One of the first uses of the batch fermentation processes, and a major
user today, is for enzymes in laundry detergent. Have you read yours lately?
Another use which I feel is very important, has reduced the cost for
those needing it and making it even safer to use, is the production of
"INSULIN". Before the development of this method, insulin was extracted from
blood/plasma. Many diabetics contracted HIV in the early 80's from the old
method. I'm not going to tell them to go back to the old way, are you? I also
believe, but not positive, that this method is used to manufacture thyroid
While the process in and of itself is not totally a secret, the
organism used is highly guarded. The same is true in the WINE, CHEESE, and BEER
industries. Those organisms have been developed and selected for that company
brand and they are highly guarded.
In order to keep a competitor from getting their hands on the organism,
all waste products are heat sterilized.
