BiotisTM and Lallemand Health Solutions

Bringing best-in-class prebiotics and probiotics together for optimal gut health.

The best of both worlds

As a leading prebiotics* expert, we’re excited to join forces with Lallemand Health Solutions, a leader in probiotic** manufacturing, to explore the opportunities for innovation in the gut health market.

Gut health is growing in importance to consumers as they recognise the link between digestive health and good overall health.1 But, at the same time, consumers are increasingly dissatisfied with their digestive health.1

By bringing best-in-class prebiotics* and probiotics** together, we are able to help companies create innovative products that address this pressing health issue facing consumers.
