BIOPOLIS, S.L. isolates and selects microorganisms, as well as performing the relevant functional and technological validation tests. We also develop and validate functional ingredients for the food industry.
Regular consumption of functional food is beneficial, improving health and wellbeing and reducing the risk of disease. For consumers, functional food provides both differentiation and added value compared to other traditional products available on the market.
BIOPOLIS, S.L. develops microorganisms and ingredients with functional and technological properties for the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, such as:
Screening, validation and production of probiotics as well as verification of their health benefits and bioavailability in the final product.
Probiotics with specific activity:
Oligosaccharide and polysaccharide additives with validated beneficial effects on health, as well as verification of final product effectiveness:
Purification, identification and production of proteins and enzymes with added value for use in agri-food, chemical and pharmaceutical processes.
Purification and identification of antioxidant compounds, as well as validation of their health benefits and bioavailability in the final product.
Purification and identification of lipid compounds, as well as validation of their health benefits.
To ensure the ingredients we develop are both functional and safe, BIOPOLIS, S.L. follows protocols and criteria pursuant to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), FAO and OMS. Safety assessment includes: strain identification, antibiotic resistance, biogenic amines, D- and L-lactic formation, bile salt deconjugation, and preclinical toxicology (acute) trials in rat/mouse models.
