yogurt

A mildly acid milk product produced by fermentation by enzymes produced by the Lactobacillus bulgaricus . Yogurt has no special nutritional value, nor is it likely to produce any advantageous change in the intestinal organisms as has been claimed. It has been used as a vaginal cream to restore the normal acidity and help in the treatment of THRUSH.
