Using Dannon Yoghurt for Starter

In answer to a question on the SCD listserv,

Seth writes:
I was alerted to the fact that Dannon yoghurt does not list their strains (individually)
anymore. I believe they used to way back when. Instead the ingredients say: CULTURED GRADE A MILK. CONTAINS ACTIVE yoghurt CULTURES INCLUDING L. ACIDOPHILUS.

I have emailed then to verify, but my thinking is that the above does state the cultures. yoghurt cultures are: S. thermophilus and L. bulgaricus. No other strain can be legally called a yoghurt culture. Yoghurt is a product of these two strains by definition. Without them, you do not have yoghurt, just some other fermented milk product - call it what you

PS. Dannon does have some info on there site that also alludes to this, but doesn't come right out and say it.

Originally from the Long Island listserve.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
