Beneficial Bacteria FAQ – CustomBio

Beneficial bacteria – how do they work. Here’s some frequently asked questions about biological products.

What are Beneficial Bacteria?

Beneficial bacteria are live, microscopic organisms that may confer a benefit. While this definition is a bit broad, it does convey the point that beneficial bacteria do something useful.

The benefit conveyed by bacteria can be a number of things. We’ve all heard of probiotics for humans and the benefits they convey for digestive health. This is one example. Our bacterial products can be used as biofertilizers, odor control, grease trap bacteria, and bioremediation to name a few.

What are Biological Products?

Biological products, like the ones manufactured by CustomBio,    contain beneficial bacteria or other beneficial microbes.

These bacteria have been specifically selected because of their enhanced ability to do something useful. They may have enhanced ability to degrade hydrocarbons, or degrade greases, fats, and oils, or they may form synergistic relationships with plant roots.

Our products are generally highly concentrated and the only active ingredient is the microbes themselves.

What is the difference between biological products and enzyme products?

Biological products contain living microorganisms. These bacteria can be thought of as enzyme factories. As their main metabolic function is to produce enzymes. These enzymes then metabolize (break down) compounds into smaller , less complex compounds to be ingested and incorporated into cellular parts or used as energy.

Enzyme products contain only the enzymes. Enzymes cannot reproduce. So, would you rather have a few enzymes or an enzyme production facility? For most applications the answer is obvious. You would rather have the factory.
