Good and Bad Bacteria

| March 29th, 2017

Q: What is the difference between bacteria and culture?
A: “Culture” is a word that marketing departments decided to use instead of “bacteria” on labels and in advertising. There are good and bad bacteria, so “culture” is a safer word to use in a description of a food product. There is no difference; “culture” is “bacteria” on a yogurt label.
