Yes, our products are really tasty and our smart cultures,or good bacteria as a lot of people call them, are 100% taste free.
They are more commonly known as probiotics.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines probiotics as "live microorganisms, which, when taken in adequate amounts, offer a health benefits'.
In other words probiotics are 'good’ or ‘friendly’ bacteria.
Yes. With most of the common strains of bacteria found in products like yogurt, fermented milks or Kefir, the bacteria is already alive in the product, feeding off the added sugar that is needed to keep them alive.But the problem is they can’t survive the harsh acids found in the stomach, so nearly all of them perish before they reach the gut.
Yes they do.
Our smart cultures are a unique bacterial strain, Bacillus Coagulans BC30, and are spore forming. The best way to think of them is as you would a plant seed. Our smart cultures have naturally hard shells which protect their genetic material. They remain dormant until they reach their ideal conditions in the gut, where they come alive and help your other good bacteria.All this means is our smart cultures are very good at surviving stomach acid,hot water, freezing, baking and even microwaves!
Our unique smart cultures were subject to rigorous scientific tests, using a simulated gastric environment. Using the same methodology all the other commonly found strains of bacteria in well known dairy brands were tested. The results conclusively showed that our smart cultures are at least 10x more effective than any dairy product, and in many cases many hundreds of times more effective. As the data was independently peer reviewed and published, we use this fact on our packaging to show consumers our unique point of difference.
None at all. They are completely natural and free from any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. They are also GMO free, organic compliant as well as Kosher and Halal certified.
Currently they are coated with minute traces of soy, but from 2019 they will be completely allergen free.
Yes, No dairy, gluten or sugar.
Feel free to have as many serves as you want, you can’t overdose. It is generally accepted that around a half a billion cultures, referred to as colony forming units, a day is adequate for a top up for your digestive system. All our products contain at least this amount per serve.
No. We only suggest usage or cooking instructions for taste purposes. You feel free to make yours the way you know best. Don’t’ worry our smart cultures will always keep doing their thing where it matters most, in the gut!
Yes, everyone can now love their gut with Daily Cultures.
Absolutely, but as with all good advice, if you have any concerns at all please do ask your GP.
Well, it really is enormously complicated, and the science is evolving all the time. But here are some things that we do know. Our bodies are roughly 90% non-human organisms, mostly in the form of bacteria that live in, on and around us. The biggest concentration of them live in the gut. These bacteria have genes and directly impact our whole system, from digestion,immunity and even the way we feel. So you can start to see just how important they really are.
A really good source of further information can be found with our friends at the British Gut Project http://britishgut.org/microbiome/
Here, you can not only find out a lot more, you can also actively participate in some of the most ground-breaking research into the microbiome and gut health.
