Activia Probiotic Yogurt – FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About Activia Probiotic Yogurt

Q: Don’t all yogurts have probiotics?

A:  All yogurts contain Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, but not all yogurts contain probiotics.  Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus are bacteria used to ferment milk to create unique dairy products.  On the other hand, probiotics are live friendly bacteria that have been scientifically studied and when consumed in sufficient amounts provide a health benefit beyond basic nutrition. Activia yogurt with Bifidobacterium lactis DN-173 010/CNCM I-2494, our exclusive probiotic culture, has been studied and shown to provide a specific digestive health benefit. Activia may help reduce the frequency of minor digestive discomfort.*

Q:  Why does Activia need "billions of its exclusive probiotic?" 

A: Since Activia was launched in 2006 it has contained billions of our exclusive probiotic in every cup. Activia yogurt's exclusive probiotic culture was specifically selected because of its ability to survive passage through the digestive system and reach the large intestine in sufficient amounts. Two double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled studies show that Activia may help reduce the frequency of minor digestive discomfort when consumed twice a day for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Minor digestive discomfort includes bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, and rumbling.  

 

Q: Is it better to consume probiotics through pills or by eating foods with probiotics?

A: There are several reasons why probiotic foods are the preferred choice for getting probiotic bacteria over pills. Consuming probiotics through dairy foods allows the stomach acids to be buffered and increases the chance that the probiotics will survive and make it to the intestine. Probiotic supplements in the form of pills don’t usually provide nutrients that the cultures found in probiotic foods like yogurt produce during fermentation. Finally, fermented dairy products, like yogurt, are also a source of nutrients that are critical for good health such as calcium, protein, and potassium.
