Combi Functional Foods of Japan, is heavily promoting a new probiotic, BR-108, which is not truly a probiotic because it consists of a killed Bifidobacterium longum strain. On their website, they promote the fact that Bifidobacterium have the highest recognition among the general public when it comes to probiotic scientific names and suggest use of this strain in a wide variety of products due to its high heat resistance. They also provide some data that shows increased Bifidobacterium and reduced Bacteroides in a clinical trial (no reference).
