About DE111® and Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes
DE111 is a genome sequenced and clinically tested strain of Bacillus subtilis, a probiotic spore that supports digestive and immune health. The genome sequencing confirmed the strain contained no plasmids, antibiotic resistant or deleterious genes; multiple human clinical studies support the strain’s benefits for digestive and immune health, including supporting regularity, controlling microbial populations in the gut while optimizing digestion, and improvements in body composition, strength and recovery in athletes. DE111 has the ability to form spores that protect the microbes from harsh conditions until they enter an environment ripe for germination, such as the GI tract. Because of this spore-forming ability, DE111 remains viable under a wide temperature and pH range, making it ideal for use in supplements as well as food and beverages.

Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes, based in Kennesaw, Ga., specializes in developing science-backed solutions that benefit microbiome health, using probiotic, prebiotic and enzyme technology. The company offers a line of unique, clinically supported branded products, including DE111®, PreforPro®, ProHydrolase®, Solarplast® and Glutalytic®. Deerland collaborates with customers to develop innovative and often proprietary solutions in the dietary supplement and food and beverage markets.
