Lactobacillus : Market Outlook

The lactobacillus is a wide market with probiotic being the major sector for the market growth and also the growth of lactobacillus market is driven by health benefits associated with probiotic-fortified foods. FloraFIT® Probiotics by DuPont are trusted by many of the world’s leading manufacturers of dietary supplements and nutritionals. Some benefits are improvement of the intestinal balance (microbiota) and enhancement of immune response.

LA-5® is a registered trademark of Chr. Hansen A/S used in food and dietary supplements, and described in more than 150 scientific publications and tested in more than 60 clinical studies. Lactobacillus (LA-5®) is a well-characterized and well-documented probiotic strain.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus CRL1505 stimulates an innate, adaptive immune response in the intestine and respiratory tract, producing a protective effect and naturally improving the immune systems of children and adults, thereby reducing antibiotic intake.

The studies have shown that the daily intake of Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™ (HOWARU® Protect Senior, from DuPont Nutrition & Health) by healthy, elderly adults showed B. lactis HN019™ enhanced cellular immune activity.

With one in four U.S. consumers reporting digestive health issues on an “almost daily” basis, gut health has become a top health concern. Demand for digestive-related products in North America is growing, and food and beverage producers are responding by aggressively launching products that offer positive digestive health benefits. The U.S. market for digestive products grew 12% between 2012 and 2017.

Market Drivers

Due to rise in geriatric population and rise in inclination to fortify food products with natural additives is making manufacturers introduce new hybrid probiotics that have low side effects.  They are widely utilized to prepare supplements to treat digestive disorders such as constipation and acid reflux which encouraging the product landscape. Probiotics help in quick digestion without aggravating the production of gastric acids and bile thereby increasing digestive efficacy which may foster product demand.

Lactobacillus growth with inexpensive health foods, such as fruit juices, cultured dairy drinks, and yoghurt has contributed to a significant market size. The most commonly used bacteria include Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli, which are found in various dairy products, including yogurt. In the dairy category, yogurt is the most popular option for consumption of lactobacillus. In June 2018, Chr. Hansen expanded its product strain library for the development of next-generation probiotics.
