Culture Crazy

Tillamook Yogurt is full of active cultures!

Tillamook Yogurt is the ultimate multi-tasker!  It’s convenient, a great on-the-go breakfast (it provides its own transportation vessel!), a possible dessert for those watching their waistline, an easy snack for your little ones after school, an ingredient for cooking, and if all that wasn’t enough, it also packs a healthy punch to your immune system!

Most yogurts contain active cultures needed to help fight off bad bacteria. Think of these little cultures acting as a “health army” fighting off bad bacteria trying to infiltrate your stomach and immune system.  Minus the fact that the names are incredibly hard to say (S. thermophilus, L. johnsonii, B. lactis, L. bulgaricus, and L. casei, huh?), these cultures are great partners when it comes to maintaining your health.

Adding active cultures to your diet has been said to help improve your immune system, aid in digestion, fight off a number of infections, help with the absorption of nutrients, and make it tolerable to enjoy yogurt for lactose intolerant folks, among other things!

Tillamook Yogurt is a delicious way to get some healthy active cultures into your diet.  If you aren’t a big fan of eating yogurt alone, try this yogurt-based smoothie recipe to sneak those active cultures in!

What Tillamook Yogurt flavor do you get your culture fix from?

Nearly all of the things you assert is astonishingly accurate and that makes me wonder why I hadn't looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific topic goes. However there is 1 position I am not too cozy with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the issue, let me observe what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Well done.

Hi Suahili,

Thanks for stopping by our blog! At this time, we do not share the quantities of bacteria we use in our yogurt because it is proprietary information. We wouldn't want anyone to copy our recipe!

All the best,
