Webinar: Digestive-health Market Overview

Getting the goods on gut health — Who knew the plight and might of the American digestive tract would become a common dinner-table topic? It is not surprising when one realizes that 95 million people have recurring digestive problems, and of these, 60 million complain of heartburn, 50 million suffer from irritable-bowel syndrome, and another 20 million deal with painful stomach ulcers, according to the American College of Gastroenterology. Now that consumer awareness about probiotics is at an all-time high, the rest of the digestive-health category is well positioned to introduce products beyond the plop-plop, fizz-fizz pharmaceutical brands.

  • Probiotics must be expertly produced and conscientiously handled, manufactured and packaged.

  • Probiotics must survive well on the shelf, under a variety of conditions.

  • Probiotics must survive exposure to stomach acid and be delivered alive to the gastrointestinal tract.
