Q: How much yogurt do I have to eat to get the benefits of the live bacteria?
A: The amount of yogurt necessary to obtain healthy intestinal flora will vary from person to person. The Dairy Council of California suggests 3.5 cups a day. It arrived at the 3.5 cups figure by calculating how many live cultures are commonly present in a given amount of yogurt and subtracting from that what would be lost during passage through the stomach. Our yogurt has many times the culture count of most yogurts, so you would probably not have to eat as much to benefit from it.
