Dairy Probiotic Efficacy: Why Strain Matters
Thinking of probiotics, we tend to think first of genus and species, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, for example.
But genus and species alone cannot be enough when selecting an effective probiotic. That’s where strain comes in. A strain is an individual micro-organism with potentially trillions upon trillions of clonal copies.
Did you know?
• There is 6% genetic diversity between chimpanzees and humans — both primates
• There is 10% genetic diversity between mice and humans — both mammals
• Within a single species of bacteria — Bacillus subtilis — there is 18% genetic diversity
That is why… Strain Matters!
With more than 40,000 microbial strains, Chr. Hansen owns the broadest and most effective range of cultures for inclusion in animal feed products, including all types of dairy feeds.
This range enables selection of the best individual strains and formulation of the best combination products to meet health challenges in dairy operations.
