Biogenics

Biogenics - a new class of functional ingredients

The ingredients in Petgenics is classified as biogenic, a functional food derived from Lactic Acid Bacteria. It is different from the live Probiotic products in the way it is manufactured and its composition.

Biogenic ingredients do not function like a traditional Probiotic (by ingesting a live culture). Instead, the POST-fermentation extracts comprises of Lactobacillus metabolites that help invigorate the growth of the indigenous good bacteria in the gut to maintain individual balance.
