Industry Standardization of the Detection Method for Probiotics Viability

The industry standardization, “the method for testing the in vitro viability of probiotics in edible fungus agents by a simulated digestive system” is officially initiated, led by major contributors such as the China National Research Institute of Food & Fermentation Industries and BY-HEALTH. More than 20 institutions and enterprises, including the Chinese Academy of Inspection and Quarantine, participated in the initiation meeting. This standard aims to establish specific evaluation methods for the tolerance of probiotic agents to gastric and bile acids, define their quality evaluation requirements, and promote the industry’s screening and research on high-quality probiotic strains. This initiative is expected to facilitate the development and innovation of new probiotic products. (Source: xinhuanet)
