Funny you should mention that.  I've been eating yogourt 2x/day with the BL regularis in it and drinking milk 2%, total 1 cup a day and for some strange reason it seems to be agreeing with my bowels for now.  Weird. I was giving up on eating and actually bought a bit of baby food, but decided to just keep trying. Christine1946 suggested a low residue diet, (I know what this is now, Christine) and that seems to be working as well.  Feeling much better for about a week now.  But to make yogourt, I wouldn't know.  Some people are reacting to the lactose in it, the other chemicals in it as well. Hard to say how things work.

Hi Happyliving--
You can make yogurt out of any "percent" type milk you want.  Just be sure you let it "cook" for 24 hrs at least.  Then the lactose in it will be completely used up and if you are lactose-intolerant as many of us are, the yogurt will be safe for you.  It's a great source of probiotics and calcium and vit D. Be sure not to use soy milk or lactose-free milk, tho,--they won't work--the yogurt bacteria feeds off the lactose in the milk.
I can't tolerate commercial yogurt but the stuff I make at home helps my gut a lot.

Here's a good link to making the "24 hour" 99+% lactose-free yogurt per the Specific carb Diet.... it is a sub-link in the main SCD site, but is a useful link for a yogurt newbie even if you are not using the SCD at all. Even without lactose, yogurt and dairy can be an issue for some, or the amount can be an issue (my case- I tolerate only a cup or two a day max) due to problems not just with lactose, but perhaps with casein, galactose, or the acidity of fermented products ion general. However, homemade yogurt is loaded with more probiotics than pretty much any supplement out there, not to mention the calcium and vit D.
