Yogurt Trek: The Search for Probiotics
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences / None
Region:Central Okanagan
City:Summerland, BC
School:Penticton Secondary
Abstract:My project investigated the concentration of probiotic bacteria in three probiotic yogurts after refrigerated storage (opened yogurt container) and also a week before the expiry date (unopened container). In both cases, the concentration decreased significantly but remained greater than one million/gram; the minimum number of live probiotic bacteria believed to be required for health benefits.
