Bioprotection  for your fresh dairy products

® is a bioprotective solution that protects dairy products against yeast and mold spoilage.


Bioprotection is a natural way to inhibit spoilage and protect against harmful contamination in food by utilizing the power of good bacteria to fight against the growth of undesirable bacteria.

Chr. Hansen’s bioprotective cultures protect your brand, even from factors outside of your control. And as bioprotection is all natural, you gain a competitive edge while keeping your product label clean.
