THT is a Belgian company with more than 30 years of experience in the production of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) for nutraceutical, cosmetic, and food applications. Since the end of 2021, THT has been part of Puratos, for whom it has been producing sourdough cultures for decades.
THT produces living or heat-inactivated microorganisms as health ingredients to provide industry with solutions from a large LAB catalog. This includes species from the genera, such as Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, Levilactobacillus, Companilactobacillus, Lactiplantibacillus, Lacticaseibacillus, Enterococcus, Streptococcus,…. Pure strains, blended cultures in bulk, or a fully finished private label product are examples of products that THT can supply.
THT can also advise and help to formulate products depending on the targeted market and applications.
Within the Puratos Group, THT routinely produces several strains for bakery starters. Many strains are present in sourdough. Most are natural inhabitants of the digestive tract and are known to offer essential health benefits. Puratos, a world expert in sourdough fermentation, is leading research in the field of postbiotics in collaboration with European universities to identify those bacteria and their components.
Puratos has built the world’s most comprehensive library of sourdough. This library offers a wide range of possibilities to increase the range of well-documented strains we can offer our customers.
