Q: Do you pasteurize your yogurt?
A: We never pasteurize our yogurt. However, the milk we use to make our yogurt is pasteurized before we add the yogurt culture. The federal government requires pasteurization to ensure that milk products do not transfer harmful bacteria to consumers. The primary consumers of milk and milk products are the very young and the very old, two segments of the population most susceptible to food-borne pathogens.
