The new range, marketed for immune defences, stress, and oral health, includes specific strains and formulations for younger consumers, designed in delivery forms and flavors to target children, teenagers, and health conscious parents.
According to the company, the new development comes as both US and Canadian health authorities accept Lallemand’s ProbioKid ingredient’s use for young children. In Canada, the ingredient received a Natural Product Number (NPN), extended to include infants back in May, whereas in the US it is self-affirmed GRAS.
Isabelle Champié, sales and marketing director at Lallemand Health Solutions, will present on “Probiotics for Hearty Kids & Teens” at the IPA Probiotics Resource Center booth at the SupplySide West Show.
She will explore key US data describing child- and teen-specific challenges where probiotics can play a role, such as diet imbalance, gut health, immune health, occasional stress, leaky gut, and oral health.
