Biolatte Oy is known for its high-quality products. We do not use inulin, a by-product of the sugar industry, which has been shown to increase the growth of the pathogenic bacteria and to be harmful especially for women. Our lactic acid bacteria products do not contain starches, because they increase moisture, which is detrimental to the preservation of the product. Starches can also cause a serious risk of allergies due to residues of fertilizers or chemicals. In a small volume, such as a capsule, it is impossible to put more than five bacteria in order to maintain the number of bacteria (cfu/g) effective (minimum 1E9 cfu/g). Biolatte Oy tests its products "in vivo" and not only in laboratory "in vitro" conditions. Read more about lactic acid bacteria.
