Chris Hansen is the guy on Dateline who traps pederasts, right? What is he doing with probiotics?
Oh, Chr. Hansen. The Danish company Chr. Hansen. The company that proclaims right on its website that nobody knows its name.
Chr. Hansen is a very special kind of company. Virtually unknown outside our specialised field, several hundred million people around the world enjoy our products every day in the foods they eat.
Their specialty includes cultures and enzymes and all the building blocks of industrial food technology.
Their latest sounds good from the prospective of the lactose intolerant and milk allergic and vegan populations.
Probiotics and cultures guaranteed free from dairy ingredients developed for soy yoghurt and other non dairy products.
Now, in an attempt to help foodstuff producers meet a rising consumer demand for soy-based products, Chr. Hansen introduces the popular BB-12® and LA-5® probiotics in dairy free versions.
Free from cholesterol and lactose soy-based foodstuffs have significant health benefits. Moreover, according to Morten Boesen, Marketing Manager, Yoghurt Cultures, Chr. Hansen, adding dairy free ingredients can also improve the soy-based product. “The new dairy free fermentation cultures are optimized for soy-based production and, as a result, they can contribute to better dairy free products,” he explains.
Consumers in Europe, the UK, and possibly elsewhere should be seeing more of these products on store shelves in the near future. Maybe even here in the western hemisphere since they have two U.S. plants in addition to eight in Europe and two in South America.
