Explaining Bacteria and Enzymes
How does the bacteria stabilization process work?
Bacteria reproduce by a process called binary fission, one cell divides and becomes two. Some can reproduce at a very rapid rate under proper conditions. If food and moisture are adequate and the temperature is right, certain bacteria can reproduce in as little as twenty minutes. In only eight hours, the original cell will have multiplied to nearly 17 million new bacteria!
What are enzymes?
Enzymes are proteins that are produced naturally by plants, animals, bacteria, fungi and all other living things, and are absolutely necessary for life. They are catalysts that accelerate the rate of chemical reaction without changing themselves. Commercially available enzymes are derived from bacteria and fungi such as Bacillus, Aspergillus and Triochoderma species.
How do enzymes work?
Enzymes work by breaking apart large complex compounds (substrates) into smaller, more readily absorbed nutrients that bacteria can utilize. Only very small quantities of enzymes are needed to change very large quantities of substrate: typically enzyme to substrate ratios can range from 1:1,000 to 1:1,000,000.
Why a powder?
In the past, biological products have come in two forms, liquids and powders. The important thing to remember about biological products is that you are dealing with live organisms. When bacteria eat and reproduce in non-

Why bacteria and enzymes?
Why not bacteria or enzymes only? In the past, biological products have come in two forms; bacteria formulations, enzyme producing bacteria formulations and enzyme only formulations. A crash course in microbiology shows that all bacteria produce their own specific enzymes to aid in the digestion of the food source that Mother Nature created them to eat. By using a "bacteria only" or "enzyme producing bacteria" (remember that ALL bacteria produce enzymes), you are counting on the bacteria to produce their own enzymes to do the job they were bought to do. Unfortunately, since the majority of products are not stabilized, you are asking the ineffective strains to perform a task that they simply cannot handle. By using an enzyme only product, you simply are not "finishing" the job.
