We have the ability to produce IgY in higher purity (from 10% to 95% pure) and greater volume at a lower unit cost than existing manufacturers. Our process is also unique in that it requires no toxic chemicals in the production process which allows the egg yolk to be returned to the food chain.

What is IgY

 

IgY is a hen egg polyclonal antibody. Hen eggs contain more than 450 separate antibodies and when consumed, are not rejected by the human immune system.

 

The scientific community has long known that IgY has the proven ability to modulate immune systems. The G.I. tract is the typical entry point for foreign pathogens. By removing pathogens IgY can alleviate stress on the overall system thereby optimizing the body’s natural defense systems. When consumed orally or topically, IgY can identify and attack foreign pathogens that enter via the gut. Antibodies work on both viral and bacterial infections possibly reducing the need for antibiotics.

 

IgY antibodies have been studied extensively by many government, university and private industry research groups over the years, all concluding the efficacy of IgY in improving overall health. IgY has been used safely in nutraceuticals and vitamins for many years.

 

Our Technology

 

IGY Immune Technologies & Life Sciences has the proprietary technology to isolate and purify egg-based antibodies in commerical quantities.

 

We have the ability to produce IgY in higher purity (from 10% to 95% pure) and greater volume at a lower unit cost than existing manufacturers. Our process is also unique in that it requires no toxic chemicals in the production process which allows the egg yolk to be returned to the food chain.

 

There are a small number of IgY manufacturers in the world.  Most produce either low volume at high levels of purity; or high volume at low purity levels. None produce either specific or non-specific IgY in quantities great enough to satisfy the potential commercial demand across all verticals.

 

High volume IgY products in the marketplace today are typically in the form of powdered egg yolk often added as an ingredients into consumer and commercial products. The drawback of dried egg is unwanted fat content, undesirable odors and taste as well other issues associated with traditional powdered egg formulas.  Our platform is unique in that it “extracts” IgY antibodies from hen egg yolks leaving behind the unwanted fat, odors and taste.

 

The current world supply of commercially available Immunoglobulin Ig is very limited and expensive to produce.  Our unique process is able to produce relatively inexpensive commercial quantities of Ig from chicken egg yolk. The Immunoglobulin produced from egg yolk is considered a natural product and as such, fall under the technical category of a nutraceutical, or a food supplement.
