Product Information
NSP : Advanced Probiotic
Growth Enhancer

1. Product Overview

NSP promotes growth of lactic acid bacteria and Bifidus which have good probiotic activities but are not well grown in milk, vegetable, fruit juices. For instance, although L.plantarum is resistant to gastric juice, it's not used in dairy drink products such as yoghurt because of its low growth capability in dairy. However, NSP significantly enhances L.plantarum’s growth capability in milk. Further more, NSP can make non-dairy drinks cultured with 100% of L.plantarum. NSP can enhance the growth capability of L.casei and Bifidus as well.
