So, what is bulgaricus?

Bulgaricus is a type of bacteria used to ferment dairy products such as yogurt, kefir, and cheese. This probiotic strain is named after the Bulgarian scientist who discovered it, and it is known for its ability to survive in acidic environments. When added to milk, bulgaricus feeds on lactose and converts it into lactic acid, giving yogurt its tangy flavor and thick texture. In addition to its contribution to the taste and texture of fermented foods, bulgaricus also offers health benefits such as aiding digestion and boosting the immune system. Its unique properties make bulgaricus a popular ingredient in the production of dairy products worldwide.
