Our products in Japan

We’re always developing new ways to make the most of our unique probiotics across a variety of fields including foods and beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. According to Dr. Shirota’s vision, each of them should contribute to the health and happiness of those who use them. 

But what are probiotics?

Probiotics are described as: Live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. For instance, some specific strains of lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria have proved to have beneficial effect on the gut microbiota. These strains can be called "probiotics".
