What’s the difference between Yakult and yoghurt?
Yakult and yoghurt are both cultured dairy products made from milk fermented with live bacteria. Yakult is different because it’s made using Lactobacillus casei Shirota – a unique strain of bacteria that you won’t find in yoghurts. Yoghurt is not a substitute for Yakult and vice versa. They complement each other nicely as part of a well-balanced diet. unless specified, the bacteria in some yoghurts may not be strong enough to surive the acid in the stomach and reach the intestines alive.
