The firm’s ProbioKid blend contains both prebiotics and probiotics and is said to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora and a healthy immune system.
First launched in 2003, the product is already available in a number of markets around the world, including China, America and Europe. The product comes in a sachet format, which allows consumers to add it directly to food and beverage products.
Rosell-Lallemand said the new flavorless formula addresses “consumers’ demand for a more versatile solution that can be administered to children with any food or drinks”.
ProbioKid contains the probiotic strains Lactobacillus Rosell-52, Bifidocterium Rosell-71, Bifidobacterium Rosell-33 as well as the prebiotic FOS.
A recent company sponsored randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that the product can reduce the relative risk of infectious disease in children during the winter season by 25 percent, said Rosell-Lallemand.
