Chinese dairy giant Yili Group shared its latest research on probiotics during the 14th International Symposium on Probiotics and Health, which was held in Hangzhou, in Zhejiang province on May 22-24.
Experts and researchers from Yili's innovation center participated in the conference and presented the company's latest research on probiotics and their applications.
According to the company's researchers, bifidobacterium lactics and lactobacillus are good for people's health, noting that BL-99 -- a type of bifidobacterum lactics developed by Yili -- can promote the growth of bifidobacterium lactics and lactobacillus and help enhance people's immunity system.
Yili also announced that it will unveil a new probiotic yogurt with BL-99 in the near future.
With the increasing demand for probiotic products, Yili said it had made a great deal of efforts into conducting research and developing new products.
Yili's researchers pointed out that the company will continue to study the benefits of BL-99 and bring it to more consumers across the world.
The symposium was organized by Chinese Institute of Science and Technology and focused on topics, including food safety and quality.
Organizers said that as a gathering for people from the probiotics sector, the symposium was also the earliest Chinese platform for researchers from across the world to exchange their ideas.
