Probiotics

It is long known that we are not alone in our own bodies since we cohabit with millions of microorganisms. Some of them are good and some of them are not. But good always wins. That is why the process of making any functional food starts with the isolation of microorganisms of proven probiotic characteristics.

LB Bulgaricum has the vastest collection of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria of human origin in Bulgaria. The specialists working in our Probiotic Laboratory select cultures with proven probiotic qualities on the basis of complex in-vitro and in-vivo methods: surviving in synthetic digestive fluids, antimicrobial activity, antibiotic resistance, adhesive and immunostimulant properties with the help of cell lines. With the help of a phenotype microarray system we obtain the most suitable conditions for manifestation of the sought probiotic property. The Laboratory studies the effect of consumption of products made from selected strains and starter cultures for Bulgarian yoghurt on the faecal microflora and metabolites of volunteers with the clinical studies being conducted together with various hospitals.

Anyway, things are very simple: probiotics help us be healthy.
