  3. 3. Various Nutrients
  4. 4. FoodState Technology <ul><li>There are many single cell organisms in nature </li></ul><ul><li>Some have played a major role in the well- being of man </li></ul><ul><li>The nutrients are in their biological form for better absoprtion </li></ul>
  5. 5. FoodState Technology <ul><li>SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE (Bakers yeast) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains all the mineral nutrients </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains Vit D precursors </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains all the B-complex vitamins </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>LACTOBACILLUS BULGARICUS (Yoghurt) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains most of mineral nutrients </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains B Vitamins </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains D Metabolites </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Contains Vitamin C </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. FoodState Technology <ul><li>FoodState ® products require a growth medium for minerals & vitamins </li></ul><ul><li>Saccharomyces Cereviscae contains receptor sites for all the minerals and for Vit D3 </li></ul><ul><li>The backbone protein structure of yeast consists of amino acids </li></ul><ul><li>If a Selenium salt is introduced to a growing culture of yeast, the Selenium searches for appropriate receptor sites </li></ul>
  7. 7. FoodState Technology <ul><li>In the case of Selenium, these receptor sites are Methionine and Cysteine – these 2 amino acids contain sulphur </li></ul><ul><li>When the Selenium finds the Methionine & Cysteine sites, it replaces the sulphur group and becomes : </li></ul><ul><li>SELENOMETHIONINE and </li></ul><ul><li>SELENOCYSTEINE </li></ul>
