Probiotic drops
for infants and young children

Why probiotic drops for infants and young children?

The gut microbiota with various bacteria, among others bifidobacteria, is established in early infancy*. The microbiota plays an important role in the development and function of the gastrointestinal and immune system*.

At Chr. Hansen, we are proud to present our probiotic drops; a product containing our premium probiotic strain named BB-12® in combination with sunflower oil.

Consumer-friendly product

Consumer convenience has been in focus when developing our probiotic drops:

  • Precise dosing
  • No refrigeration needed
  • Neutral flavor


Mothers want the best for their children, and with Chr. Hansen's probiotic drops, they will have a convenient solution on hand which emphasizes safety and efficacy**.

BB-12® - a thoroughly tested strain

Our probiotic strain BB-12® has a long history of use and has been tested in numerous clinical studies from newborn preterm infants to elderly.

A unique and clean formulation

The formulation contains very few ingredients to ensure a clean and simple product. Notably, the drops do not contain the anti-caking agent silicon dioxide (SiO2) - an ingredient that may pose regulatory challenges in dietary supplements in some countries.

Optimal product safety

Legally, probiotic drops are considered a dietary supplement. With the objective to offer our customers an even safer product, we apply much stricter criteria than set by the authorities and have created our own "Infant dietary standard".
