Probiotics


A growing awareness of the relationship between diet and health has led to an increasing demand for food products and dietary supplements that enhance health as well as provide basic nutrition. Scientific studies have shown that ingestion of specific strains of friendly bacteria—probiotics—enhances several physiological functions, particularly the body’s natural defence system and intestinal well-being.

Probiotics are live micro-organisms which, when administrated in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. While the traditional delivery vehicle for probiotics was fresh dairy products, they are now found in many varieties of food, beverages, dietary supplements and healthcare products.

Most probiotics are either lactobacilli or bifidobacteria. In particular, bifidobacteria constitute a major part of the beneficial microflora naturally present in the intestinal tract of humans and animals. A balanced intestinal microflora is highly important to keeping the body in healthy working order.

DuPont Danisco probiotics include a range of specific probiotic strains marketed under the HOWARU® brand. HOWARU®premium probiotics are health-enhancing bacteria that today are widely used in dairy, dietary supplements and nutritional products. Numerous studies have shown that regular consumption of probiotics can help enhance your immune system and reduce digestive disorders significantly.
