Probiotics have been traditionally associated with digestion. However, it has been established that the microbiome plays a key role beyond the gut, including cardiovascular, cognitive and metabolic health. DuPont Nutrition & Health is well placed to make the most of the emerging food business opportunities that these new discoveries present and, through close collaboration with customers, its combination of knowledge, experience and passion for innovation delivers unparalleled value.
The benefits of probiotics are strain-dependent, and their effectiveness depends upon not only ensuring viability in a consumer product but also toleration through the digestive tract. Patented technology and state-of-the-art science enable DuPont to provide well-defined, stable strains with supporting clinical evidence to meet regulatory targets and specific customer needs.
DuPont has the widest selection of strains in the industry. Its extensive selection of probiotics is trusted by leading dietary supplement manufacturers around the world, and includes probiotics from the HOWARU and FloraFIT range.
HOWARU premium probiotics include the most clinically documented strains found in scientific literature. DuPont has applied pharmaceutical standards to the clinical studies that support HOWARU's health claims.
FloraFIT is an extensive line of beneficial cultures that includes strains from the Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus genera. These probiotics have demonstrated stability and efficacy in supplement applications.
Using different strains from this large probiotic resource enables DuPont Nutrition & Health to provide more unique, customised formulation possibilities than its industry rivals, as well as proprietary blends.
The company has optimised freeze-dried probiotic stability, taking particular care in strain screening and excipient selection to meet stringent performance standards. All DuPont probiotics are shelf-stable, whether as capsules, tablets, sachets or sticks.
The highest standards of clinical practice, product stabilisation and advanced molecular diagnostics have demonstrated the health benefits of DuPont's probiotics in many parts of the world, including India, the US, New Zealand, China and Taiwan. Evidence-led science is combined with consumer research data from all over the globe to assist in targeting consumers' needs in each market.
A recent example demonstrating this clinical approach is HOWARU Shape from the DuPont Danisco range, a probiotic supplement with probiotic B420 and prebiotic Litesse Ultra - a unique combination with clinically proven results for helping with weight management.
Exclusive to DuPont, HOWARU Shape is changing how the industry helps consumers manage weight naturally. It supports consumers by helping to control body fat mass and waist circumference.
