I'm huge fan of their probiotics, but they don't have lacto strains in them. I wasn't sure if there needs to be lacto strains for veggies and if that has to do more with taste than effectiveness in fermentation.

Probably the best way would be to get a dehydrator and make your own using coconut oil. I love the (expensive) multi-coloured ones with plantains and assorted veggies. At least Canola is better than soy .
