I need some help here. My doctor recommended I begin taking an acidophilus supplement. He steered me in the direction of a product called Ultra Dophilus DF which is apparently high quality and claims to be non-dairy. Reading the fine-print, however, it says...
"The Lactobacillus probiotic strain consumes milk-derived nutrients as a food source during one step of the fermentation process. No additional milk-derived nurients were added outside of this fermentation step."
The end product might contain no dairy, but the process certainly does... so I suppose this isn't vegan, right?
Anyway, assuming not, can anyone recommend a vegan acidophilus supplement?
I'm also wondering if this search is futile since the primarily probiotic I should be on is called Lactobacillus acidophilus. Last time I checked, lacto- means milk. 'doh?
