What is Greek Yogurt?
Greek yogurt is a type of yogurt that is celebrated for its very thick and creamy texture. The process for making it includes extra steps that result in its thickness. It has about the same creamy texture as sour cream, and provides and excellent substitute. It has recently become more increasingly available in the US, because the taste and the lack of bitterness make it a wonderful treat.
What are Live and Active Cultures?
Live and Active Cultures are living organisms, or “cultures,” added to milk to make yogurt.
These are often called “starter cultures” because when added to milk, they convert the milk into yogurt during fermentation. This fermentation process is what creates yogurt, with its unique taste and texture. We have three probiotic cultures in our yogurt (L. Acidophilus, Bifidus, and L. Casei), which also help provide our yogurt with its unique taste.
