GANEDEN BIOTECH NAMES NEALANDERS INTERNATIONAL EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTOR FOR FOOD, BEVERAGE AND PET FOOD INDUSTRIES IN CANADA

New Partnership Increases GanedenBC30r Probiotic Availability and Use in Canada

CLEVELAND, October 12, 2011 - Ganeden Biotech announced today that the GanedenBC30 probiotic is now available in Canada through Nealanders International Inc., a world-class manufacturer and supplier of food ingredients and additives to the food industry. Nealanders is now the exclusive distributor of GanedenBC30 in Canada. This new partnership strengthens both companies' capabilities to develop healthier food, beverage and pet food products with Canadian manufacturers.

On trend, today's consumers are looking for food products that contain health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Nealanders' partnership with Ganeden Biotech and its GanedenBC30 probiotic (Bacillus coagulans, GBI-30, 6086) further demonstrates Nealanders' strength of adopting leading edge technologies to support their customers' development of innovative concepts. Nealanders can now help their customers develop products with increased digestive and immune health benefits by adding GanedenBC30.

The composition of GanedenBC30 differentiates itself from other probiotic ingredients, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, due to its ability to survive manufacturing processes, shelf life, stomach acids and intestinal bile. This increased resilience enables GanedenBC30 to deliver more intact active bacteria cells to the lower intestine, where it can metabolize and deliver a number of health benefits. The superiority of GanedenBC30 allows it to be incorporated into a variety of foods ranging from frozen yogurt and baked goods to hot cereals and confections. The strength of GanedenBC30 can be linked to its naturally occurring layer of organic material that protects the genetic core of the bacteria. Nealanders believes its customers will be very excited for such a unique and effective active bacterial culture now available to the Canadian market.
