Hypernuclei, bound 1 states of hyperons and nucleons, have been suggested to be sensitive probes to the medium properties of the nuclear matter created in heavy-ion collisions. Measurements on the intrinsic properties of hypernuclei, such as their lifetimes and binding energies, can also give constraints to the hyperon-nucleon interaction, which is an essential ingredient in the equation-of-state of high baryon density matter.

In this presentation, recent results on the intrinsic properties of light hypernuclei ($^3_\Lambda$H, $^4_\Lambda$H, and $^4_\Lambda$He), as well as their production yields in heavy-ion collisions will be discussed. These results are compared with model calculations, and the physics implications will be discussed.
