Dry bacterial starter look like a powder composed of only bacteria and protective environment to support the bacteria activity.

There are many different strains of lactic acid bacteria in the world. And each of them is unique and has its own peculiarities. But as practice shows, not all strains of a single species of bacteria are equally effective and useful.

Each of the species of bacteria has its feature and benefits for the human body. Getting into the warm milk, these bacteria begin to grow and enter into symbiosis supporting and complementing each other. This symbiosis makes bacterial starter particularly useful. The benefits for the human body mainly depend on the choice of used strains of bacteria and their interaction.

The symbiosis in VIVO starters is achieved due to many years’ experience and work of scientific teams over the choice and selection of the most appropriate strains. Strains used in our starters have been carefully selected from more than 10,000 varieties.
VIVO starters are produced by combining the different species and strains of bacteria produced by the best manufacturers in the world.
