Probiotics are a popular ingredient used in a myriad of products including yogurt, tea and coffee, pet food, dietary supplements and beverages. Potential health benefits of consuming probiotics include gut health and immune system fortification. Many different microorganisms are utilized as probiotics including multiple strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Manufacturers are required to verify the levels of the probiotic ingredient(s) in their products and whether the probiotics survive processing and shelf-life. Q Labs has a team of dedicated scientists who specialize in the recovery and isolation of unique and/or difficult to culture probiotics. We can also design and execute a shelf-life study on your products to verify survival of the probiotics over the life of the product.
