How Nichi Glucan is made?

ニチグルカン工場

First, we make a medium for cultivating black yeast. We use water from the Niyodo River system, which is said to be the clearest river in Japan, for the medium.

Next, the AFO-202 strain is added to the culture and wait for the black yeast to produce β-1,3-1,6-glucan around its own body.

Once the glucan is produced, the product is heat sterilised and filled. From the time of cultivation to the time of filling, other micro organisms are controlled and only the black yeast is maintained.

What is beta-glucan produced by the black yeast fungus?

The beta-glucan produced by the black yeast fungus does not need to be extracted, as is the case with shiitake. It is produced efficiently by cultivating the black yeast fungus, so that foods rich in beta-glucan can be produced.
