Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I add it to a smoothie?

    You can add Vega® Probiotics to your smoothie if you desire. Just don’t be concerned if you see bubbles. Because Vega® Probiotics is effervescent, they may change the mouthfeel of your smoothie.

  • Can I mix it with juice/milk?

    We love Vega® Probiotics mixed with ice-cold water. But you’re welcome to try the liquid of your preference. Make it an experiment in your kitchen and let us know what you discover! Note that when mixed with some liquids, Vega® Probiotics may make your drink a little frothy, but maybe that’s what you’re looking for! While strawberry (non-dairy) milk is adored at Vega HQ, no one has fallen for vibrant green Mint Lemonade almond milk.

  • How is bacillus coagulans processed? I thought probiotics need to be refrigerated

    Each serving of Vega® Probiotics contains 2 billion CFUs of dairy-free, spore-forming bacillus coagulans (at end of shelf-life). Bacillus coagulans can survive and thrive in harsh environmental conditions. While other types of probiotic strains can die during transportation, storage or digestion, bacillus coagulans can survive the varying changes in temperature (like sitting on your pantry shelf), and the acidic environment of the stomach, allowing them to enter and flourish in in your gut. Because they are spore-forming, they are able to form hard shells around the bacteria to protect them from harsh, environmental factors like hot temperatures and acidic environments.

  • Why is it fizzy?

    Vega® Probiotics are fizzy (or if you want to be fancy: effervescent) because bubbles offer an appealing mouthfeel that many people find refreshing. The addition of sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and citric acid make it fizzy.

  • How many can I have in a day?

    Even good things should be enjoyed in moderation and we suggest you drink Vega® Probiotics as part of a balanced diet. If you have questions about your specific nutrition needs, it’s best to talk to your dietitian or health care practitioner.

  • Can I give this to my kids?

    We recommend speaking to your pediatrician first to determine if this product is right for your kids.

  • Is it ok to take this while I’m pregnant?

    Great question! We get asked this fairly often by many new moms and parents who want to make sure they’re doing what is best for their babies. Our recommendation is to always check with your doctor or healthcare practitioner on whether or not you personally should use Vega® Probiotics while pregnant or breastfeeding. Your doctor has the full scope of your overall health and wellness goals so they will be a better judge in determining whether this is a time when you should be introducing a new food or supplement into your routine or continuing with your current intake.

About the company

No matter what better means to you, Vega shares the knowledge, nutrition, and inspiration to support your quest to thrive.

Don’t worry—better isn’t an all-or-nothing challenge. Vega’s approach to better is a little bit different: we believe the best long-term changes happen with small, incremental steps, and that better should be sustainable—in all meanings of the word. This is why we’re fans of focusing not on what you should eliminate from your diet, but on what you can add. Start by adding one plant-based meal or dish a day—a smoothie for breakfast, salad for dinner, or soup for lunch—and you’ll realize it’s much easier than you think to start eating whole, plant-based foods.
