Danisco, Copenhagen, Denmark, has introduced its Howaru Protect, a probiotic blend for milk, in North America and promoted its benefits in children’s diets. Sick days were almost cut in half and antibiotic prescriptions fell by 80% among nursery school children who consumed a daily dose of Danisco probiotics in a clinical study of wintertime respiratory tract infections, according to Danisco.
"As children move toward adolescence, they need to strengthen their bone health and their immune system," said Peggy Steele, global probiotic director at Danisco. "By consuming milk fortified with Howaru Protect, they can do both."
