Agropur launches 4% Allégro Probio, a first on the Canadian light cheese market

Agropur’s Fine Cheese Division has launched Allégro Probio, the very first cheese containing only 4% fat and two probiotic bacteria, Bifidobacterium Lactis BB-12® and Lb rhamnosus GR-1®. In addition to containing these two good bacteria with benefits for the immune and digestive systems, Allégro Probio is ideal for people concerned with both their diet and weight. This new cheese with a taste the whole family will enjoy can be a valuable health ally in daily menu preparation.

Entirely natural, the BB-12®  and GR-1® probiotic bacteria contained in brand new Allégro Probio help stimulate the immune system and protect the body against intestinal infections.

A single 3 cm (30 g) cube of Allégro Probio contains more than a billion good bacteria. Low in fat, Allégro Probio is a great solution for anyone who wants to enjoy the daily benefits of probiotics.

As nutritionist Marthe Côté-Brouillette explains, “Since probiotics remain in the body only a few days, it is suggested they be consumed daily in order to continue enjoying their benefits.”

“It’s easy to include Allégro Probio in your daily diet,” explains Cinzia Cuneo, founder of SOSCuisine. “Add it to a salad or a sandwich, serve it on a skewer with fruit, or simply eat it plain, as a snack. Without even noticing or having to worry about your calorie intake, you’ll add flavor to your meals and gain allies for your health with probiotics!”

In addition, this new cheese bears the Health CheckTM logo—meaning its nutritional content has been verified by the Heart and Stroke Foundation and it meets specific nutritional criteria based on Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating.
