Can I eat this Danone yogurt if I am lactose intolerant?

Bacterial cultures convert some of the lactose into lactic acid: generally, people with lactose intolerance tolerate yogurt better than milk because it moves more slowly through the digestive system. We suggest that you try a small amount at a time and consult a nutritionist who will be able to advise you!

What bacterial cultures are found in this Danone yogurt?

Yogurt is a milk fermented by the development of two lactic bacterial cultures: Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. These bacteria must be alive in the finished product and this is what gives yogurt its unique properties!
