Well Chimps do love sweet things don't they and it is often sweet drinks that are used for training like when they need to show their hand etc, so I am not surprised the Strawberry and Summer Fruit ones are their favourites.
It certainly wont do them any harm and with their genetic make up being so close to ours I can only see it working for them as well, mind you one thing to factor in is that they probably eat more fruit and veg than we do so their digestion may work quicker than ours does and i'm not sure how prone chimps are to tummy infections or inflammation etc but if they are I am sure a probiotic will benefit their gut flora as well and even if the reserch finds no difference in their health at least the chimps love it and it's a healthy treat for them.

Thanks for the links Doogs and the chimp in the photo really seemed to be enjoying it.

Laughing I love it, what a great idea. Onken strawberry is my favourite, I could eat a large full tub everyday it's so delicious.

Great links thanks Doogs.
