Actimel’s story begins way back in the 1990s when the first steps to developing a fermented milk based on L. casei Danone were taken, and in 1994 was when it received its first full commercial launch in Belgium. Actimel contains classical yogurt cultures (Lactobacillus bulgaricus, another called Streptococcus thermophilus) and a specific Danone strain! This third rather special strain is called Lactobacillus paracasei ssp. paracasei CNCM I-1518. Or just L. casei Danone for short.

Actimel bottle with information on L. Casei bacteria

Amazingly, this L. casei Danone strain stays alive from the moment it’s poured into the bottle, all the way through its amazing journey to your shopping basket. And it’s still alive by the time they pass through the mouth and wind their way down into the human gut, also called microbiota.

So as you can see, Actimel has come a long way since 1994. Now with 24 delicious flavours in Europe, 7.2 million bottles are drunk every day by people across more than 30 countries.

Join us in raising a little bottle to that.
