In the packaging world, we know how important it is for food and drink companies to use protective pouches that keep products safe from harmful bacteria.
Now, some brands are looking for containers that actually lock bacteria in. It may sound odd; as the last thing a company would want is for consumers to get sick from microorganisms thriving in its products. However, for fermented food companies, certain types of bacteria are the key ingredients in their healthful products. Yogurt, pickles, and even kimchi are thriving in the food industry thanks to probiotics found in these goods. Probiotics are revered for their gut-healthy properties, and new research has uncovered additional benefits that are exciting consumers and food producers alike.
