Biome (ASX: BIO)

Biome is a company that sells probiotics via pharmacies. Biome’s probiotics brand, Activated Probiotics, is different from competitors because of how it delivers the probiotics. Biome freeze dries the bacteria, stabilises it by coating it with a thin layer of plant-derived lipid, then packages it in individually sealed blister backs of aluminum. All this help protect it from temperature changes and preserves the active bacteria all the way until consumption.

In comparison, competitors generally store the pills in a glass jar, or potentially a standard blister pack. Some competitors even require constant refrigeration for the product.
