Danone products Yoghurt and fermented milk

What is yogurt?

Yogurt forms when milk is fermented by two specific bacterial strains: Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. These micro-organisms produce lactic acid and modify milk’s composition, which gives yogurt a very different texture and aroma than milk. As well, other bacteria can be added to yogurt, including probiotics, because they provide health benefits.
