APS BioGroup uses flash pasteurization, batch pasteurization, and low-heat indirect steam drying to preserve the efficacy and bioactivity of the colostrum.
Our state-of-the-art colostrum processing facility has a special High Temperature Short Time (HTST) pasteurizer, which meets all USDA Pasteurization Milk Ordinance (PMO) requirements. Using flash pasteurization (minimum 161°F or 72°C for minimum 15 seconds) potentially harmful pathogens are removed, while immunoglobulins, peptides and other biologically important proteins retain their bioactivity.
Our colostrum is spray dried using indirect steam and with low pressure and temperatures (less than 145°F or 63°C) to produce a high quality powder while protecting the colostral proteins.
In-House Proprietary Agglomeration and Instantizing Techniques
We apply both agglomeration and instantizing technologies to our colostrum powders. As a result, our colostrum powders are the most soluble and flowable available. This processing advantage enables customers to more easily use colostrum in applications such as sachets, capsules, tablets, cosmetics and drink mixes.
Thorough Quality Control Procedures
cGMP (certified Good Manufacturing Practices) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Procedures) procedures are being followed throughout the entire colostrum production process.
APS BioGroup laboratory is registered with the United States federal government as a clinical laboratory.
Each colostrum product batch is thoroughly analyzed prior to shipment to assure its quality, efficacy and safety. Analytical chemistry, microbiological and other necessary testing is performed using AOAC or other approved testing methods. We test and certify the immunoglobulin G (IgG) content of our colostrum powders using one of five in-house High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) units.
