Up&Go™ Breakfast Yoghurt has the protein, energy and dietary fibre of 2 Weet-Bix and milk. It's high in calcium and fibre, has a low GI and is 98.5% fat free. Up&Go™ Breakfast Yoghurt also contains probiotics and prebiotics.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that benefit us by improving the environment in our intestinal tract and shift the balance towards good bacteria rather than unhealthy bacteria. This all helps to keep our digestive system functioning well.
Probiotics commonly used are lactic acid producers such as lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. This is what is used in Up & Go Breakfast Yoghurt.
A prebiotic is a type of fibre that is not digested in the small intestine. It passes through to the large intestine where it promotes the growth and survival of good bacteria. Inulin is a natural ingredient and can be found in a number of foods such as wheat, onion, bananas, garlic and chicory.
The Inulin in Up & Go Breakfast Yoghurt comes from the chicory plant root.
The combination of probiotics and prebiotic fibre allows them to work synergistically together like a team! Prebiotics are the substrate or food for the good bacteria, thereby selectively promoting good over bad bacteria. While tipping the balance of bacteria to ‘good’, prebiotics and probiotics also produce special substances (like short-chain fatty acids) that ensure the correct pH of the gut as well as making sure the gut cells stay healthy.
The prebiotics and probiotics in Up & Go Breakfast Yoghurt help maintain your digestive wellbeing.
