Nebraska Cultures Introduced ProDURA™, an Extremely Resilient Probiotic Strain at SupplySide West
New strain of Bacillus coagulans continues Dr. Shahani’s legacy of producing effective, stable and potent probiotics
Marketed exclusively by Nebraska Cultures, ProDURA™ is an unusual probiotic strain since it is a spore forming bacterium with a naturally protective coating that stays dormant until it meets the perfect conditions of heat, pH, and moisture found in the large intestine.
“We are very excited to introduce this remarkably resilient probiotic to manufacturers who are looking for a strain blend with unsurpassed stability,” explained Michael Shahani, director of operations for Nebraska Cultures. “Unlike most cultures available to manufacturers, ProDURA™ can survive processing, shipping, storage, and importantly, the digestive tract.”
Other features of ProDURA™ include:
Inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli.
Produces the enzyme lactase, which is known to reduce the incidence of lactose intolerance.
Promotes weight gain and reduces the incidence of infections in piglets.
In human clinical studies, ProDURA™ has been shown to lower total cholesterol and LDL levels, raise HDL levels in the blood, and to reduce the incidence of diarrhea and bacterial vaginosis (BV).
ProDURA™ is available exclusively from Nebraska Cultures, Inc. For more information, including scientific studies, please call (925) 935-0922 or visit http://www.nebraskacultures.com/

About Nebraska Cultures:
Since 1981, Nebraska Cultures has supplied the natural products industry with the finest probiotic cultures – the Dr. Shahani's® brand – specializing in the DDS-1 strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus. Nebraska Cultures remains at the forefront of the probiotic industry by performing new research, increasing consumer awareness, growing its business overseas and expanding into functional foods.
As one of the most influential probiotics scientists to date, Dr. Khem Shahani began his landmark research on Lactobacillus acidophilus at the University of Nebraska in the late 1950s. There he discovered a particular strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus that showed superior growth, stability and nutritional viability. Dr. Shahani would later name the strain DDS-1 for the Department of Dairy Science Number One strain and spend the rest of his career unlocking its potentials for improving overall health.
