I make probiotic yoghurt as per the SCD recipe and generally eat quite a lot but was wondering most manufacturers of probiotic yoghurt dont give the numbers of probiotic bacteria in the yoghurt so how many are in there?
I noticed a probiotic yoghurt seems to contain 3 different bacteria two normal yoghurt ones and the probiotic one but was thinking that yoghurt bacteria have been bread for 10's of years to be fast and efficient at converting milk into yoghurt and maybe they are so fast at it the probiotic one has little chance to multiply before all the lactose has gone...?
So I tried a test and with my 'sterilised' (boiled) milk before a batch of yoghurt added a probiotic capsule contents (10 billion bacteria) and the result came otu as yoghurt though did take slightly longer (maybe 8 hours slower) than the normal yoghurt and it tasted fine. This would kind of tie in with the 'yoghurt' bacteria eatign most of the lactose before probiotic bacteria can. But I wondered how do I know that's probiotic bacteria in there? so repeated the test but adding nothing to some boiled milk and the result was...milk so it must have been the bacteria in the capsule making the yoghurt..
The next step is to make a large batch of this yoghurt and try it to see if it helps.... i.e. maybe drinking a pint or two a day...

Maybe its too early in the morning, but your post is totally confusing me. I wanted to reply, because I just happen to read yesterday that SCD yogurt has 700 billion bacteria per cup. It's on the website:

I don't know if that's the info you're looking for, but I thought I'd throw it out there. Hope that helps. ;-)
