How do you get probiotics into powdered form and how do they stay alive?

Powdered probiotics are created so that they will stay alive. After the probiotics are made, there are several techniques used to protect them.

  1. The bacteria are freeze-dried in tightly controlled conditions so no outside moisture or oxygen comes into contact.
  2. Then the bacteria are coated with a cryoprotectant before freezing and this protects the cells in harsh temperatures.
  3. The bacteria are stored with vitamin C and prebiotic fibers, which provide a stable medium for bacteria. These two ingredients are also present in Kura.

Continued stability and viability is dependent on limiting the exposure to stimulating environmental conditions like warmth and moisture.
