Leucidal® SF Max Powder is an innovative probiotic-based ingredient obtained through the fermentation process of Lactobacillus in a precisely defined growth medium. Lactobacillus, a member of the lactic acid bacteria family, is extensively employed in the production of fermented foods like kimchi and sauerkraut derived from cabbage.

In addition to its acidifying properties that impede the growth of other microorganisms, Lactobacillus exhibits a fascinating characteristic – the synthesis of novel antimicrobial peptides called bacteriocins, boasting an impressive ability to provide broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection. In the course of the manufacturing process, lysozyme is incorporated into the ferment filtrate to induce controlled cell lysis, thereby facilitating the release of antimicrobial peptides for optimized activity.

This scientific advancement showcases the potential of Leucidal® SF Max Powder as an effective, natural antimicrobial agent with promising applications in various fields.


Leucidal® SF Max Powder embodies the “less is more” philosophy, packing a powerful punch in its powdered form. This advanced version of Leucidal® SF Max boasts five times the potency of the original, allowing formulators to save precious time while delivering unmatched efficacy with a heightened sense of confidence. Experience the benefits of Leucidal® SF Max Powder for yourself, and elevate your formulations to a whole new level of natural antimicrobial protection and care. Trust AMT’s innovative solutions to meet the demands of modern consumers while ensuring superior results and customer satisfaction.
