Probiotic Delivery System

The precise ratio of apple pectin to apple fiber in Apple PrePectinallows it to form a gel-like matrix when ingested with liquid which surrounds the probiotic organisms, protecting them from destruction in the upper digestive tract.[7] Recent studies have demonstrated probiotic organisms combined with pectin exhibited significantly greater viability in the intestines compared to those that were not.[8] Of the many commercially-available pectins, the type used in Apple PrePectinpossesses the ideal combination of properties required to protect probiotics in the gastrointestinal tract including the capacity to form stable gels in the acidic conditions of the stomach.[9]
