The term probiotic means "for life". The probiotic strains have documented beneficial effects for human health such as the balance of intestinal flora (microbiota). Research is focused on their positive role in immune defenses, inflammatory bowel diseases, digestive disorders, and the fight against pathogenic microorganisms. Our partner DuPont Nutrition & Health offers the FloraFIT® Probiotics and HOWARU® ranges, highly documented premium strains.
Naturally present in foods such as yogurt, fermented and unfermented milk and soya beverages, probiotics are friendly microbes that can maintain a healthy digestive and immune system. Doctors recommend them in supplement form to alleviate abdominal cramping, gas, diarrhea and the impact of antibiotic treatment on the digestive microflora.
Thanks to our research team, led by our Health & Nutrition group in Finland, we have a detailed understanding of how probiotics may improve digestive and immune health.
Our probiotics give you the opportunity to add documented health benefits to your dairy products, beverages, confectionery and frozen desserts. Dietary supplements are another key application area where we have many years of expertise.
