Korean Government Approves Chr. Hansen Probiotic Health Claim

The Korean Ministry of Food & Drug Safety has approved Chr. Hansen’s health claim application for its probiotic Urex, a dietary supplement that can help maintain a normal vaginal microbiota.

HOERSHOLM, Denmark—The Korean Ministry of Food & Drug Safety has approved Chr. Hansen’s health claim application for its probiotic Urex, a dietary supplement that can help maintain a normal vaginal microbiota.

From now on, Korean customers may use the health claim “Urex can help vaginal health by increasing lactic acid bacteria" on product packaging and in promotion material.

“This is exceptionally good news to our customers in the Korean market," said Lasse Nagell, sales and marketing vice president, human health and nutrition. “Urex is the first and only probiotic product with an approved health claim within vaginal health in Korea, an important growth market in Chr. Hansen’s Asia-Pacific region."

Attendees at this year’s Vitafoods Asia, which takes place in Hong Kong September 3 and4, will have the chance to discuss the Urex dietary supplement and other probiotic offerings with Chr. Hansen’s experts.
