History of Biosa:

In 1995 Erik Nielsen, Biosa product developer, visited Professor Teuro Higa of Ryukyus University in Okinawa, Japan, where he learned of a complex liquid based on different types of microorganisms. Under the supervision of Professor Higa, that same year Nielsen began a simple form of production of that liquid at his farm in northern Zealand, in Denmark.

Nielsen’s attempts to interest Danish farming researchers in the exciting possibilities of the product met with nothing but resistance. As the Danish University of Agriculture – who would normally be expected to conduct such research – was of the opinion that it was “unscientific” to mix microorganisms, experiments were conducted exclusively through about 800 farmers and gardeners, who used the product in conjunction with their practical production. A few of them were organic farmers, while others owned large, conventional and highly modern farms, where “Eureka!” and “miracle” cures are usually met with skepticism.

Among the farmers doing experiments were pig breeders. Not only do pigs in pens suffer from respiratory problems caused by the ammonium vapours deriving from manure, but pig breeders do as well. The breeders observed the pigs becoming healthier and more energetic after ingesting Erik Nielsen’s mixture, so they started drinking the microorganism liquid themselves.

That observation led Nielsen to begin developing a drink for human consumption. In the spring of 2000 the drink was tested and named Vita Biosa, a new factory was designed, built and equipped to satisfy European regulations, and the microorganisms were approved by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries in 2001 as a nutrient. Because Vita Biosa consists of a complex combination of microorganisms, the Ministry itself supervises production. In Europe Vita Biosa is the only product of its kind granted an official license.
