A FOCUS ON THE INTESTINAL MICROBIOTA
For a few years now, Danone Nutricia Research has been focusing on the intestinal microbiota. The microbiota is truly a fascinating feature of the human body. It plays a role on how you digest certain food, influences your immune system and protects you from certain bacteria.
Our R&D teams use the latest techniques in genomics, cell biology and robotics to work on these topics. They also focus their knowledge on the areas most likely to support their categories amongst consumers.
