THE STORY BEHIND BACILLUS COAGULANS
Barely 100 years since its discovery, B. coagulans was first isolated in 1915 by B.W. Hammer at the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station after a batch of evaporated milk became coagulated. This strain gained popularity in veterinary circles, and has been used widely in ranching to help pigs, cattle and chickens to thrive. Luckily, humans have discovered and experienced its benefits too! Inulin was first observed in 1804 by Valentin Rose, a German scientist who found a peculiar substance when he boiled the roots of elecampane flower. Much of the inulin in today’s market is harvested from chicory roots.
