Probiotic research and development
Essum AB, founded 1989 in Umeå has done research, development, clinical studies and production of probiotics for Functional Foods, Food Supplements, Medical Devices and Pharmaceuticals. Dairy probiotics used by Norrmejerier under the Verum™ brand is one of several good businesses coming out from the Northern part of Sweden. Another product combining probiotics and berries under the brand “Norrländsk Bärkraft” is marketed and sold by Immunbutiken AB in Skellefteå, this is also a development from the creative North.
Essum manufactures and markets probiotic bacteria that are distributed to companies that produce pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements and food. Probiotics are defined as living microorganisms, which upon digestion in certain numbers exert health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Essum focus on the development of functional food products for the market on one hand, and on pre-clinical and clinical research to document the effects of functional foods, on the other.
