FAQs

-  WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?

Probiotics are what we call "good" bacteria. They are live microorganisms that promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and are linked to many health benefits from your brains to your belly. Because who doesn't love digestive health! Immune health! Protein utilization! 

 

-  TINY GIANTS IS PLANT YOGURT? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?


Tiny Giants is non-dairy and vegan! Our base is coconuts. Sweet, delicious coconuts.

 

-  WHY DO I NEED TO REFRIGERATE MY TINY GIANTS POUCHES?

Tiny Giants pouches are not heat pasteurized, and therefore they are not shelf stable. The unrefrigerated pouches you see on the shelf are ooooooooold, and we are young and gorgeous and full of life! We use cold blended High Pressure Processing for safety and freshness.

 

-  WHAT IS HPP?

What is HPP, you ask? HPP is High Pressure Processing or High Pressure Pasteurization. It is a method of pasteurization that kills bad bacteria through pressure instead of heat. By utilizing this cold pressure technique we are able to keep all the nutrients and enzymes intact while extending the shelf life.

Each pouch will be marked with an expiration date, so you know exactly how long you have to consume them. Please make sure you keep them refrigerated!

-  WILL IT MAKE MY KID POOP? WILL IT MAKE ME POOP? 

Probiotics provide digestive balance- so if there needs to be poop to achieve balance then, yeah there will be poop! Improving bowel function should provide what we like to call "good poops"- regular, not painful, not weird.
