Good Bacteria in Yogurt - What is it?


Ever wondered how yogurt is made? Yogurt is a product developed from fermentation of many types of milk with lactic acid bacteria. This bacterium is of two types - Lactobacillus Bulgaricus and Streptococcus Thermophilus. Depending on the variety used, the textures and flavors in yogurt are different each time it’s made. The good bacteria are commonly called probiotic, such as the lactic acid bacteria used for fermentation.

One of the most popular yogurts made of good bacteria is the probiotic yogurt that is often referred to as “live” food. This yogurt consists of micro-organism that exists normally in human digestive tract especially the gut. The National Yogurt Association in America requires no less than 100 million bacteria per gram in these products. They also need to have a Live and Active Cultures Seal before the product goes on sale.
