What is Stonyfield Organic?

Stonyfield Organic Yogurt is a yogurt that contains 6 active probiotic strains: Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus,, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bifidus, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactobacillus rhamnosus

Does it Work?

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, Stonyfield Organic Yogurt only has 5 viable strains. Unfortunately, the number of CFUs is not disclosed.

Artificial

All the ingredients of Stonyfield are safe and natural. It uses stevia instead of any artificial sweeteners.

Conclusion:

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

Criteria Our Comments
Prebiotics Prebiotics are a food source for probiotics. Without a food source, probiotics will not establish themselves in your GI. Yogurt contains simple sugars that probiotics can utilize.
6
Number of Probiotic Strains There are thousands of different kinds of organisms living in your colon. Some are more helpful than others.Some probiotic organisms are more helpful that others.Every probiotic product should have S. boulardii and L. acidophilus. A good probiotic supplement will have more probiotic strains. Stonyfield Organic Yogurt only has 6 strains, 1 of which will not survive past the stomach. It does not have S. boulardii or L. acidophilus.
N/A
Number of CFUs (in billions) CFU stands for Colony Forming Unit which is representative of the number of organisms in the product. A higher CFU means more organisms can be delivered to the gut.  The number of CFUs is not disclosed.
Enteric Coating Digestive juices will destroy many probiotic organisms. An enteric coating or delayed-release system that releases probiotics in the colon helps keep them alive. Unfortunately, Stonyfield Organic Yogurt has no protection mechanism for its probiotics and relies on the fact that some of the probiotics themselves are acid resistant.
No artificial coloring, dyes, or sweeteners. Acesulfame increases the risk of artherosclerosis. Stonyfield Organic Yogurt does not have any artificial dyes or coloring.
