About Us

For Ever Brighter Smiles

With long history in the probiotics bifidobacteria industry, Morinaga Milk possesses strong expertise in the research and development of probiotics bifidobacterial strains that promote human health. Morinaga Milk started research on Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) in the 1960s, inspired by the fact that bifidobacteria are the predominant bacteria residing in the intestines of breastfed infants. Ever since then, Morinaga Milk has been engaged in research on the safety, functional health benefits, and mechanisms of action of Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB), to better understand their role in maintaining human health.

Pioneering in Bifidobacteria Research

Morinaga Milk is some way ahead of the curve, especially when it comes to its expertise in HRB strains. Morinaga Milk has conducted considerable research to elucidate the physiological differences between bifidobacterial species that are naturally present in human gut (HRB) and those that are not (non-HRB).

With its innovative technology, Morinaga Milk has developed a premium line of HRB probiotic strains and other functional ingredients that are highly safe to consume, highly stable, clinically effective and are of high-quality. Each HRB strain possesses an array of benefits that meet your manufacturing needs and fulfill consumer demand.

It is our great pleasure that, through this newly created on-line platform, “Morinaga Probiotics Center”, we are able to share the latest scientific findings about HRB and Morinaga Probiotics with the audiences from around the world who are interested in the subject.
