So, what is live yoghurt culture?

Live yoghurt culture is a mixture of live bacteria strains that are added to milk to ferment and create yoghurt. These cultures are made up of probiotics, including Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, which are essential for producing the characteristic tangy flavor and creamy texture of yoghurt. Consuming live yoghurt culture has been shown to promote digestive health and boost the immune system. In addition, it is a rich source of calcium, protein, and other important nutrients. Incorporating live yoghurt culture into your diet is an excellent way to support overall health and wellness.
