Probiotic vitamins that contain dairy

Hi all,

I just recently purchased this product Now Acidophilus & Bifidus 8 Billion and just realized once I got home that it says "Note for those highly sensitive to milk protein: This product may contain minute amounts of casein." on the label. Is this something I should be concerned about since I am highly allergic to dairy, or are the traces of dairy so little that it most likely won't affect my digestion.

I also saw that it had "Potato Starch" in the ingredients list, I am also trying to stay away from foods high in starch and of course potatoes, so would this be the same case? I am just not sure how much traces of these ingredients there is in this product to make a difference in my health.

I am pretty new to probiotic supplements, so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

The carbs / starch in the tiny pills would be a non issue, but, if you're sensitive to milk and it contains milk, it might not be the best idea. If it was me, I would probably not take it and instead try something else. (I'm currently taking vegan fermented probiotics and starting up some water kefir.)

If you have a true allergy to dairy whether its casein, lactose, or whey, obviously ingesting it could be fatal.
