Laboratory analysis of this lot of Acidophilus Pearls revealed that the product was within the typical color range. However, this lot (52175) has since passed its expiration date, September 2005. It is possible that the additional browning may have occurred over time or with exposure to high temperature or humidity conditions.1
Our Quality Assurance Department has examined reserved samples and found that the color is still within the normal range.2
We have received no further complaints or returns for this lot of product.2
Palm oil in Acidophilus Pearls actually “seals” the probiotic bacteria in the capsule, which protects them from air. Probiotic bacteria are anaerobic, meaning they do not require oxygen to live. In fact, the presence of oxygen can actually injure or kill probiotic bacteria. In addition, the palm oil's ability to seal the bacteria in the capsule eliminates the need for the nutritional supplement to be refrigerated – though they can be kept in the refrigerator if desired.
Why does Probiotic Pearls Acidophilus active cultures contain only 1 billion bacteria? Some other probiotic supplements contain several billion.
