S. thermophilus, in combination with L. bulgaricus, is used to produce yogurt. This organism is known to be efficient in breaking down lactose, a desirable trait for those who are lactose-intolerant.
Our cultures are probiotic!
Probiotics are live microorganisms thought to be healthy for people. According to the currently adopted definition by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), probiotics are:
"Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host"
According to the Harvard Medical School:
"Clinical studies have established that probiotic therapy can help treat several gastrointestinal ills, delay the development of allergies in children"
We offer fresh yogurt made from Skim, Reduced Fat and Organic Whole Milk. The Skim and Reduced Fat milk come from Hudson Valley Fresh, 100% real milk produced from cows not treated with rBST. All of the milk in our yogurt is pasteurized twice.
