The probiotic bacteria in Breyers Yogurt can help these people consume dairy products and the important nutrients they provide without the painful results.
Lactose-intolerant people often can eat fermented dairy products, such as yogurt, with fewer symptoms than with unfermented milk (even though yogurt has about the same amount of lactose as milk). Studies showed that yogurt helped people digest lactose; the lactase needed to break it down is produced by the lactic acid bacteria used to make yogurt, and the lactose is digested before it reaches the colon. Studies also have shown improved digestion of lactose in the presence of live and active L. acidophilus and bifidobacteria cultures in yogurt.
Breyers Light contains 10 times more yogurt cultures than regular yogurt.
