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.

Visit of a Korean television team at Leiber Visit of a Korean television team at Leiber
Once again a Korean television team filmed the production of Leiber GmbH at its location in Engter and interviewed the employees on the production process and the ingredients of brewers’ yeast.

As already in the past year 2016, the Korean television team accompanied the production steps of the brewers’ yeast: Starting with the raw material receipt, where the liquid by-products from various German beer breweries are delivered, until the final production step, where the liquid raw material dries gently in a spray tower. Subsequently, the powdered beer yeast is packaged.

The brewers’ yeast, which is spray-dried at Leiber GmbH in Engter, contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. The positive properties of brewers’ yeast are often used in food supplements for example as tablets. In Korea brewers’ yeast is deemed to be a “miracle cure” against hair loss and for hair growth due to its valuable ingredients. The brewers’ yeast from Leiber is currently marketed in the teleshopping business. Several Korean television channels are taking up the successful subject of brewers’ yeast and heading to Germany to learn more about the raw material and the production of brewers’ yeast powder.

Leiber GmbH welcomed the visitors from Korea and is glad about the great interest. The natural products of the brewers’ yeast specialist from Bramsche are very popular with customers everywhere in the world.

For more than 60 years the company Leiber, based in Bramsche, has been one of the leading manufacturers of speciality yeast products "Made in Germany". Using innovative biotechnological processing techniques, the natural raw material brewers' yeast is converted into high-quality products that are then used in the animal nutrition, foodstuffs, food supplements and biotechnology sectors. With two locations in Germany, as well as additional production facilities in Poland and Russia, Leiber's over 200 dedicated staff manufactures brewers' yeast products and yeast extracts of the highest quality.

Two new colleagues have been augmenting the Animal Nutrition Business Unit at brewer’s yeast specialist Leiber since February.

Leiber GmbH was able to gain Elena Polster, a specialist in the field of biotechnology, for its Product Development Division. After getting her Master of Science degree in biotechnological processes in Mexico and a Bachelor of Science in biotechnology at the Hamburg University of Applied Science, as well as working as a scientific assistant for applied microbiology, Elena Polster is now contributing to the continuous improvement of the quality of Leiber brewer’s yeast products and expanding the product range by developing additional product variations.

After getting his Master of Science with an emphasis on animal sciences at the Technical University of Munich, he gathered in-depth knowledge as a research associate and consultant. While working at the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture, he most recently supervised the “optiKuh” project – a nationwide joint project with the aim of researching the best conditions for dairy cows seeing that they are implemented in practice.

“By expanding the team, we now have more possibilities to serve national and international customers individually and innovatively at the accustomed high level of quality,” says Nikolaus Jungbluth, Director of Animal Nutrition, on the growth.
