Americas: DuPont unveils new cultures for fermented foods

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) announced today a new cultures line that contains its premium Howaru probiotics which are specially designed for fermented plant-based products to deliver clinically backed health benefits.

The DuPont Danisco Vege cultures range offers desired taste and texture profiles in non-dairy applications.

New additions to this range – Howaru Dophilus VG, which contains Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM® and Howaru Bifido VG, which contains Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 – have highly documented, positive results in human studies for digestive health and well-being.

Available in single strain form, this range is non-dairy, non-animal, non-allergen, non-GMO, and is suitable for vegan diets.

It also is easy to integrate with existing cultures used in plant-based fermented food and beverage formulations.

DuPont conducted a research study with Global Data Insights to ascertain consumer perception of probiotics.

When asked the impact respondents believe that probiotics have on health and wellness, 46% of the nearly 12,000 respondents in Europe said probiotics had a positive effect, and 65% of respondents in the US responded positively.
