Our doctor prescribed probiotic powder (Lactobac) and I forgot to ask him how to get it into DS. Can I mix it in juice or would that kill the organisms in it?

Hey, a dr who prescribes probiotics? Sounds open minded...Is he/she good?
No problem to add to food, but not to anything hot as they are killed by high temperatures, so you wouldn't put it in a soup for eg! I stir the powder in with a small quantity of milk for my DS. And sometimes I sprinkle it on top of his porridge or cereal. It is not strong tasting so we haven't had an problems.
As for adding to juice, as far as I know it's fine too.

oh, now that I think about it, I've heard occasional talk about probiotics and questions around how well they can "survive stomach acid" so why not just add it to something non-acidic to be on the safe side - stir in with yoghurt, milk, food etc rather than juice?

Thanks for your replies - I contacted the company of the probiotic and they said definitely not to mix it with very acidic juices such as orange. They said mixing it with watered down apple juice should be ok.
Sillarn - yes the paediatrician we take our son to is very open minded and practices biomedicine. He is very good.
