Is the yogurt we eat still alive?



  1. 0 Votes

    Traditional yogurt contains living (or “active”) bacterial cultures, which are consumed with the yogurt. These cultures (Streptococcus thermophilus is the most common) live in the digestive tract after consumption and are believed to have a wide range of health benefits. Most commerical yogurts sold in stores, however, undergo a heating treatment which kills off most of the cultures. To be sure that the yogurt you eat contains living cultures, check the label for “contains active cultures.”
