegetable proteins (TVP), spreads, high protein applications, etc. and is based on a “building block system” which consists of the 3 basic functionalities:
Off-taste masking - Adding taste profiles - Colouring 
  • Extracts for Masking:
    To neutralize the genuine, unpleasant off-taste of the raw materials used for vegetarian & vegan applications, especially vegetable proteins like: soya, pea, lupine and chickpea 
  • Extracts for Taste (BN = Body Notes, TN = Top Notes):
    The body notes impart “basic tastes” with profiles like beef, chicken, lamb or pork The top notes (TN) can be applied as key flavour components to individualise and strengthen product taste profiles like: roasted-smoky, barbecued, roasted-beef 
  • Extracts for Colouring:
    Neutral in taste and giving an intense brown colour to achieve a “meaty-like” look.

 

Veaty® - The solution for vegetarian & vegan applications
The Veaty® range is a tailor-made and improved development for vegetarian & vegan food applications based on our standard Leiber extracts. Due to the fact that our yeast extracts do have a natural protein content of approx. 70% the biggest advantage we can offer is that we are solely using “protein-mixes” (yeast extracts), to achieve the mentioned functionalities. This means no “non-protein” ingredients are added to the final product. Next to this our Veaty® products are of course clean label, from a natural source, GMO-free (VLOG certified), kosher, halal and gluten free according to EU legislation 828/2014.

Visitors from China at Leiber, specialist in brewers’ yeast Visitors from China at Leiber, specialist in brewers’ yeast
A group of herd managers from Chinese dairy operations made a visit to Leiber’s Bramsche headquarter in April. The delegation was received by Leiber’s Product Manager for Livestock, Christoph Schröder, who attended to all the needs of the delegation during their stay and was available to answer any and all questions.

The group of Chinese visitors got a good idea of Leiber’s production facilities and the high quality requirements, as reflected in the various standards expected from the entire company.

Top priority was given to enabling German and Chinese herd managers to share their experiences. In this connection, the group visited three specialised dairy farming operations in the Osnabrück and Emsland region. Practical questions concerning silage and calf rearing met with great interest. The different ways to make use of Leiber® BT brewers’ yeast with ruminants were gone into at length.
