– Probiotics are a type of live culture that when consumed in adequate amounts, provide health benefits such as improved digestive health, immune system support, and protein absorption.
– Probiotics are sometimes referred to as “good”, “friendly”, or “helpful” bacteria. They enter the gut when consumed and interact with microorganisms in your digestive system to create healthy digestion and immunity support.
The Good Culture probiotic MILK uses a patented probiotic called BC30* (Bacillus coagulans GBI- 30, 6086). This unique ingredient is natural and hardy, and is used in a wide range of probiotic-fortified foods and beverages. It can survive both the manufacturing process and the low pH environment of the stomach.
Yes! The safety and efficacy of the BC30 probiotic strain is well-supported by over 25 published research papers. You can read about them in the following website:
The BC30 probiotic strain is also designated, “Generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration)
Our milk contains 1 billion Colony Forming Units (CFUs)* per 12oz serving of the milk. (“Colony Forming Units” are the standard measurement used to quantify probiotic cell counts.) So at least 12 oz of the milk needs to be consumed each day to get the 1 billion CFUs that deliver the health benefits.
Consuming milk in general provides many vitamins and minerals that contribute to good health, including calcium, protein, and vitamins A and D, to name a few. But regarding the health benefits of the probiotic, 12 oz of the Good Culture milk should be consumed per day to get the 1 billion probiotic cultures (CFU’s) that deliver the probiotic health benefits.
You can certainly use the Good Culture probiotic milk in any way you would use regular milk – in coffee or tea, baking and cooking, etc. HOWEVER, to maintain the effectiveness of the probiotic, we do not recommend heating, as the probiotic cultures may die off at temperatures of 158 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
The probiotics used in the Good Culture milk are added after pasteurization, and therefore are not impacted by the pasteurization process.
If properly refrigerated, you should be able to first open the milk until the date stamped on the container, which for the Good Culture probiotic milk will be 60 days from the date it was manufactured. However, once opened, we recommend consuming the milk within 5-7 days, or before the date stamped on the container – whichever comes first.
Yes, Good Culture probiotic milk is lactose-free. The enzyme lactase is added to the milk, which works to break down lactose into two simpler sugars (glucose and galactose) that are easier for the body to digest. The sugar content is the same as regular milk because the glucose and galactose still contribute to the milk’s sugar content. The addition of lactase should not change the milk’s great taste, creamy texture, or nutritional value, although some consumers have noticed that lactose-free milk has a slightly sweeter taste than regular milk.
Different probiotic strains are used in products for a variety of reasons. We use the BC30 strain in Good Culture probiotic milk because of its excellent record of safety and efficacy and its suitability for use in milk.
