Featured Ingredient: Tyndallised Bacteria

Tyndallised bacteria are also known as paraprobiotics (ghost probiotics). They are defined as inactivated (non-viable) microbial cells, which, when administered in sufficient amounts, can offer health benefits to the animal that are similar to their probiotic counterparts.


The use of paraprobiotics has been studied widely in many species and has been found to enhance animal health. Their use supports digestive health by reducing inflammation, thereby maintaining a healthy gut barrier and excluding the bad bacteria that can lead to disease.


Lactobacilli also have anti-allergic properties due to their ability to modulate immune homeostasis as well as maintaining normal intestinal barrier function.


Due to their many proven applications within digestive health and immunity — affecting faecal quality, and stress and well-being — the use of paraprobiotics within pet food is promising: especially when the balance of healthy bacteria within the gut is altered during times of stress.


Paraprobiotics have an advantage over their probiotic counterparts as they are easier to store and use in the manufacturing process. They have very similar benefits to their counterparts, but without the occasional risk of overstimulating the immune system seen in probiotics.


To summarise, tyndallised bacteria are paraprobiotics that support digestive health and immunity. They help to reduce intestinal inflammation and improve well-being and stool quality.
