Exposure to high temperatures and/or high humidity accelerates the degradation of the probiotic bacteria. If exposure is too long it will result in a shorter shelf-life of the product, but the product is still safe to use.
Probiotics are good bacteria that are found in food or supplements. The definition is ”Live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” (WHO/FAO, 2002). Important criteria for qualifying as a true probiotic is that health benefits should be proven in clinical trials. Furthermore, a probiotic product must contain the same bacterial strain(s) and the same dose that was used in the clinical trials.
