Just checking... Acidophilus supplement

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Ive come to the end of my Whole30 this week although I am not confident that I followed it to the "T" so am planning to do another one in September.

 

However I experienced quite a lot of bloating during the 30 days and not very much weight loss, hence my thought that I need to try again, anyways, it was recommended to me that I take the acidophilus supplements which aid good digestion after I picked up a nasty stomach bug last week and just wanted to check that the ingredients look Whole30 compliant as they seem to help with the bloating..

 

Each Capsule will provide on average a culture of 3.5 billion bacteria (at time of manufature) consisiting of:

 

Lactobacillus Acidophilus Lactooccus Lactis Lactobacillus Rhamnosus Lactobacillus Casei Lactobacillus Plantarum Bifidobacterium Breve Bifidobacterium Bifidum Bifidobacterium Longum Streptoccus Thermophilius

 

Ingredients: Lactobacillus acidophilus; lactococcus lactis; lactobacillus rhamnosus; lactobacillus casei; lactobacillus plantarum; bifidobacterium breve; bifidobacterium bifidum; bifidobacterium longum; streptococcus thermophilus; fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS); Vegetable Cellulose (capsule shell); potato starch; ascorbic acid. *Live viable dehydrated bacteria.

The supplement looks okay. Another approach to getting the probiotics you need is to eat fermented foods that include live cultures like sauerkraut, kimchi, fermented pickles, or kombucha.

Hello... I wanted to purchase this product: Scallion French-Style Soft Cheese .. so I read the ingredients.. but i'm not familiar with one... Ingredients: Cashew nuts, filtered water, onion powder, sea salt, dried scallions, lemon juice, L. Acidophilus.  I was wondering if someone can assist in helping me understand what this ingredient is.. L. Acidophilus.. I did google.. but i'm still a little confused if it's even Whole30 compliant... Thanks in advance for assistance.. I'm only on R1D5 :)

Hi @Chocomommy - please don't post the same general question across multiple threads. I've deleted the other post relating to this. Acidophilus is a probiotic and would be permitted however this cheese-replacement product would not be compliant. It is recreating non-compliant items w/ compliant ingredients which is against the rules. Even if it was permitted, it is very nut-heavy so you would not want to be using any quantity of it on a regular basis.

What was your original intent for the item?
