Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Name not given
Posted on: June 12, 2005

Does the non-dairy acidophilus have the same benefits as the dairy product?

Yes. Lactobacillus acidophilus is a friendly bacteria normally found in our digestive systems. Although most acidophilus products are dairy-based, there is no reason why these would be more effective than non dairy sources, which include carrots, soybeans, rice starch and garbanzo beans.
