According to the National Coffee Association, Americans drink an average of 3.1 cups of coffee a day per person (the average size of a cup is 9 ounces), while the U.S. spends $40 billion on coffee each year.
“Coffee is one of the two largest selling beverages in the world,” said Mike Bush, Vice President of Business Development, Ganeden Biotech. “At Ganeden Biotech, our goal is to improve quality of life through probiotics and it just makes sense to add it to something that consumers are already enjoying on a daily basis.”
Launched with tremendous success and excitement at the June Fancy Food Show, Tipton Mills now makes Ganeden’s probiotic ingredient, GanedenBC30, available for the entire Tipton Mills beverage product offerings – instant coffees, chai lattes, lattes, cappuccinos, teas in various flavors, and even high protein shakes and smoothies. These products are available as stick packs and vertical or horizontal fill and seal packages.
“GanedenBC30 is the most studied heat-stable probiotic in the world and has excellent shelf life,” said Wayne Eschberger, Vice President of Operations at Tipton Mills. “We were looking for a superior tasting, functional instant coffee compared to the typical freeze dried or spray dried soluble products that are available and we feel that we have that now, thanks to Ganeden Biotech and GanedenBC30.”

GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086) is a patented natural probiotic, or good bacteria, that has been researched and shown to support the immune and digestive systems.
While most strains of probiotics need to be delivered in capsule form or in refrigerated products, Ganeden’s probiotic delivery system is different—it’
GanedenBC30 is a highly stable probiotic. It has a naturally occurring layer of organic material that protects the genetic core of the bacteria. This protective layer provides the probiotic the ability to survive extreme temperatures involved in food and beverage manufacturing processes, shelf life, stomach acids and intestinal bile. Other probiotics, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, are unable to form this protective layer, making them more vulnerable to manufacturing conditions.
