The cultures we sell are mother cultures. You consume the fermented medium the culture has been put into. We ensure our cultures are grown in mediums with a PH less than 4.6 to ensure any harmful bacteria are not present.

If you notice any signs of mould, we ask that you always discard the medium immediately. Please contact us if you have any worries or concerns. In our experience mould is rare. It is usually a result of a neglected culture. If you care for your cultures in the correct way and keep them active as per our instructions, the risk of mould is very minimal.
