The stability and viability of probiotics you use in your pet food is a key factor in your decision-making. If probiotic ingredients deteriorate or become unstable before or during the shelf life of your product, you cannot confidently support CFU label guarantees and make probiotic claims proudly.

Probiotic stability is a complex, multi-stage journey, encompassing everything from genetic stability, particularly regarding antimicrobial resistance (AMR), to the endurance of probiotics through various phases like fermentation, formulation, application, and even extending to the shelf life of the final pet product. Crucially, this stability extends to the point where the probiotics successfully proliferate and function in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of dogs and cats.

We tested the application of our products as well as their stability for 18 months in dry kibble and achieved strong results. We know every pet product is unique, so we are now inviting you to test our probiotics in your product.

Many factors can affect the health of live probiotics over time. And we help you consider them all to achieve excellence in your pet probiotics play.
