“Probiotics are one of the main ingredients in digestive health food products and drinks and some of the leading prebiotic and probiotic yogurt brands include Activia, Yakult, and Chobani.  However, the use of probiotics as a functional ingredient is also spreading into other product categories such as juices. Brands such as Proviva and Good Belly from Sweden and the US, respectively, incorporate probiotics into their juices to promote better digestive health. Good Belly, for instance, is regarded as a dairy-free probiotic drink containing cultures of Lactobacillus plantarum299v. This strain can survive the stomach’s acidic environment and reach the remainder of the intestinal tract intact. Therefore, the increasing demand for probiotic products is expected to drive the Global Digestive Health Food and Drinks market during the forecast period.”
