Bifodobacterium breve was originally isolated from the feces of human infants.  Bifodobacterium breve is commonly used in probiotics. The Latin root bifidus meaning to fork, and breve means short. Typically the bifidobacterium has a forked shaped.  It is from the genus of Bifidobacterium and the phylum of Actinobacteria.

A number of studies have attempted to verify its health benefits. One, in particular, has shown that when administered in combination with other probiotics that it can be helpful for ulcerative colitis.
