An upcoming webinar will explore the taxonomic changes to the genus Lactobacillus and the implications for brands, from labeling to consumer education.

The FREE webinar, Lactobacillus: What Brands Need to Know About the Taxonomic Changes​, will take place on December 11 at 12:30pm Eastern/ 9:30am Pacific.

Big changes are coming to how many of the most popular – and commercially important – probiotics are classified. The name Lactobacillus​ is instantly recognizable to many consumers and healthcare professionals, but the genus is extremely diverse and includes 251 species. Scientists have been working for years on this reclassification, and we’re close to a final list being published.

These changes will have significant impacts on many areas, from labeling to scientific publications and IP.

In this webinar, NutraIngredients-USA has assembled a panel of experts to talk about the scientific rationale, the commercial and legal implications, and what brands need to know about the impending changes.  

Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask a burning question about this topic in advance by submitting the question when they register. For more information and to register, please click HERE​.
