Re: Probiotic yoghurt

Migros or Co-op have brands similar to Actimel... whether they actually do anything beneficial over and above normal low fat yoghurt to justify 3x the price is somewhat debateable imo.

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

All yogurts should technically have probiotics in them, it's what makes them yogurt and not any other variety of dairy product with the same consistency (ie. quark). Yogurt has a 'smallish' quantity of probiotics, so depending on what you are expecting the results to be, you may actually need to take a probiotic supplement. (The amount of probiotics in yogurt can vary, depending on the initial quantity used, how long it was given to populate and how the yogurt was transported...did it get to hot, or too cold, etc.)

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

Richdog, you are right about the health benefits, it is not certain. I just want to try and see if it works.

Thanks

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

You can also buy probiotics in a drink form (Yakult) or take it in the form of a tablet. The tablet form I have found to be the best, but whether it is helpful or not the jury is still out

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

Can anyone recommend a good brand of probiotic yogurt here in Switzerland? There seem to be so many different types but I was told not all of them work as a probiotic.

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

You can actually make (probiotic) yoghurt easily yourself, places like manor sell the kit, though it's not necessary.

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

AnAustralian, I have been looking for Yakult, but neither my local Migros or Coop seem to stock it so assumed it was not available here. Would be great if you could let me know where you have seen it. Thanks

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

Maybe something has changed for 6 years. But I have problem with finding natural yoghurt. I used to eat yogurt with only two ingredients: milk and live and active cultures of Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. But here in Switzerland I see only yoghurt with milk cream... nothing of value. And of course each one is pasteurized and homogenized. Please help me, if you can.

Both Migros and COOP stock probiotic yoghurts.

Re: Probiotic yoghurt

You can find Yakult "shots". It is sold in the Actimel section of Coop. Comes in two flavours (red packaging and green packaging).

Some info from their US website: http://www.yakultusa.com/

What a load of pseudo-scientific psychobabble this article is. When you talked about blood I thought we were going to see some research-based medical facts. Oh dear...

I gave up on any attempt at keeping an open mind when it started warbling on about "alkaline living"
