Qiara Infant

A probiotic isolated from breast milk for your baby

Qiara Infant contains the same single probiotic strain as Qiara Pregnancy & Breastfeeding in a convenient Infant dose sachet for babies who are no longer breastfed (suitable for infants 1-24 months of age). 

  • Qiara Infant may assist in maintaining the levels of normal healthy flora or friendly bacteria that may have been disrupted after or during a course of antibiotics.
  • Qiara Infant may help maintain a healthy digestive microflora system

Qiara Infant comes in a cost effective dose formulated for your baby.

Each dose is individually sealed in protective sachets to maximise the number of living microorganisms consumed.



Qiara for Your Baby

Breastmilk is your baby's best source of essential nutrients and specific probiotic bacterial strains essential for healthy digestion and immune system development. It is beneficial to provide your baby with breastmilk and it's benefits for as long as possible.

Supplementation of your baby's diet with Qiara, particularly during and post weaning, can help build and maintain your child's microflora system.


Add contents of one sachet to your infant's prepared bottle or cup and stir, immediately prior to feeding once daily. For infants 1-4 months, use half a sachet.  Open sachet can be used for 2 days from opening if stored at 2-8C (refrigerate, do not freeze).  Probiotic powder may be added to water, milk or soft food such as yoghurt.

The Qiara Guarantee

Isolated from breastmilk

Lactobacillus Fermentum CECT 5716 is a probiotic isolated from breast milk which:

So it's safe for both mother and baby and may play a critical role in preventing local infection in breast tissue and establishing a healthy microbiome in the infant.

Single strain

The difference between promises and results is research. It is important to select the right probiotic strain researched for and suited to your needs.

Many probiotic companies provide broad spectrum probiotics containing multiple strains in a single dose. However, clinical trials for probiotics are usually conducted with a single strain rather than with multiple strains, and it is unclear how multiple strains in a single dose may interact with or inhibit each other.  That is why Qiara Pregnancy & Breastfeeding contains 3 billion microorganisms of Lactobacillus Fermentum CECT 5716, the same dosage of exactly the same single strain used in clinical trials.
