Probiotics are healthy bacteria that provide health benefits when they are consumed in the right amounts. NZMP probiotics, like SureStart™ BifidoB 019, are developed to meet three criteria; safety, efficacy, and stability.
After more than 25 years of probiotic discovery, our SureStart™ brand is well-known for clinical research that adds to the benefits of specialty infant formula ingredients.
SureStart™ BifidoB 019 is available globally to NZMP customers, who can also apply to use an on-pack SureStart™ mark on their products. This gives them an opportunity to differentiate their products by highlighting specific ingredients that are backed by science. These marks can be used on front and back of pack to indicate that a product contains SureStart™ ingredients.
