Morinaga Stronger Body Yogurt

Despite the long and somewhat awkward name, this is an interesting product. Morinaga appears to be rolling most of the functional ingredients it is known for into a single yogurt drink. Sold only by home delivery, something Japanese companies do to help ensure loyalty and regular useage, this one dose a day product includes the following functional ingredients:
1) lactoferrin, an antimicrobial protein found in relatively large quantities in mother's milk
2) BB536, a bifidobacterium that promotes good bacteria in the microbiota
3) MoLac, a Lactobacillus paracasei bacterium which even in it killed state, not live, boosts immune function.

Oddly, by some definitions, this would not count as a probiotic, because (2) is not a Lactobacillus strain and (3) used as a killed bacteria. Other definitions include Bifidobacteria, so this would count under those definitions. 森永 カラダ強くするのむヨーグルト
