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.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
