frequently asked questions

I have coeliac disease: can I use Pegaso probiotics?

I have an intolerance to lactose and milk: can I use Pegaso probiotics?

I have an intolerance to maize and potatoes: can I use Pegaso probiotics containing maltodextrin from maize or potatoes?
The use of maltodextrins is necessary for the production of probiotics. Maltodextrins are totally purified of their source ingredient, so that no trace of it remains, and the finished product is totally free from sensitising substances.

What is the meaning of the numerical code that appears next to the names of the bacteria used in Pegaso probiotics? 
The alpha-numeric code indicates the strain of bacteria. It’s a kind of ID card that uniquely identifies every ingredient of the product. This makes it possible to give the product unique, defined characteristics, which are reproducible over time. The code is filed with international scientific institutes (such as the Pasteur Institute in Paris, the American Type Culture Collection or the B.C.C.M. Collection in Brussels) for the purpose of certifying and guaranteeing the identity and hence the quality of the strain of bacteria used.
