THE IMMUNE SYSTEM’S PERFECT STIMULATOR
SACCOLIN Dried yeast
SACCOLIN MOS offers all the good properties of yeast cell walls. Yeast cell walls stimulate the immune system of both man and animals. They have pathogenic binding properties, a prebiotic effect, support normal digestive function and act as an immunity stimulator.
SACCOLIN: ALL THE GOOD THAT YEAST CELL WALLS HAVE TO OFFER
Yeasts are single-celled microorganisms classified as members of the fungus kingdom. The more than 1.500 species vary greatly in size. The cell structure and function of yeasts set them apart from cells in plant, animals and bacteria. They play a major role in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industry. During the preparation of foods, yeast is used as it is capable of converting carbohydrates into carbon dioxide and alcohols. This process is known as fermentation. For thousands of years the products of this reaction have been used in baking (baker’s yeast) and the production of alcoholic beverages (brewer’s yeast).
The yeast species commonly used for fermentation is Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yeast extract contains free glutamate and the taste they help
create is sometimes referred to as ‘umami’. After autolysis, the soluble yeast extract is separated from the insoluble cell wall by centrifugation.
The wet cell walls that remain are then spray dried resulting in SACCOLIN MOS which represents 26 – 32% of the dry weight of Saccharomyces.

New product: Yeast cell walls
The nutritional properties are mainly due to the high content of β-glucans and mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS). In this case, β-glucans are able to strengthen the immune system in a non-specific way by stimulating the proliferation of macrophages and neutrophils. These white blood cells, in turn, can defuse bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. The mannan components of the cell wall are characterized by being able to bind to the fimbriae of the bacterial cell. As a result, this pathogen can no longer attach itself to the intestinal wall and leaves the digestive system bound to the MOS. The use of this product in young animal feed is therefore logical, certainly to stimulate intestinal health and the development of the immune system. Please...
