Lacto-Bac™ is a proprietary combination of specially selected, waste digesters used to accelerate biodegradation of milk derived wastes.  It is effective on unsaturated fat, oil, milk, starch, protein, and other processing derived waste. The metabolic processes of Lacto-Bac™ produce specific enzymes and biochemicals that break down targeted wastes into harmless byproducts. Lacto-Bac™ comes as a ready-to-use liquid formulation.

Lacto-Bac™ includes proprietary strains of facultative microbes which remain active in aerobic or anaerobic conditions.
