Gut microbial species work in teams to perform different functions, suggesting that cultivating certain groups of bacteria is more important than single species, according to an international team of researchers.
This year we brought the IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas to Vancouver, where attendees explored the role of the microbiome in the US military, communicating science to consumers, and more. Here are some highlights:
Medlab Clinical Ltd, an Australian firm with proprietary probiotic strains and a delivery technology for vitamins and other dietary ingredients has announced plans to launch in the US market with a partner.
Japanese dairy giant Morinaga Milk Industry, a probiotic strains supplier, has plans in the upcoming year around to expand the application of its functional proprietary probiotic strain into infant formula, to aid with gut health and immune protection.
