FLORYTEC’s natural probiotic-rich ingredient, the fruit of demanding know-how.


With nearly 60 years of research and development, and the filing of patents by Mr. Joseph-Louis LEGARDA, the company’s founding father, probiotics are a well-known specialty for the SORBIAL laboratory. Through its years of experience in growing micro-organisms, the SORBIAL laboratory has developed a manufacturing process based on the concept of bacterial symbiosis. This patented co-culture method, which is particularly well-suited to probiotic-based food supplements, has given rise to the FLORYTEC® ingredient.

Why is the concept of bacterial symbiosis important in the field of probiotic food supplements?


Probiotic food supplements made up of several micro-organisms are used to combine bacterial strains grown independently of each other by simply assembling them. This means combining them at the very end of the manufacturing process. While this method ensures high production yields, it does not necessarily contribute to the development of active metabolites produced thanks to the symbiotic presence of crops of interest. Motivated by these observations, SORBIAL laboratory has taken this co-culture concept further by developing its Florytec® ingredient. Since Joseph-Louis LEGARDA’s early work, which focused on the concept of bacterial symbiosis, we have developed an alternative cultivation process using a natural approach in parallel with our research partnership with INRAe.

Natural probiotics and co-culture development

Our carefully selected lactobacillus strains are cultivated together in synergy, in the presence of natural ingredients favorable to their development and well-known to all: French milk.
This co-culture using a unique lacto-fermentation process has given rise to the Florytec® ingredient, an innovative symbiosis naturally combining our lactic strains of interest and their natural metabolites in a unique fermented milk complex.

Why include FLORYTEC® in our dietary supplements?

By creating synergy in the cultivation of our strains, we promote the production of a range of natural active ingredients by our lactic acid bacteria, known as metabolites.
It is this combination that makes FLORYTEC unique and incomparable to other probiotic food supplements.
