A biological product is a formulation that includes one or more living beneficial microorganisms and is used for a wide variety of environmentally beneficial tasks such as waste treatment, cleaning, and odor control.
Microorganisms (such as bacteria or fungi) are naturally occurring, are ubiquitous (found everywhere) and are necessary for our environment to function. At a very fundamental level, these microorganisms are harmless to humans, animals, and the environment. Clearly, there are several pathogenic bacteria that present a public health risk (e.g. MRSA, E. coli, Salmonella, etc.) but, it’s easy to forget that most microorganisms are beneficial and are necessary for survival. It is estimated that, there are between 500 and 1,000 different species of bacteria in and on your body, each hard at work digesting your breakfast, producing vitamins required to keep you healthy, and boosting your immune system to help stave off illness. This is the definition of a symbiotic relationship; beneficial microorganisms thrive off the organics that our bodies produce as waste by-products and in return provide vital vitamins and nutrients along with performing necessary functions that keep all of us happy and healthy.
Beyond our own bodies, beneficial microorganisms are also hard at work maintaining the critical cycles of life in nature. They break down organic materials (e.g. compost pile), help plants grow and thrive, and some even degrade toxic chemicals. As we have come to understand the great power of microorganisms, scientists have discovered ways to harness the talents of these beneficial microorganisms to do things like ferment wine, break down man-made waste, and enhance the effectiveness of cleaning and odor control products. The inclusion of beneficial microorganisms in many of the food and other consumer products which we use on a daily basis has been growing significantly. An excellent example of this is the use of microorganisms in foods such as yogurt, salami, cheese, and many others.
Biological products that contain beneficial microorganisms are safe for humans, animals, and the environment.
