DuPont Nutrition & Health Introduces a Robust Combination of Strains for Fermented Milk in South America

A perfect combination of different strains to facilitate and optimize the production process.

The DuPont Nutrition & Health (N&H) team in South America introduces DuPontTM Danisco® Lactobacillus Plus, which is the balanced combination of robust strains of L. paracasei, helveticus and acidophilus to produce fermented milk. The robust strains promote an excellent balance between flavor and acidity, in addition to optimizing the production process with a rapid time of fermentation.

This culture’s combination was developed to facilitate and optimize the process, as it reduces the quantity of items in stock and reduces the risk of contamination, maintaining the high-quality standard of the fermented milk and guaranteeing the quantity of Lactobacillus alive. What differentiates Lactobacullus Plus solution is the maintenance of a balanced taste during product´s shelf life.

"The taste of fermented milk with Lactobacillus Plus is excellent. It is a product with a superior performance to those currently found in the market, offering great practicality during manipulation with a fast fermentation and low post acidification", said Marcellus Carvalho, Dairy Technical Specialist of DuPont N&H.

Another great advantage of this solution is that it is produced in a freeze-dried format, cooperating with the environment, since it does not require refrigeration during transportation, reducing the logistic cost. In addition, it enables a lower energy expenditure throughout the value chain, including in the storage of crops.

"This launch is yet another sustainable innovation within our range of dairy cultures, associated with the constant technical service of our dairy experts who support our customers in the development of new products," said Adriana Apuzzo, Manager of the Dairy Cultures at DuPont N&H.
