BioticFoods was born out of a passion for research into the beneficial effects of probiotic bacteria and for promoting a healthy lifestyle and nutrition based solely on natural ingredients.
The know-how used in BioticFoods is based on the many years of experience of its founders. The bacteria strains with probiotic properties used in the products are unique strains. Their uniqueness has been confirmed by patent applications to the Polish Patent Office, European Patent Office and the US Patent Office. BioticFoods cooperates with the Polish Academy of Sciences and Medical Universities in developing products and testing their effectiveness.
The word probiotic comes from the Greek “pro bios” and means “for life”. According to the definition presented by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), probiotics are “live microorganisms when supplemented in the right amount can cause beneficial health effects.”
Probiotic microorganisms include primarily Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, but also many other. However, only selected, strictly defined strains from a given species are characterized by healthy properties confirmed by clinical studies.
Probiotics used in nutrition are intended to help maintain the microbial balance of the digestive tract, both quantitatively and qualitatively. The main roles that probiotic bacteria play include:
Not all lactic acid bacteria used in the production are probiotics, because not all strains cause the same effect in the human body. Probiotic properties of bacteria are characteristics of a particular strain (biotype) of a species. Preferred properties are inherently dependent, ie, appropriate for one selected strain of bacteria.
