CLEVELAND, OHIO — Ganeden has made advancements for the usage of its GanedenBC30 shelf-stable probiotic strain in Canada thanks to recent regulatory changes. The company received a no objection letter from Health Canada, which provides further support for approved probiotic wording and allows Canadian manufacturers using the strain to make additional health claims.
