MEAT-FREE, GMO-FREE VEGETABLE PEPTONES
FOR PHARMACEUTICAL PROCESSES
The Oxoid Veggietone range of meat-free peptones and culture media has been certified as free from genetically modified material (GMOs). These highly nutritious alternatives to conventional culture media products are ideal for use in fermentations and other pharmaceutical processes where genetically modified or animal-based products are to be avoided.
Manufactured without using any materials of animal origin whatsoever, Oxoid Veggietones also reduce concerns over the transmission of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and other TSEs.
The growing range of Veggietone peptones available from Oxoid include, Veggietone Soya Peptone (manufactured from soya flour), Vegetable Peptone No. 1 and Vegetable Peptone Broth (manufactured from pea flour). All Veggietones are quality control tested to meet US, British, European and Japanese Pharmacopoeia performance standards, as well as those of the NCCLS.
