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 considered healthier when grown and reared organically and organic produce is thought to be better for our health. However, the same concept does not apply to microbial cultures like OptiBac Probiotics. Live cultures and S. boulardii are single celled and therefore much more simple in their structure and function the fruits, vegetables, grains & meat we consume. Probiotics are not thought to be affected by the fermentation medium on which they are grown (the 'food they eat') and therefore whether it is organic or not will not make any difference to the quality of the bacteria.
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.
