With a 750-year history in cultured beneficial bacteria, Natasha Trenev’s family produced legendary yoghurt prized by the royal family of Yugoslavia. Her family arrived in the United States in the 1950s, when her father founded Continental Culture Specialists. Following graduation from UCLA in 1970, a decade of research led to Natasha’s development of the first revolutionary method of producing an effective and scientifically validated single strain probiotic bacteria product. Her efforts led to the establishment of the entire probiotics category in North America, Australia, England, Holland and Belgium.
As a developmental scientist, Natasha has spent years studying the effects of beneficial bacteria and has written several books on the subject. Today, Natasha’s reference library is the world’s largest private repository on probiotics, referenced and recommended by prominent research scientists and medical schools.
