Exactly Ed my thoughts too. Soil that is 100% sterilised is in effect dead and you can't grown anything in dead soil. Plants need bacteria and fungi in soil to break down minerals into a form they can consume.
Though I suspect they probably do irradiate the Loam, by the time it's transported...

You can easily make it unsterilised of course. :-)

Have you yet heard about my site?
It's a free aquarium web site with a major difference.

John Innes number 3 is what Diana Walstad recommends.
