ME strains

Probiotics are defined as « live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host », WHO, 2007. In other words, their activity and efficacy depend on their viability in the gastrointestinal tract of the host.

Probiotics need to:

  • Contain live micro-organism
  • Resist storage conditions
  • Remain alive in the gut

Probiotics Need Protection

From the manufacturer’s plant to the consumer’s gut, probiotics have to deal with many stresses and production conditions (temperature, pressure), storage conditions and the digestive tract (gastric acidity and bile).

To ensure optimal probiotics survival and efficacy, we apply our Process-Protect™ technology.


To enhance the strains intrinsic resistance (gastric acidity, heat shock and compression), our proprietary industrial manufacturing conditions are adapted to each strain.

We also apply our patented probiotic microencapsulation technology as a second level of protection to our L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 ME, L. helveticus Rosell-52 ME and B.longum Rosell-175 ME.

3 flagship stains documented for their health benefits:

  • Gut health
  • Brain-gut axis
  • Natural Defenses

They can be perfectly added to confectionery applications: chocolate, snack bars, protein bars, powders.

We can guide you in your project.

Depending on the market and product, we can share our experience and guide you to the best probiotics for your applications. Contact us today and let’s add a pinch of healthy™ to your product.
