Healthy INSIDER Podcast 40: Probiotics Oral Health, Foods & Beverages


Probiotic research has gone beyond digestion, and delivery forms have gone beyond yogurt. Recent research on specific probiotic strains have shown their ability to address oral health, and manufacturers have successfully used spore-forming probiotics to incorporate healthy bacteria into food products.

In this special two-interview podcast, Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief of INSIDER, talks with Lucie Lingrand, project manager, Lallemand Health Solutions, about:

  • The role “bad” bacteria play in oral health conditions, such as gingivitis and halitosis
  • How probiotics compete with these bad bacteria to benefit oral health
  • The research on probiotics’ effects to combat tooth decay and gingivitis
Almendarez then speaks with Anurag Pande, Ph.D., vice president, scientific affairs, Sabinsa, about:
  • The difference between spore-forming probiotics and non-spore-forming probiotics
  • Research that shows spore-forming bacteria germinate and survive in the digestive tract
  • The safety and health effects of the spore-forming Bacillus coagulans

Lingrand and Pande are presenting at Probiotics Marketplace, a day-and-a-half event that provides insights on probiotic science and formulation considerations, as well as issues to consider for an effective go-to-market strategy on April 18 and 19 as part of Ingredient Marketplace in Orlando. Probiotics Marketplace is produced with the International Probiotics Association (IPA), the premier underwriter is Nutraceutix, and additional support is provided by BIO-CAT, Sabinsa, Unique Biotech and Viva5.
