Are OptiBac Probiotics organic?
If customers ask please let them know that it is difficult to label probiotics as organic, as the term 'organic' generally refers to plants grown, or animals reared, under strictly organic standards. Generally speaking crops and animals are thought to be more robust and healthier when grown in organic conditions. When we humans eat the organic crops and meat this is thought to be better for our health, as opposed to when we eat non-organic food products. However, whilst the growth and health of the fruits, vegetables, grains and animal products is affected by whether they are grown and reared in organic conditions, the same concept does not apply to microbial cultures like OptiBac Probiotics. Live cultures of bacteria, and S. boulardii, are single celled, therefore much more simple in their structure and function than crops or meat that we eat. Because of this, live cultures aren't thought to be affected by the 'food they eat' - ie. the fermentation medium on which they are grown - whether it is organic or not will not make a difference to the quality of the bacteria.
Other important factors
It might also worth be noting that none of the strains in any of the products in the OptiBac Probiotics range are genetically modified in any way.
