The scientists behind Howaru®

Dr. Kaisa Airaksinen, Ph.D.

R&D Manager | Metabolic Health INNOVATOR


I am extremely happy and proud of enabling/witnessing the launch of the first yoghurt-based product in the Finnish market containing a combination of our bifidobacteria (B420™) and dietary fiber (polydextrose). This product was launched in 2020 and has been available for Finnish consumers ever since. The product is truly unique, and I have been involved in developing the science behind it for 10+ years. I took part in the very initial screening tests for the B420™ strain in our lab back in 2007.
