What is acidophilus milk?

Rating: 100

This product is milk to which a beneficial bacteria (acidophilus culture) has been added. However, the milk is not actually cultured as is yogurt. During the process of making yogurt, milk and an added starter culture are placed in a warm environment (such as a temperature-controlled yogurt maker) so the starter culture can ferment the milk, which will thicken the milk. Acidophilus milk has the same culture but has not gone through the full thickening process.
