The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) has produced a hybrid wine yeast strain using non-GMO techniques to increase flavour and aroma diversity in wine, as well as increasing palate intensity, mouthfeel and fruit concentration. This stable hybrid strain, AWRI 1503, was developed by mating a closely related Saccharomyces kudriavzevii yeast with AWRI 838, which has the same parentage as the efficient, reliable fermenter Maurivin PDM.
Researchers from Inserm (French National Institute of Health and Medical Research) and Danisco have demonstrated that the oral administration of Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM mediates analgesic functions in the gut equivalent to morphine effects. These results, patented by Danisco, suggest that the microbiology of the intestinal tract influences visceral pain perception and opens new perspectives in the treatment of abdominal pain and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with this probiotic strain.
