Lab tested, consumer approved.
Novel combinations for next-gen probiotic products.

Want to stand out? When scouring the shelves for a probiotic product, consumers are more likely to pick the bottle featuring a well-known botanical on the label. By combining probiotic strains and botanicals or nutritious ingredients, you’ll excel in a crowded market, strengthen your product offering and boost end-product benefits.
But while combination products are appealing on shelves, they’re a unique challenge to formulate, since pairing probiotics with other ingredients can impact strain stability. The combinations must be strenuously tested to confirm their compatibility. Plus, emerging formats and combinations require in-depth formulation expertise to ensure the claims on the package are valid through the product’s end-of-shelf life.

Let us help. At IFF Health, we’re hard at work testing probiotic strain stability with trending natural products and botanicals, to help you bring novel combination products to market.
Here are just a few of the viable combinations, ready to be added to your next formulation.
