Probiotics

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

Probiotics, in accordance with the Act of August 25, 2006 on food safety and nutrition are classified as foods for particular nutritional purposes. Probiotics are microorganisms that, when given in the right dose and form as pharmaceutical preparations or added to food, have a positive effect on the human body by improving the balance of the intestinal ecosystem. The most commonly used probiotics are lactic acid-producing bacteria from the genera Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.

WHY SHOULD PROBIOTIC PREPARATIONS BE TESTED?

Probiotic preparations, in order to ensure a positive effect on the health of the consumer, must contain an appropriate amount of probiotic bacteria in the dose of the product. The probiotic testing assures the producer that the content of viable microorganisms corresponds to the declared number.
