BioticFoods was founded from a passion for research into the beneficial effects of bacteria with probiotic properties and to promote a healthy lifestyle and nutrition based solely on natural ingredients. Firma BioticFoods powstała z pasji do badań nad dobroczynnym działaniem bakterii o właściwościach probiotycznych oraz do promowania zdrowego trybu życia i odżywiania opartego wyłącznie na naturalnych składnikach.
The know-how used at BioticFoods is based on many years of experience of its founders. The strains of bacteria with probiotic properties used in the products are unique strains. Uniqueness was 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 the development of products and their effectiveness research.
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.
