Joint Study Aims to Develop Weight-Control Probiotics

May 4, 2009: 10:09 AM EST
The potential of probiotics to help people maintain their weight may be unlocked in a new joint study by Chr. Hansen and the University of Copenhagen. The study is aimed at developing “scientifically documented probiotic solutions” to be used in foods and nutraceuticals. Focusing on people who are of standard weight or slightly overweight, the study is already attracting interest from the commercial sector. The project “will significantly improve our understanding of the bacterial intestinal flora’s importance in individual weight management,” says Professor Arne Vernon Astrup, MD, DMSc, University of Copenhagen in a press release. Earlier research indicated that some specific derivatives of probiotics have a satiety effect.
