It Has Abundant Live Active Cultures!

Yogurt is produced by incubating milk by adding to it a small amount of living organisms composed of lactic acid bacteria usually Lactobacillus Bulgaricus & Streptococcus Thermophiluswhich convert pasteurized milk to yogurt during fermentation.

This fermentation process is what creates yogurt, with its unique taste, texture and healthful attributes.

Nowadays,there is a growing body of evidence that probiotics or foods that contain live bacteria are good for the health. Diet is one of the most important factors influencing the complex processes of ageing.

Fermented milk has its place in the dietary prevention of age-related disorders. With regard to nutrition, fermented milk helps to maintain food and water intake, which are often reduced in older people.

Scientists have proven that lactic acid bacteria found in yogurt can pass through the various barriers in the digestive tract and arrive in the intestine in their live state helping restore and maintain the intestinal flora so essential to digestion and good health.

Live acid bacteria also prevent undesirable cultures from forming in the finished product, thereby keeping it pure and fresh.

Yogurt, with live and active cultures may help also decrease symptoms of lactose intolerance.This is why many people whose body has difficulty in making use of lactose are able to consume yogurt with great pleasure.

Encouraging early results suggest that fermented milk has a positive effect on the immune defense system, intestinal transit, muscle mass and cardiovascular disease. Other avenues that merit investigation include colon cancer and cataract.

To be truly effective, it is important that the beneficial bacteria in the yogurt are alive and you consume them regularly in large numbers.

Fresh yogurts containing live and active cultures are always kept refrigerated before consumption and have a relatively short shelf life.

Heat-treated yogurts, on the other hand, do not contain live cultures and have longer shelf lives but the health benefits derived from live cultures are not found in them.

Thus you should beware of consuming heat treated yogurt, be it set or stirred, plain, flavored or mixed with fruits.

Read attentively on the packaging of LABNE (strained yogurt).

If it mentions "heat treated after incubation", most probably it does not contain live cultures.

UHT treated Ayran (yogurt drink) does not contain any live beneficial bacteria in it.
