What is Brown Cow Yogurt?

Brown Cow Yogurt is a yogurt that contains 4 active probiotic strains. 2 of these are in all yogurts: Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus. Brown Cow Yogurt, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus bifidus.

Does it Work?

Perhaps. yogurt is effective at delivering probiotics only if those probiotics are resistant to stomach acid. The stomach is more acidic on an empty stomach than a full stomach so we recommend eating yogurt with a meal. Lactobacilli are generally stomach-acid resistant because one of the products they make is lactic acid. Streptococcus thermophilus is the only strain that is not acid-resistant.

Therefore, Brown Cow Yogurt only has 3 viable strains and unfortunately, the number of CFUs is not disclosed.

Is it Safe?

All the ingredients of Brown Cow Yogurt are safe and natural. It uses evaporated cane sugar juice instead of any artificial sweeteners.

Conclusion:

3 stars. We like the number of strains which is higher than most others and the use of all-natural ingredients.
