Our Humble Beginning.
Founded by a fermentation scientist and a pharmacist in 2020, Biotenova is a technology-driven company specialising in the research, development and production of biologic raw materials.
The roots of our company trace back to 2018 when our team recognised the immense public health threat posed by antimicrobial resistance. We sought to harness the power of nature as a solution, igniting our journey to screen hundreds of natural sources to look for novel probiotic strains that have highly effective antimicrobial properties against multidrug resistant pathogens. It was during this exploration that we discovered our proprietary lactobacillus strain and extracted our first postbiotic - Postbiotic K014 or commercially known as Lassica K014.
The Road Less Travelled.
Products using probiotics are gaining consumers' interest around world, yet the sensitive nature of probiotics make it less compatible with many manufacturing processes, particularly the ones that involve heating and drying. On one hand, product owners and manufacturers love how capable probiotics can do to improve our well-being, on the other hand, they have to make sure that probiotics can survive the ambient temperature and gut environments before the microbes can replicate and grow to exert the desired health effects.
At Biotenova, we truly understand theses pain points faced by industry players in the food and beverages, supplements, and cosmetics sectors. We decided to take the less travelled pathway to venture into a relatively new biologic raw material - postbiotic, which is still not so well known to Malaysian and ASEAN markets. We believe that the unique and versatile properties of Lassica K014 allows the market players to reimagine their product formulations. With postbiotics, the brand owners and manufacturers can enjoy the best of both worlds - producing a stable product that works like probiotics and fulfilling the increasing needs of their customers for safe, natural and effective ingredients.
