We tend to think of bacteria as harmful, disease-causing organisms. Over the last 120 years, though, science has uncovered the reality that every living system — from plant to animal, including humans — is covered by trillions of microorganisms, including bacteria, yeast, and fungus. Most of these are either neutral or beneficial. They are also essential.
This means that beneficial microbes have potential applications to help balance not only the health of humans, but of animals, plants and our environments. The biochemicals derived from their fermentation are non-toxic and cost-effective replacements for petroleum-based chemicals, from leather processing to household cleaning.
Probiotic Holdings explores innovative and creative technologies that put these microorganisms and their fermented derivatives to work in agriculture, livestock and animal health, bioremediation, and industrial and chemical processes.
An Agile, Living Technology Platform
With more than 20 years of dedicated research and development through our subsidiary SCD Probiotics, Probiotic Holdings has pioneered an innovative and agile biological technology platform.
We manufacture through a proprietary method of fermentation, during which we combine multiple microbial strains. Grown together, these microbes form a small ecosystem. This approach is unique: most other companies grow separate microbial strains in sterile isolation, only combining them upon packaging.
Our approach not only results in stronger, more resilient microorganisms, it is also a flexible platform for creating new, bio-based products that are:
Safe, non-toxic, and biodegradable
Highly sustainable with minimal environmental impact
Highly tunable for new applications
Cost-effective against competitive products
Shelf-stable with a wide temperature and pH range for better storage and transport
How It Works
Our technology platform doesn’t simply create high-quality probiotics for human consumption. Our method of growth also creates secondary and fermentative derivative products—including uniquely effective biochemicals.
