Tetra Pak collaborates with AB Biotek to provide postbiotic solutions

Tetra Pak has announced its collaboration with AB Biotek Human Nutrition & Health to introduce "innovative postbiotic solutions".


One of the benefits that Tetra Pak and AB Biotek are exploring is how easily postbiotic powders can be introduced into the food production process at the mixing stage of ultra high temperature products like beverages, dairy products, ice cream and cheese with no need for specialised machinery, allowing producers to meet consumer demand with minimal effort.


Tetra Pak is also exploring the development of an array of postbiotic food concepts, including high-protein ambient yoghurt and high-protein tea, and has already released a postbiotic-enriched cheese product with Italian dairy company Inalpi. Postbiotics can usually be found in fermented foods such as kefir and kimchi.

Gerald Dard, managing director for AB Biotek, said: “For the first time, we can now unlock new opportunities for food producers to offer fortified products in categories such as tea, plant-based beverages, sports drinks and more. We are excited to embark on this exciting journey with Tetra Pak." Alberto Kullovitz, processing director for Tetra Pak, south Europe, continued: “Together with AB Biotek, we have harnessed our scientific knowledge in food to bring new innovative solutions to the market.
