|Udo’s Choice Infant Blend Microbiotics contain 6 infant & toddler-specific bacterial strains at an appropriate strength, designed specifically to reflect healthy infant microflora.
The bifidobacteria, including B. infantis, B. bifidum and B. breve, should represent the largest population of beneficial bacteria in babies. Babies pick up these friendly bacteria from their mothers during their passage through a clean and healthy birth canal. Studies show that B. infantis was found in approximately 60% of full-term newborns who were born vaginally and only 9% of babies born by caesarean section. Formula fed babies also have significant differences from breastfed babies in the composition of their gut microflora because the heat used to pasteurize formula kills all bacteria.
The specific strains used in Udo’s Choice Infant Blend Microbiotics have been specially chosen for their value to infant health and have been formulated to the viable count appropriate for infants.
The powder format has been designed to be added to water, formula or other liquid after it has been heated.
Each gram contains:
1.7 billion cells at expiry and 3 billion viable cells per gram at the time of manufacture in a base of maltodextrin, ascorbic acid, and silicon dioxide.
6 Infant specific strains: Lactobacillus casei (HA-108) : 32%, Lactobacillus rhamnosus (HA-111) : 26%, Lactobacillus acidophilus (HA-122) : 21%, Bifidobacterium infantis (HA-116) : 11%, Bifidobacterium bifidum (HA-13) : 5%, Bifidobacterium breve (HA-129) : 5%
