Don't know where you are getting this info.
As far as I know it is a human probiotics,extracted from a human.
During WW1 this guy never got sick from dysentery,or other gut illness, they wondered why.
This particular ecoli was protective.
If it is in raw milk,very dangerous to drink for normal people,let alone people with UC.
1) I was looking into this
and they were also able to detect and isolate the ecoli nissle strain from pigs. It made a strong case that it's also found in other mammal species and was probably transmitted through the feed, which is why I was curious about
it being in raw milk. It seems to be beneficial to both humans and other mammalian species.
As far as where the strain in mutaflor is from, you are right that the source is from the faeces of a german soldier.
Raw Milk - Chris Kresser did an interesting analysis of the risks and benefits in his four part series here
. It turns out that the risk of getting sick from cantaloupes, spinach, seafood is far, far higher. The FDA and CDC have overdramatized the risk. It has more to do with politics and competition than anything.
If the source is legitimate (and preferably Amish), I don't see it as being particularly dangerous. They hand it out in vending machines
in France and there haven't been any documented illnesses from it over there.
I've been drinking it without any ill effects other than the typical casein intolerance. Goat milk is preferable for someone with ulcerative colitis and I plan on fermenting it into kefir to get the real mccoy.
