Bringing Health to Everyday Life
At Danisco (www.danisco.com), we offer an integrated approach to the development of new foods and dietary supplements
through sound science, application expertise and sense of innovation. Our functional ingredients have documented benefits in the
areas of digestive health, oral health, immune health and weight management.
Take the Strain Out of the Straw: Inside the patented see-through straw concept from Unistraw are numerous beads that are
exclusively coated with HOWARU Premium Probiotics. A filter at each end ensures that the beads stay in the straw and controls the
flow of the beverage, ensuring dissolution of the beads and the optimal release of the probiotic bacteria when drunk through the
straw. Effective, convenient and appealing — innovation has never been easier for manufacturers of long-life beverages.
Sprinkle a Little Health with Litesse: Danisco’s Litesse Fibre Sachet can demonstrate to consumers how they can add the
soluble powder supplement to a beverage or sprinkle it onto their next meal. It’s a convenient and easy way to increase the daily
intake of prebiotic fibre. Virtually tasteless, the clean flavour profile of Litesse Ultra has no significant effect on the taste
and enjoyment of most foods and beverages and, unlike many fibres, it is well tolerated at up to 90g/day.
