Want to expand your dairy portfolio and create a children’s functional yogurt?
Parents want to make the right food choices for their children to keep them healthy but today’s unlimited options create confusion and decision making becomes more difficult. When it comes to dairy, offerings targeted specifically at children are limited with few functional products to choose from.
Creating a functional drinking yogurt that includes the world’s best documented probiotic strain Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®) is an opportunity to respond to consumer needs, to differentiate and to capture growth in a category that is ripe for innovation.
A new culture for children’s drinking yogurt
Chr. Hansen offers probiotic solutions within the NU-TRISH® range. NU-TRISH® GY-1 is a new culture that has been developed by combining the LGG® strain with a carefully compounded yogurt culture. The result is a very mild, tasty yogurt drink with a high cell count of live probiotic bacteria that will appeal to young taste buds and health conscious parents. The LGG® strain is the world’s best documented strain described in more than 1100 publications1 and studied in more than 300 clinical studies1.
The large number of scientific publications and clinical studies on Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LGG®) indicate that the probiotic strain may have beneficial effects on gastrointestinal and immune function:
- May reduce respiratory tract challenges3
- May enhance the immune response4
- May reduce crying and fussiness in infants5
- May alleviate symptoms of irritated skin6
