Following the taxonomic updates issued by a global team of scientists and published in April 2020, which look more closely at the Lactobacillus genus, a reclassification has been advised for the L. plantarum species. The active ingredients for ‘For your cholesterol’ may therefore also now be referred to as Lactiplantibacillus plantarum subp. plantarum CECT 7527, Lactiplantibacillus plantarum subp. plantarum CECT 7528 and Lactiplantibacillus plantarum subp. plantarum CECT 7529.
