This paper presents the results obtained on the last years in the frame of a National Research Project which has in view the biotechnological studies concerning a probiotic manufacture on media with pollen and honey, using some selected bacterial strains and several essential factors for direct and effective microbial biomass production. A set of chemical and pharmacological analyses was established, in order to substantiate scientifically the valuable content of this type of probiotic preparation, which can be used in order to improve the balance of intestinal microflora. Our final results were subsequently used for an invention demand concerning a lactobacilli biomass having a strictly determined microbiological and chemical composition and used as the main component of a probiotic preparation, which was approved by our National Authorities and which has obtained the Silver Medal and the International Award of the Industrial Institute of Agricultural Engineering Poznan - Poland - “Medal Product” at the International Contest Innova-Eureka, Brussels, 2011.
