Danisco Cultures has launched five versions of the website that
promotes its probiotic cultures in five different languages in
response to what it calls "accelerating global
development" of its licensing concept.
The strength of Danisco Cultures is reflected in the company's
financial report for the first nine months of 2006/7, in which the
division helped drive organic growth for both Bioingredients and
its overarching Ingredients sector.
Danisco has developed a new formulation of probiotics called Howaru
Protect, specifically targeted to reducing cold and 'flu symptoms,
and is exploring its use by the food, supplements and
Oral administration of Lactobacillous acidophilus NCFM has been
seen to have an analgesic effect in the gut similar to that of
morphine - a finding that opens up a new realm of applications for
Danisco's probiotic strain.
Danisco is introducing a new addition to its Howru probiotics line,
which it says was seen in the first of a series of
condition-specific studies to help restore the beneficial bacteria
in the human gut after taking antibiotics.
