Subject: Where do these probiotic bacteria come from?
A. As recently as the middle of last century, bacteria found naturally in food ingredients were used to make a fermented food product. For example, the lactic acid bacteria found naturally in milk were used to make cheese. This was known as wild fermentation.
Wile fermentations are no longer used. Today, the probiotic bacteria used in food and natural supplements are harvested via a highly controlled fermentation process. This process results in high numbers of bacteria and ensures quality and purity of the bacteria.
