I was given Lactic Acid Yeast by Standard Process to take and to give to my baby. Well, I research everything and let me just say I'm not seeing the science between what the product is supposed to do and what science tells me the ingredients are worth.
Ingredients - Corn, whey, malt syrup and yeast (saccharmoyces cerevisiae).
Do you know Sacchoarmoyces Cerevisiae is the same yeast you buy from Fleishmanns for making bread? It is also called Brewer's Yeast.
Yeast mixed with sugars and carbohydrates makes CO2 gas, but I'm not gassy YET. I bake breads, GF these days, but I had to understand the science of bread baking to actually get GF breads to do the same thing as my wheat days.
What is it supposed to do? It is supposed to product Lactic Acid.
|Lactic Acid Yeast is the only acidophilic organism able to ferment any carbohydrate into lactic acid.
It is supposed to be a Probiotic. Acidophilus produces Lactic Acid in the presence of Lactose. A better probiotic Sporogenes produces Lactic Acid and by passes the stomach acids which it's promoter states kills acidophilus before it gets to the intended small intestines.
I'm missing something here. I'm a smart cookie, but I'm missing how Yeast cakes produce Lactic Acid. And if all I need is yeast, why not eat some of my GF bread instead??? I'm not seeing that Yeast is an acidophilic organism, I guess that is what I'm missing. And if yeast is an acidophilic organism, why is yeast protrayed as bad.
I guess I still think Kefir is better than any probiotic pill or something like it, but how much per day? It taste really bad to me.
