What makes L. casei Shirota bacteria so special?

More than 85 years ago, our founder, the Japanese scientist, Dr. Minoru Shirota, researched bacteria for several years. He wanted to contribute to the health of all people. The breakthrough finally came in 1930! He managed to select and cultivate a unique strain of lactic acid bacteria that was robust enough to reach the intestines alive. This tribe was therefore named after him, Dr. Shirota!
